I'm new to the forum and I need some help very quick ! My 2001 base Impala was rear ended so I am trying to take the opportunity to update the tail lights. How many different backup light assemblies (applique's) are there? I thought part # 10351924, which shows correct for late 2004 would work, it is black but does not fit my trunk lid well. I am confused, I need a black backgroung unit that will work.
The trunk lid was replaced with a used but straight unit, not sure of the year, and it came with a backup light assembly but it was scratched up, I got the body shop to order a new assembly and it came in today. The bottom lip of the light assembly does not want to tighten up against the trunk lid, it also leaves a big gap around the key hole. I would post a pic but I am not familier with Imageshack yet.
Like said above, all 00-05 taillight units are interchangable. If fitment is an issue, the lid is not in the condition you think it is.
Are you referring to LS Sport/SS taillight covers???
Nope not talking about about the taillight covers LS sport/SS covers.
I removed one good but scratched assembly from the trunk lid and replaced it with a new one. New one does not snug up to the trunk at the bottom and leaves a big gap between the trunk lock and the assembly. See pic, Thanks!
Nothing in the way, all the mounting feet are firmly touching the sheet metal of the trunk lid. The assy I took off mounted perfectly, I have swapped them back and forth 3 times. One fits perfect the other does not. The weird thing is that the assy matches up with the taillights perfectly. Very odd. Thanks for all the help. I will post a pic of the back end when done, I am changing out the Impala logo for a 1958 Impala quarter panel one. I think it will be different than anyone has done before - not sure.
