thanks to youtube ,Pulling the door panel 2 screws and pop clips takes less then 2 minutes with little practice (use plastic trim removal tool from cheap auto supply store) then unplug the 2 plugs (light and controls) and unsnap the door handle lever they all have push tabs for easy removal.
(3 plugs on drivers side)
If it is that difficult to disconnect you may be pulling crooked or not have the tab depressed enough and please "don't" pull on the wires
drill a hole with the supplied drill bit, (flat area in the pic works well)
screw in lens,
tap into existing wires for courtesy light
clean up wiring (black tape and zip ties)
plug in the door panel "light only" to adjust lens direction to desired angle
( optional - I used caulking to keep the light from turning and coming loose)
remember to hook up all 3 connectors before popping the door back on
enjoy your new puddle light!
