Rear indicator wiring routing?
on: July 23, 2021, 09:10:34 PM
hi all,

I looked around the forum for any help but coulnd't find any posts...

I"m in process of replacing the rear stock signals with TST stalks but wondering how i get to the connectors?  Do i need to remove the tail bodywork?

Has any one seen any insturctionals on this?

When you say "stalks" I suppose you are talking about the pod turn signals. All you need to do is remove top half of the rear body. It's super easy...just a couple of screws and the plastic clips are part of the body panel.

As for wiring, just cut part of the original signal wires (part you are replacing) and splice wires. If you haven't ordered the TST signals yet, they sell plug-n-play wire adapters that make it fool-proof.

Not positive but I think Canada gets the same non-led stock signals so you will also want to order (at TST) the flasher relay so your blinkers don't blink super fast.

just a pic to show how the tail looks when opened - i THINK I circled the four screws that need to be removed, so you can slide the tail back and up.

This tail tidy fitting video will probably answer your questions I believe.
