Hey guys, Ive forgotten and can't remember.:confused: How and where do the harness clips go on to the bottom of the light housing in trunk. I got them on a certain way but it just doesn't seem right.:eek: Does anybody have a pic of this, cause its easier to show than explain. Please help me clip these in the right way so I can move on to the next project on the car (New Grill). then I can getter back on the road when it warms up.:)

OK, I just took a trip out to the garage to look at my virgin tail-lights. There are two clips per tail-light. There is a lip that looks to be part of the tailpanel that surround the bezel and rear tail-light housing assembly. The clips fasten to the flat part of the lower horizontal lip just before it curves upward (vertical). Each clip has a 'thumblatch', for lack of a better term, bent into them. This faces up. You're right, a picture would be easier than a description, but the digital camera is on the fritz at the moment. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the response:thumbsup: , I think I have them in right but it just seems like the wires should be tucked under the housings better. If you clip them on backwards they tuck under real nice but the clips dont stay in place. I'll post pics later. I hate to be anal about this but I just want it to be right.:(

Bruce, I just went out and took another look. My description is accurate for the driver's side tail-light, but not the passenger side. On the driver's side, the 'thumblatch' pieces are pointing up and they are oriented so they face the tail panel. On the passenger side tail-light, the clip closest to the center of the car is the same as the ones on the driver's side, but the second clip is mounted almost directly under the center mounting studs of the bezel housing rather than all the way on the far right. This one clips to the welded on tail-light housing guard. As a result, the thumblatch is still pointing up, but it is facing towards the trunk interior rather than the tail panel. My wiring is tucked up pretty tight below the tail-light housing and is also fairly close to the inside face of the tail panel.

Funk, I don't have any pictures right now, but I guess it's time to go take some. Got a new battery for the digital camera last night and tomorrow's supposed to be sunny and somewhat mild. Snow is all but gone, so I don't mind backing the car out of the garage for better light. Next challenge after that is that I've not posted pictures to this site before. Worse comes to worst I can email them to you directly.
