The tail light wiring harness is for those of you that have a 2007 to 2018 JK that need to replace the factory tail light wiring harness because there is a short, maybe yours has been cut up, for some reason it's just not working properly. Maybe somebody had installed a set of LED tail lights and hacked up that harness. Whatever the case may be, if you're looking for a factory style replacement, this is going to be a great choice at a lower price than going directly to the dealership. This is a very, very simple one out of three wrench installation, and I'm going to show you how to do it in just a second.So, as I said, not a whole lot of interesting things to say about this tail light wiring harness. It is, for all intents and purposes, a factory tail light wiring harness. It is going to give you everything, from the female side of the connector here that goes directly into the factory connector. It also has the plastic clip that holds the connector onto the body of the tail light, and of course, both sockets, one for your turn, stop, and tail light, and the other for the reverse light, so everything you need to refresh the wiring harness, from the factory wiring harness connector to the sockets.So, if you do have any corrosion, if you have anything that's cut, broken, bent, not working properly, this is going to solve all of those issues for you. This is going to be very inexpensive, coming in at right around $20, which, again, I think is a very fair price, especially when you consider going directly to a dealership for a part like this.So, very, very simple installation. Let me show you how to do it.For this installation, we used a #2 Phillips bit on a 3/8 impact, but you could just use a regular old Phillips head screwdriver. And we also used a flat head screwdriver, but you could use a trim removal tool as well, just to pry off the plastic clips.So, the first step in this very easy installation is removing the tail light from the Jeep. This is done by removing the two inner screws. So, if we were working on the driver side, that would be the screws closest to the spare tire. These outer screws are just there to separate the two halves of the tail light housing itself, but we're going to be removing the two inner ones to get the whole tail light housing removed from the Jeep.Once you have the tail light removed from the Jeep, you'll have access to the connector here. So, we'll go ahead and just pinch that, which will allow us to release the whole tail light from the rest of the harness.So, now we can go ahead and remove the factory harness from the tail light in order to pop the new one into place. Now, the factory connector is connected to the body of the tail light itself with one of those Christmas tree style clips here. You can remove the connector from the clip without taking the clip out of the tail light. If your clip's in good shape, you can go ahead and reuse the factory one, even with your new harness. That's what we're going to do here. So, just by giving it a little bit of a push, we can remove the connector, and the clip stays in place. If your clip is missing or not in good condition, you'll go ahead and use the new one that's included with your new harness. Once we have the connector disconnected there, you're going to give the sockets a quarter turn, and then they will release from the rest of the tail light housing.So, the next step is going to be removing your bulbs from your sockets, and these are just going to pull out. You do want to be careful because the glass is pretty thin, but really, just give them a pull. No twisting, or prying, or anything like that necessary, and they'll remove pretty easily. Then we can set the old harness aside.Now, with the new harness here, you're going to go ahead and pop your bulbs into place. Now, one thing to note is which socket does the tail light, the turn signal, and the brake light, and which does the reverse light. So, we can take a look at our old socket here. The white wire with the green tracer, that is going to be the socket down here. That is going to be the reverse light. So, as you can see right here, white wire, green tracer, that's our reverse light. We'll pop that bulb back into there, pop the other bulb into the other socket, and then we can replace them in the housing in the same way that we removed them. So, we'll get them lined up in here. Once they're lined up, you can just give them a quarter turn to lock them in place.The last step in preparing the tail light for reinstallation is attaching your connector back to the body of the tail light itself. As I noted before, we're going to be using the factory little plastic clip there, so we'll remove the one that comes with your new tail light wiring harness off of the harness itself. Use our screwdriver to help us pry that off, and then we can just slide the connector onto the plastic clip that holds it in place. And then, we're done. We can go ahead and pop the tail light back on the Jeep.Now, we'll replace the tail light in the same way that we removed it. First, plug the factory wiring harness into the tail light itself. Set the tail light in the body of the Jeep like so. Then, we'll get our screws started before we drive them home.So, if you are looking for a new tail light wiring harness, I would definitely recommend this choice, and you can find it right here at extremeterrain.com.
