How to install JDM Clear Corners

November 27, 2008

The next round of modification came about a year after I got the car. I am not much of one for “show” parts for cars, but in this case I decided that the clear corner marker lights on a blue car were pretty nice looking. These are the JDM parts, and I got them off eBay (new).

Comparison between the front of the Mazda and JDM parts.

Comparison between the rear of the Mazda and JDM parts.

The set I got (off eBay) came with a set of blue lights.



To get access to the corners, you need to remove the 4 fasteners shown here (you are looking up into the wheel well from the floor). Insert a phillips screwdriver and turn 1/4 turn to pop out the caps, then give them a good tug. The actual markers have a single screw and a tab (see earlier picture) to release the rear edge. The front is just slid in a slot and pulls right out.

One difference between the markers is that the JDMs have a bulge that sticks out a bit, where the Mazda ones are flush.
