***This installation guide will assume that you
know how to remove the tail lamps from the vehicle as you will need to do so to
install these reflectors.
1.) Remove the stock reflector
assembly from the bottom of the bumper by pushing the clip down and the stock
reflector should pop out.
You can also check this general video on how to
remove the stock bumper reflector
2.) Before you install the
reflector, you may have to bore out the hole where the wires go through to allow
the reflector to sit flush.
It is recommended to remove the entire diffuser
assembly when creating the hole so that you have a clear and better idea of what
you are doing.
3.) Route the wires from the LED
reflector behind the bumper up to the tail lamps. Secure the wires with painters
tape so they do not fall back down into the bumper area.
4.) Locate your stock brake light
socket. The functions and color of the wires are the following:
WHITE Wire - Negative
White Wire w/ X's - Running Light
WHITE Wire w/ Red Dashes - Bright Mode
White w/ Bold Red Dashes - Negative
White w/ Thin Red Dashes - Tail light mode
White w/ Red Dots - Brake light mode
BLACK Wire = Negative
RED Wire = Positive (Bright Mode)
YELLOW Wire = Positive (Dim Mode)
BLACK Wire - Negative
WHITE Wire - Running Light
RED Wire - Bright Mode
Vehicle: Black Wire = Negative
Red Wire = Positive (Bright Mode) Green Wire = Positive (Dim Mode)
Keep in mind that not every vehicle may follow
this same exact color setup for the wires, we recommend that you check the
function of the wires using a multi-meter or test light first.
Once you have located the appropriate wires, use
t-taps (available at any automotive hardware store) and connect the wires
together. Use electrical tape to cover any exposed wires.
5.) Once everything is wired up,
please test the lights by turning on the lights and stepping on the brakes to
see if the LED reflector lights up as how the stock setup does. After doing
that, you can follow the steps in reverse order to re-install the tail lamps and
other components taken out. Enjoy your new
CR-Z LED reflectors!
