Fenix - he said he smashed them - not that he's ricing his car. BTW, there are no clear outs for 88 Accords that I know of (I've tried looking for them for my car before)

kingz - it should just be a simple couple screw process - a few on the outside and possibly one or two from the inside (pop the trunk). It really should be a simple swap process

I don't think there are any screws on the outside of the lenses. Chances are you are going to have to replace the whole tail light assembly, including reflectors and such, as they are one piece. For this you would have to go in from behind. That is, remove the trim inside the trunk to get to the screws that hold the entire assembly in place.

Course, I could be wrong.
