is it easy to take off the headlights and the tailights? i opened up the trunk today and tried to see if it would easy to do but it looks like you would have to take off the whole inside of the trunk to remove them completely... is this hard to do or if i am wrong can someone explain to me how to do it.
Also same ?'s with the headlights (minus the trunk part obviously)

1 more question now... is it possible to take off the plastic top on the engine? hah i rather actually see the engine then to see a big piece of plastic in there :).

I never needed to take off my headlights but the taillights are simple except for th inside ones because the screw it tucked under the plastic a little but you can manage to get it loose with a 13mm wrench. The cover just pops off there are 4 suction cups that come right off but pull them gently.

just pull off the plastic flaps on the outer side they have little handles on them. pull that off then use a 13m and take unscrew two bolts behind the plastic part you pulled off. One of the bolts are kinda under the plastic its a pain but you'll get it.

Thanks i figured it out this morning rite after i posted the message. Yea exactly what you said just push on the one side of the side marker closer to the front of the car it should slowly move in and then pull it out slowly and install the aftermarket part.
