    Question Cornering Lamp Removal

    Gonna be replacing these as they've been broken for quite a while (long enough for a broken piece of plastic to be worn smooth from the weather kind of long) So, I got the two screws off, gave it some good wiggles and prying (I believe but it is difficult to confirm) of my cornering lamps that don't have bulbs (again, not sure if this is true because its hard to tell; I don't see any lights turn on so I'm guessing there are none but there could be some!) but the darn thing doesn't want to budge. Pried between it and where it meets the headlight bezel to see what the heck is holding it and I can't really tell. Only found 1 thread but it wasn't very in-depth unfortunately. Looked at it through the door crack and still couldn't tell although it mentioned pulling it out at a 45 degree angle left or right depending on the position?

    Any help with this?

    Re: Cornering Lamp Removal

    Assuming you are talking about the one next to the headlight as opposed to the one mounted lower down in the bumper:
    After undoing two long stainless screws at the rear, they come out forwards at about 60 degrees from a line pointing forwards.
    it has a round pin that clips into a socket. they can be stiff so take it easy.

    Yes, the ones mounted on the outside of the headlamps. Still confused by "they come out forwards at about 60 degrees from a line pointing forwards." though, I'm not sure I get what you mean by that. I'll watch out for that clip though.

    Yeah I mashed that a bit. delete the first 'forwards'.
    you only have to look at the angle of the locator pin on the back side of the indicator to visualise what I meant.

    Re: How the heck do you remove front corner lights w/o damaging?

    Thank you oh so much for this write up, the visualization of the peg at a 45 degree angle aimed at the drivers seat helped out a lot. Was a bit stubborn but guess what!Name:  16731322101143547287446747467225.jpg

    Got it with the peg out attached!!!

    My cornering lamps dont have bulbs so it's more of a showpiece thing, lenses are busted in both at the front so all sorts of crap was in there. Now I can examine my headlights!

    Might even glue back two pieces of the lens that fit back into where I think they go, gotta clean them out first though.
    Thanks again Carbonized!
