Default how to: change the rear bulbs/remove tail lamps

Ok, I didn't take pictures of the whole process because im too lazy however I will give you the basic hint on what to do

TOOLS Required:
Flathead screw driver and pliers or a plug remover

First you need to remove these plugs from the side you want to change the bulb/replace the tail lamp

After you remove those you need to twist off the two plug/holder/god knows what to call them things that hold up the net:

After you remove those, pull the carpet back and there you have to unscrew three plugs that hold the tail lamp on, they are twist off so it's very simple~

And then there you go, Finished.
08 LT white/ebony suede
8000k HID, All stock bulbs replaced with LED's
LTZ Tail lamps w/V-LED HPW

More to come~

Currently working on bringing my car back to it's orginal glory due to the fact I loaned it to a moron.
