Default Clear corners on the 99!

I got a package today. It has clear corners! Some may remember the multi-month long issue I had trying to order clear corners for the 94, but the 99'* corner lamps came in right on the first try. I couldn't figure out how to get the headlights out of the car, so I called BillBoost while doing it. During the leaving of the voicemail message, I figured it out. You undo the furthest-out two bolts and push the headlight laterally out of place. The side lamp and headlight lamp assembly comes out as one piece.

The passenger side light and one rear tail light were burned out, but I went through my spare bulb set and fixed it all right up. I love having excessive amounts of wiring harnesses!

Mine kept falling off everytime I would shut the hood, but I jammed them in there and haven't had a problem yet LOL!!

Are they held in by a screw or a bolt? The clear corner screws onto the headlight and also is held in by tabs. But yes, jamming it works too. It'* how some things on the 94 used to be held...

Neither it just had some tabs that I was suppose to line up with the holes, I did that and it still fell off, so I grab some pliers and stuffed the rubber seal thing (around the corners) underneath the metal.. it works, it doesn't look bad, and most importantly they aren't falling off when I drive.

I put a little silicone on the tab and no problems. I can still get them off if needed.
