Question Help with Tails, opinions?

Hey you guys, one of my first mods when I got my Civic was tails. I got Altezzas, yes stupid me. But uh, I've been looking into this 03 to an 04-05 Tail Conversion (AND I KNOW THERES A SHITLOAD OF THREADS) but I can't find the one that helped me before. I read that you plug everything in just like the 03 tails, but on the 04's theres like a little white plug you don't plug in, it'll just sit in there. Is that true? Someone help me out..heres the tails I'm thinking about doing and get a tint on the chrome part.

I'm interested in this as well since I am gonna get those tails for my 02 as well.

Also, check out ebay for those. They're on there for like $110 +s&h

Re: Help with Tails, opinions?

DO NOT buy the altezzas. Go w/ the 04's. Its simple

You need an exacto knife.

Everything fits fine except for one of the sockets which isnt a big deal. Once you have them to compare you will see what i mean when you look at this diagram. It wont make sense until you have both tails in hand.



cut where the red is.

01-03 tails have 4 bulbs
04-05 have 3 bulbs
Just disconnect the bulb holder and tuck the wire somewhere if you're gonna go with 04-05 tails. Its a small bulb either size 168 or 194 that goes into the side of the 01-03 tails
