    rear tail lights

    I am redoing my rear tail lights and took all the bulb connectors out and now have to put them back in All my pictures for this have somehow disappeared and I need to have a picture of what it looks like with the connectors This is inside the back of the housing Not 100% sure where it one goes now

    Thanks in advance

    Be careful, on the other side the socket with 2 wires, the red/grey and black/yellow are reversed.

    John, I am not sure we speak of the same thing.
    On one side the red/grey goes on the lateral prong of the bulb socket, on the other side, it goes on the medial side.
    I reassembled a set with the red/grey on the medial prong (both lights), and had full time brake light on the side connected wrong.
    The trick is to connect the red/grey on the prong that has the additional wire for the sidemarker.
