Installing a light cover is as easy as 1-2-3, which, coincidentally, is exactly the number of steps required.
1. Buy a new light cover at your auto dealer or junk yard.(Duh!) Better call ahead first to make sure they have what you need in stock.(Double Duh!) When you are on the phone, be specific. Give the make, model and year of your vehicle. Also give and light cover location: front or rear, left or right.
2. Take out the screws that hold the broken or cracked light cover. A Phillips screwdriver will usually do the trick, but you may need a socket and ratchet. Whatever you do, don't lose the screws.
3. Put the new light cover on, tighten the screws, and you're done.
