You have to have the car on a lift or the front jacked up some how. I crawled under mine to replace a bulb and it was no fun. Locate the rear of the light assembly via a access panel, open the panel by removing one of those puch pins, once you get there its pretty self explanatory remove some screws and the assmebly will come out.

Here you go Mel, zipped instructions from the service manual. Your 2002 is the same as my 2001.

Thanks for your expertise

Hi AJ,
Thanks for your expertise.
You are a man who knows lots of things.
But it does not sound too easy.
I could not find any access panel by looking in the wheel well area.
Thanks,
Your friend,
Mel

First, you need to remove the tire so that you can see what you're doing. Then follow the instructions I sent you. Here's a little more detail on removing the access panel.

Thanks for getting back to me.

Hi AJ,

Thanks for getting back to me.
I wish you lived next door.
Do you have to remove any of the ground effects to get to the access cover?
After you get and remove the access cover, is it difficult to replace the unit?
Thanks,
Mel

You don't have to remove anything but the screws in the picture. Do you have anyone there who is mechanically inclined? If so, they should be able to look at those instructions that I posted and have those lenses in and out within a hour. So do you have someone?
