      Video Review & Installation

      Today we're taking a quick look at and installing the Axial smoked LED third brake light, available for the '05 to '09 Mustang. Now, if you're the owner of one of these early S197s, whether it be a GT or a V6, you can pick this up for just about 35 bucks to change up the rear exterior appearance of your Mustang.Now switching from that factory halogen bulb to this full 16 set LED inside of the smoked housing here is going to give you a very, very modern appearance to the rear end. Switching from that bulb to this one, you get a brighter, redder light which is a little bit more attractive than the factory one here, and, of course, you get that nice smoked lens.Now, the smoked lens is over top of a chrome interior housing as opposed to that red option so it is completely different than the factory one here. Getting this, again, is just about 35 bucks. It's a very simple plug and play. There's no splicing, cutting, drilling, none of that nonsense, super easy.When it comes to that install, one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here. I'm gonna show you guys how to do it. And really, it doesn't even require any hand tools. The only thing I could imagine you might wanna use is a flathead screwdriver if you're having trouble prying off some of those push pin clips holding that light in place. Now, I wanna show you guys how that gets done. So let's get to it. First thing here you wanna do is pop open your trunk. Now, for the time being, I'm gonna set this one inside of our trunk here just to get to work on our factory bulb. So what we're gonna do here is disconnect this harness. Now, from here, you wanna go up there and pinch where the plastic clip's connected to the housing. Now, it might take a little bit of finesse because it is a tight space here, but you definitely can get it done.Now, again, it might be easy to use that flathead. So what I'm gonna do is put my finger on the back side and use the flathead to pry up on the one on the front. We have one released. We're gonna do the same thing over here. Now, with those clips released, you can start prying that off. Now, these are those push pin clips. Now, comparing the Axial option to the factory option, you can see there are clear differences. The general shape and housing construction is about the same. This one has a more of a billet finish then this one has that plastic finish. The bottom here is completely different as well since this uses a 16 LED strip. You can see that's built into the housing whereas this has the bulb attached to a bracket on the bottom. That is no longer gonna be the case here, and the harness is goinna be the same. We're gonna plug this directly into that factory one here to operate those lights exactly like your factory one would. So I'm gonna put our stock one aside and slip our new one into place.Now, I'm gonna drop our trunk lid down. Fish that harness through. You just wanna push down and snap the new light into place. Once that snaps through, grab your harness. Connect it to the factory one. It'll snap into place and you're good to go. You could always zip tie this back if you'd like to. It's not gonna interfere with anything like that. So you should be good here. We can shut our trunk and good to test it out.At the end of the day, guys, if you're looking for an inexpensive, extremely easy to install rear end appearance mod, this is a great way to go with the Axial smoked LED third brake light for all '05 to '09 Mustangs.
