Installing Chrome/Amber Bulbs In 1999-2004 Mustangs

In this write up, we go over the installation process of the chrome/amber turn signal bulbs. Installation is very simple and no tools are required. These bulbs complement clear corner headlamps and turn signals very well. We installed the bulbs in our smoked clear corner headlamps for the 99-04 Mustang. The bulb will fit any application using a 3157 bulb type.

Tools Required:

  • None

First remove the two headlamp pins that secure the headlamp to the vehicle. Simply place your finger under the tab as shown below and pull up. There are two pins per headlamp. These are the only items securing the headlamp to the vehicle.

Once the pins are removed, gently slide the headlamps away from the body of the vehicle. It may take some effort, but eventually they will work free. Once you have some space, unplug the wiring harness from the headlamp bulb. Simply pull up on the tabs and gently release the harness.

Next, remove the wiring harness connected to the turn signal bulb. Depress the sides of the harness and gently pull it off the turn signal bulb. The picture below shows the harness removed from the bulb.

Turn the bulb counter clock-wise to remove it from the headlamp. The picture below shows the bulb partially removed from the housing.

The picture below shows the stock turn signal bulb located in its base. Gently pull the bulb out of the base to prepare for re-installation of the new turn signal bulb.

Take the new chrome/amber bulb and re-install it in the adapter. Be careful not to touch the bulb with your bare hands or fingertips. The new chrome/amber bulb installed is shown below.

Finally, reverse steps one through four and your installation is complete.
