a freind of mine offered me his set fo clear sidemarkers from his 20o1 but i didnt know a) how they came off... do i just pry them out or what? and also are they all the same size? ie will his fit my car and will markers fit his car?
They pry off... take a small edge screwdriver and wrap a thin rag around it. Push it in at one of the smaller ends of the ovals carefully and it should pop off. Cougar-specific sidemarkers are universal for all New Edge Cougars.
When I replaced my side marker lenses, I used a string placed into gap between the right side of the lens and the sheet metal, gently pull the strings toward the other side, pulling up slightly to pop the lens out (you might want to wear gloves to keep the string from cutting into your hands). You can use a small screwdriver, but use some masking tape under it, on the sheet metal, to protect the paint.
Also, go to the "How to's" category of the NECO Forms, and search "side markers". This will give the experiences of others installing side marker lenses.
well damn i went about it the very hard way (at least the most time consuming anyway) and i pulled the inner fender pieces out to change mine...then you can just squeeze the prongs together and push out..i like the string/dental floss idea best though..
