Removing tail lights to replace bulbs

Two questions actually.

I want to replace my bulbs with led. These lights donít have visible screws. Iím ASSuming that they pop off? But I donít want to force them and break the lenses. Iím sure that lots of folks on this forum have done so, so how do I remove the lenses without damaging them?

If there a cross reference out there that will tell me which led lights will fit and replace the old bulbs?

Thanks folks!

The marker light lenses do indeed pop off. I don't know about the tail lights though.

There are about 1,000 YouTube videos on how to get the back up lights and marker light lens off.

I'm not a fan of led bright tail lights.
They serve little purpose other than to blind people when you hit the brakes or in making your vehicle a nuisance to follow.
I really really try, be it bright tail lights or doing 55mph in a 75 zone, to not be a nuisance.

I'd sure skip the tail lights and brake lights. Why are you going to change them?

My post in the link below addresses the Lux value of brighter reverse lamps.
Below is a link to most of my modifications either accomplished or pending.

Ducksface, but don't you see, if he can get the lens to come off, he'll be able to ask another question on how to stop the leaks in the lens. Just a thought.
