Easy, from under the hood are two bolts on the inner side of each, and one alignment pin. Undo the bolts, unscrew the light plug and it'll pop right out.

I bought new ones on eBay since I doubt the junkyard will have non faded ones... who knows.

If memory serves, the nuts on those two studs require a 11mm wrench or socket.

That's my memory also.

It may be helpful to use either an open end, ratcheting box end, or a through socket for one of them IIRC. Seems like it's rather difficult to get in there for one with a deep throat socket and a ratchet.

Also, I'd remove the headlamps first (to get room to GET to the dang nuts) IIRC.

It's been years since I've touched one, though; last time on Ruby Jean was when an Explorer tried to turn left in front of my wife and I had to repair the front end of Ruby.

No need to pull the headlight. It really isn't difficult to get to those two nuts. R&R takes only a couple minutes.

A 7/16" wrench fits perfectly. Once loosened they are easily spun off by hand.

Do you realize you were just passed by a NASCAR? I didn't think so.

I pulled both of mine last week and they are easy to get to with a 1/4" extended socket and socket wrench.

Neither of the corner lamps had the screw on the screw thread bolt. Just the two 11mm bolts.

I've had too many other cars to mention...
