Replacing Porsche Tail Light Assemblies

Anyone know how easy it is to do? I think mine have been in there since manufacture. I am considering replacing them with LED brake light assemblies because they are so cheap $165 for a set.

If anyone has instructions on how to do this please link me!

Thanks

I replaced mine last year. As I recall, very simple, just a few nuts and it comes right off. Unplug the harness and you're good to go.

I bought those as well.

15 minute installation. The only thing you need is a wrench if the bolts are on too tight. I keep mine loose enough to undo by hand.
