So first you have to take out the corner light housing and marker light. Then thread up the blinker bulb light up to the corner.
Now you HAVE to disconect at least one of the blinker bulbs to get the mount. This is your template to cut and notch out your new hole. Don't just guess. You want as tight a seal as possible, so you need this and yes, it is a classic Toyota connector so...its a major PITA to get apart
So now you have your corner light. Some of these pics are of my new clear corners and some of my OEM ones. The shiny ones are the newer ones and have the white tab over the marker light hole. Please disregard the tab. Its just for shipping purposes, you do not want to cover the marker light hole as you will be putting the marker light back in.
drill a small hole below the marker light. You can use a 1'' bit if you'd like too. I would not recommend going any larger tho as you can fine touch up the hole with a file instead of overshooting and having too large of a hole. Or just start small and file it out larger. I did both ways. Filing out takes much more time(obviously) but works. So if you don't have a 1'' bit, no worries.
Small drilled hole
Large drilled hole
either way after you have drilled get a round file and go to town. You want the light mount to fit nice a snug with as little space between the housing and mount as possible. Once i start going in, it'll catch on the tabs. You then have to notch out for the tabs. do this with a file as well or dremel. Its just plastic. Whatever way you want to cut it all out will work..just don't cut to much..Here is one of mine..not a prettier one..
Then the mount should sit nice a tight
Then used compressed air to clean out the housing, you prolly won't be able to get it all out, but get as much as possible.
Now just reassemble! I will get videos up soon of how it looks at night. Its actually VERY bright. works great really.
Also if you still have your half amber housings, you will NOT have to change out bulbs! The blinker bulb sits so close to the amber side that it'll be plenty amber. here is a pic of the BLINKER light on not the marker light(tho it is on as well).
If you are going to be running clear corners..you had better get some amber bulbs.
Videos of it in action coming soon!
For 98-00(I have been told this works great!)
For 01-04s(should also work with 98-00)
As he said ^, the best way is to do it like this: *see attachment*
You will need to cut the mounting area out of your old blinkers and shape it, as best you can, to the blinker housing. What gaps you still have will just be filled in by the silicone. Mine work really well that way
...otherwise you dont have enough room inside the blinker housing. (I know from personal experience )
in the process of finishing, took some good stage photo's for anyone else 01-04 that may want to look at some. will upload after I am finished.
cutting the housing off the blinker cover
corner marker light, housing, blinker cover
drilling a 1" hole in the corner marker light
hole just a little to small for the bulb to sink in.
dremel to make the hole a bit wider for the bulbs
new hole for the bulb
tapeing the light to the corner marker light so i can glue it in the right spot. I did this to insure that the bulb would fit when plugged in and not hit the sides of my drilled hole, you could match the hole size of the housing, but I liked this better.
remove tape and twist the bulb out but leave the housing. be very careful not to rip the sealed glue. i did and had to redo it, and put lots of pressure on the housing during removal. I mean I'm sure if you had patients and just let it dry completely. I also added more glue after this stage. Like previously sad, only did this to ensure that the bulb would go into the 1" hole.
vulkem as a sealant.
