Black '08 Sports tail lights!
MOD #2 is complete! The chromed tail lights were replaced with the '08 Sports tail lights.
The Subaru factory/OEM part number is: 84201SA360 & 84201SA370, costs around $300! :icon_eek:
If you don't mind going with aftermarket parts, you can get a set for under $200. Click on the Amazon link ▼
Not a recommendation, just an option. I personally prefer factory/OEM parts. :wink:
This is a very simple plug & play MOD for '03 thru '08 Forester models. Pop the hatch & you'll see 2 10mm bolts that hold the tail light assembly on to the body. Remove the bolts & pull the outside out of the 3 clips. On the '03 X I had to transfer the bulbs, since they're hardwired (simple). On the later models you just unplug the wiring harness. I should note here, that the plug, at first glance, appears to release by pulling up on the release tab, but it pushes in to release. After the new tail light is plugged in, position the 3 posts to the clip holes, push to seat & insert the bolts. Another note here. The threads on the bolts have a tendency to cross thread, so if it doesn't go in easily, back it off & try again! :wink:
Here's half & half. An '08 Sports tail light on the left & the standard chrome tail light on the right.
