You can buy the side markers here:

http://yhst-1408381693991.stores.yahoo.net/jdmsici9692l.html

Avoid ebay, since you can get fake ones :angry:



OEM EK9 Side markers photo.

You should follow this template:



Photo of the placement on the fender, 155 mm from the top of the molding to the bottom of the tape and 140 mm from the edge of the door to the edge of the tape.



Find the center of the intersection, which is where the exact center of the sidemarker:



Then findd the center of the template and line up the two over each other and tape it down:



A drill was used to make the initial hole, then you can use a metal nibbler from RadioShack:





The final hole:



After cutting the hole, add some touch up paint on the bare metal to help prevent rust.

Wiring begins:




There are two wiring options. USDM (Sidemarker only blinks when turn signal is on) or JDM (Sidemarkers stay on and blink alternately with the signal).

Pull back the fender liner and remove the corner/parking light. There will be 3 wires going to the bulb. Tap into the corresponding wires for each blinking style.

USDM:

Tap into green(turn signal) and black(ground) wire.

JDM:

Tap into red(parking light) and green(turn signal) wire.

Now side markers are in! :wow:







Use this photos to compare with the oem ek9 side markers installed in a EK9. I see them 98% perfect.

Recommendations:

Use a spare fender to test first!

If you don't have patience, don't do it.

Remember to put some touch up paint in the hole to avoid corrosion.

Keep in mind that in certain USA states, and other countries; you can get pull over by the cops if they want because of this modification.

Additional Measurements, just in case you have any doubts:

also want to note..i think youll be ok in the states now a days with the modifications since many stock cars come already with side marker lights, take evos, lancers, bmws audis and volvos for example...they are all coming standard with side marker lights.

just a quick question about the wiring.
so im a little confused because you brought up the red wire for the JDM wiring style but the wires on the sidemarkers are only green and black. so how does that mean you would take the black wire from the sidemarker and hook it up to the red?

Has anyone confirmed these measurements? When i mock it up, it looks higher than it should be.
