2. Exit the vehicle and take a look.

3. If all of the LEDs are on and look like they do below congratulations you are all done you may turn the lights off and secure the nuts on the back of the taillight housing in the trunk.

If one or more bulbs are not on:

1. Make sure lights are off.

2. Remove LED from socket. Rotate LED 180 degrees.
