Yeah, you basically pull out the festoon bulb and replace it with the included adapter. I recommend getting some gloves and pulling out the whole housing first before replacing the festoon. The original halogen bulb gets pretty hot so it's safer to work on it once it's unplugged. It does take a little effort to initially disconnect the housing, though.

I used the cheap bullet bulbs per Slimguy's post of 2 years ago. Took minutes and made a huge difference. I don't want the whole neighborhood to know when I open my trunk, so I don't need super-brights.

It's embarrassing how ****-poor the OEM trunk lights are. These LED emitters are dirt cheap, so why do they spec such godawful dim bulbs?
