tail llights

If the parts say LH and RH I believe those are part numbers for front lights.

To find out which bulb go's where; first turn on your headlights and one bulb in the tail light should be on and that go's in the red portion of the light. Then push on your brake pedal and another bulb or the same bulb if it has two filaments inside should come on which also go's in the red portion I believe. then turn your signal light and a different bulb will start blinking which should go in the remaining socket of the tail light. Hope this helps ya out.
