Installation Instructions For Derwankel RX-8 Puddle Lamps Installation of the puddle lamps should take approximately 45-60 minutes per side to complete following these simple instructions. Allow yourself plenty of time. There is no need to rush and potentially make mistakes that could lead to additional work or worse, damage to your new puddle lamps. Please read through these instructions entirely before beginning the installation so you are familiar with the installation steps. We strongly recommend you place a towel on the floor immediately under your car’s mirror while installing these lamps. If you accidentally drop an item, it is less likely to be damaged if it falls on the towel. List of packing materials that shipped with your puddle lamp order.

3. Push the outer edge of the mirror (the glass area) all the way in on the outside so you can get your fingers behind the mirror as shown. Pull on the mirror with steady pressure until it pops loose. You must be brave and don’t be concerned about breaking it … this is the way it is done. 4. Three ball/socket connectors packed in grease hold on the mirror. You must continue pulling on the mirror to extract it from all three sockets. If you have heated mirrors you will need to disconnect the two leads (not shown).
