Easy, from under the hood are two bolts on the inner side of each, and one alignment pin. Undo the bolts, unscrew the light plug and it'll pop right out.

I bought new ones on eBay since I doubt the junkyard will have non faded ones... who knows.

If memory serves, the nuts on those two studs require a 11mm wrench or socket.

That's my memory also.

It may be helpful to use either an open end, ratcheting box end, or a through socket for one of them IIRC. Seems like it's rather difficult to get in there for one with a deep throat socket and a ratchet.

Also, I'd remove the headlamps first (to get room to GET to the dang nuts) IIRC.

It's been years since I've touched one, though; last time on Ruby Jean was when an Explorer tried to turn left in front of my wife and I had to repair the front end of Ruby.

No need to pull the headlight. It really isn't difficult to get to those two nuts. R&R takes only a couple minutes.

I pulled both of mine last week and they are easy to get to with a 1/4" extended socket and socket wrench.

Neither of the corner lamps had the screw on the screw thread bolt. Just the two 11mm bolts.
