I just did it, it took me less than 5 mins. My aluminum trim popped right off, no tools needed. Great DIY!

Pardon me, and I could be wrong here, but this is THE DIY(DO IT YOURSELF) thread for the mod. NOT the buy-part-replace-stock-part thread.

Did mine this morning. My first mod of a car since high school, and that was a long time ago! Now, I'm hooked again. It is simple, as everyone has said. However, being careful is important. Perhaps that is obvious.

BTW, I like the grey "lever" that locks and releases the wiring harness from the switch. It's nice to see quality beneath the surface.

Great DIY. Next up, angel eyes. Thanks to all on this thread.

I meant to say something about that lock lever too. It's a pretty intense little design

Did you try the two plastic card thing pictured midway through this thread? Costco cars are pretty good - not too thick. I actually used a costco card and a NYC Metrocard (very thin). I squeezed them in, metrocard on the dash side. Then I slipped a long thin screwdriver blade between them. That opens up a little space. I suppose you could use two metro cards if you're having trouble getting them in.
