remove the rear bumper. this is super easy:
theres 1 screw in each wheel well. then the 2 allen headbolts when you open up the hatch (black) and 2 clips underneath the rear of the bumper (black as well) then just pull the side out (they are clipped in)

then you pop off the rear light covers in the hatch area. There are 3 nuts you must remove on each taillight, then just unplug the light harnesses (4 of them).

are the lights you purchased made for a JDM model or the US model? If they are made for the JDM model you will have to extend a couple wires for 1 harness on each light. If they are for the US model then everything should just fit right.

sorry i dont have pics, I shouldve taken some for a how to when i changed mine.
