Hatch Euro tails wiring question I have bulb sockets and pigtail harness

1. I have the bulb holders and the harness that goes to the bulbs do I still have to do the wiring deal under the glove box or can I cut off my plug from the US spec tails and wire it up to the Euro tails harness and just leave the Reverse wire un plugged?

I don't want to run a bunch of wire through the hatch I want it as factory as possible, preferably plug and play.

2.
Will the hazard switch work correctly after this mod? "only orange flashing out back"

3. Ive found like 5 different how to's???? which is the best one to use

You are still going to have to re-wire your car. Simply adding Euro pigtails will not solve the separate turns. Only way to separate the turns is to re-wire your GCM. Best how-to is this one:

That is how I did mine:)

If you use the how-to I posted, your hazard switch will work correctly as well.

Yes, that is another good thread. The diagram you posted is what you need to do for the GEM, you will still have to pull the D/S hatch carpet off to re-wire that also.
