Here is what they are supposed to look like. In the first pic you put the grey part in behind the bumper and slide the light in from the front and clip the 2 pieces together and then hook your wire up and you are done.

The black thing with the screw is what seperates your 2 pieces. The lens in front then the grey part kinda clips in on the lens part. I can't get anymore pics, as that lens is gone.. the only ones i have are in my car.. You'd have to search the web.. Sorry.
