Instructions

  1. 1

    Remove the lens of the tail light from the vehicle. You can remove the lens by unscrewing the bolt or screw that is located in the back of the light, which can be accessed through the boot. Use a wrench to remove the lens.

  2. 2

    Drill a 15/16 inch hole into the tail light lens. You can drill the hole in any desired location. It may be best to use safety goggles when drilling the hole, to prevent debris from hitting your eyes.

  3. 3

    Deburr the newly drilled hole so the bezel of the blue dot fits in the hole perfectly. Deburring is the process of removing unwanted material so the area is smooth. You can deburr my filing or sanding down any raised edges along the hole.

  4. 4

    Place a dime size amount of RTV silicone along the hole to prevent water leakage. Purchase the RTV silicone at your nearest auto shop.

  5. 5

    Insert the bezel into the hole. Make sure that the prongs of the bezel go through the inside of the lens. Hold the bezel in place and flip the lens over. Insert the blue dot into the bezel with the faceted side facing out.

  6. 6

    Bend the bezel prongs with pliers to secure the blue dot to the lens. Screw the lens back on the tail light.
