    Why wont my new blinkers go in

    I've never liked my smoked blinkers, they probably looked badass when they were knew, but i think the lenses were clear, with a black gloss background, but now the lens is foggy, just looks bad, plus the blubs melted the back of them, i had to cut the, apart to remove the plugs.

    I bought OEM replacements, after seeing May COTM, i decided factory ambers looked good on a black car.

    I can NOT get them to go in, I had to pry the old ones out, but not too difficult. with the new ones, I put the skinny end in the gap going back towards the fender, get the larger front end in place, then slide it in.

    Feels like its going in right, and the front its lined up, it just wont quite go far enough, the edge of the blinker snags on the joint where the bumper and front fender are bolted together. both are off by about a half inch, and i exhausted myself trying to get them in place..



    This is how I'm sliding in the right side


    snagged on the left

    Looks like you're supposed to install them into the front bumper cover then put the front bumper cover on the car.

    Where did you get those lenses from? I ask because the 93-97 T/As use a similar wraparound lens, but I dunno if they are longer.

    Thats what I did last time.

    Well I got them in, barely, used a trick I saw on LS1 tech. took out the 5 pins on the top of the bumper, then pulled the bumper towards me till it popped underneath the plastic piece that its its normally on top of...yeah....its weird, but it bowed the bumper just enough to barely get them in.
