yes, they are the same on a 2003. I have a 2003 tongue

You just undo the screws in the wheel well and pull back the plastic so you have access to the inside of the bumper.

Turn the plug counterclockwise to release it from the Sidemarker housing and then pull the bulb straight away from the plug.

To replace it, go in reverse grin

NP, it's simple as pie.

I'll give you some advice: turn the wheel so that you can have more room in the wheel well wink thumbsup
