Started lurking before I bought my SC off lease in 2008. Owned her for 6 years and still a faithful daily driver. I guess that makes me an old timer. This is the best forum I know of. :thumbup:

My 2005 has a clear lens over the tiny bulb on both passenger and driver's side. It is about 1.5"x 0.75" and can be removed quite easily as long as you put pressure on the correct tabs.
