Mustang LED Taillight Assembly (1967-1968) Installation Instructions
1967-1968 Mustang LED Taillight Assembly
This LED Taillight Assembly fits every 1967-1968 Mustang.
These great LED taillights feature 84 bright LEDs, a polycarbonate, high temperature lens and fully sealed electronics, along with a factory style 1157 plug for easy installation! Make sure to use HW2811, a two terminal LED flasher, to insure proper flashing from your new LED bulbs.
2. Remove the original Mustang taillight assemblies
by first removing the light socket/wiring, then removing the six taillight bezel nuts. The light socket can be removed by twisting it a half turn. Two threaded stems on each of the three bezels per assembly fasten the lens and taillight body in place and also get removed.
3. Once the taillight socket and six nuts are removed, pull the three bezels straight outward and the lens/body assembly will be free.
4. The next step is to disassemble the old lighting assembly.
5. To do this, first remove the rubber or foam taillight body pad.
6. Next, remove the six Phillip head screws that retain the lens.
7. Remove the old lens gasket.
10. Pull the wiring connector through the back hole of the body and secure the LED fixture to the body/gasket assembly with six screws.
11. The original body pads were replaced with new Mustang taillight body pads
. It is a good idea to fasten the bezel to the taillight assembly prior to fitting them on the car to ensure the holes in the body pads are correctly lined up with the holes in the light body.
12. The original taillight sockets can be reused. However, I am building new wiring harnesses from scratch, so I chose to buy Mustang taillight socket replacements
. Install them by twisting them in the opposite way of how they came off.

Note: You will need a Mustang Two Terminal LED Flasher
for correct operation of the blinker and hazard functions. The stock flasher relays are rated for lights with a higher electrical load. LED lights have a very small electrical load and need flasher relays appropriately suited.
