INTRODUCTION:

This bulletin provides a procedure for replacing the rear combination lamp wiring harness.  The harness is now available as a service part separate from the lamp assembly.

 

PART INFORMATION:

The wiring harness part number is: 84981VA140.

 

REMINDERS: 

  • Always order the most up-to-date replacement parts based on the specific VIN being repaired.
  • The packing (gasket) between the lamp assembly and the rear body panel is a one-time use item and MUST be replaced whenever the lamp assembly is removed.

 

SERVICE PROCEDURE / INFORMATION:

REMINDER:  Customer satisfaction and retention starts with performing quality repairs.

Although the  procedure for replacing the combination lamp wiring harness is new, the Service Manual procedure for removing and installing the complete lamp assemblies is unchanged.  The existing Service Manual procedures contain information critical to performing an effective repair the first time and every time.  This includes but is not limited to: important SAFETY precautions, proper inspection criteria, necessary special tools, required processes and related one-time-use parts needed for a complete and lasting repair.

 

IMPORTANT:  Before the harness can be removed from the lamp housing, a portion of the connector lock must be CAREFULLY trimmed away.  Use a good, sharp wire cutter as shown below while being careful to not damage the tab portion of the housing the connector slides and locks back onto.

  • Install the new harness onto the housing and re-assemble in reverse order of removal. REMINDER:  Don’t forget to reinstall the foam block (packing) and always use a new lamp to body gasket.
  • Confirm all the functions of the combination lamp operate normally to complete the procedure.
