XLE AWD Taillight swap to Limited/Platinum 3 bar LED

Anybody swap out the taillights both inner and outer? I've obtained 3 out of the 4 pieces currently and looked to see that the wire bundle goes into the bottom quarter panel with a plastic snap piece that holds it into the frame of the vehicle. I can pull but I don't want to ruin the rear quarter panel by pulling too far to get the wire connectors pulled out to swap them. Switching the LEDs looks like there's a different number of cables between the XLE and the Limited light clusters so it doesn't look like it'll be a simple plug/unplug the cables in the back of the light. The Limited inner light has an extra 3LED cluster towards the center that isn't there in my XLE so i know that it will require replacing the entire taillight as well. I went to the dealership to pull numbers and apparently they're all the same between LE/XLE/XSE and Limited/Platinum. 3 different types all with the same exact number, just different prices. Obviously there's differences in the lights but i have no way to determine which piece to purchase to get the last piece I would need...the Inner passenger light... anybody know how many bolts/screws i need to pull in order to swap out the taillights?

You can try to unlip the connector that is lower inside the bumper first. That connector is not bolted down to the car and will release your tail light.
Thank you , I succeeded 馃槆

Cool, well done, Good job! Where did you get the tail lights and how much did they cost you? Thanks!

I just saw a white plat awd with non-led brake lights. It still had the temporary tags. It definitely was plat since it had a camera on the front grill for 360 view. Rear bumper bottom was glossy black too. I also doubt anyone would replace led ones with non-leds on 2 weeks old car.

if you're right, that's really sad that Toyota is doing that....

I was going to take a picture since I was right behind it, and could have read VIN on temporary tag too. But I figured it is what it is so why bother.

Most likely it is during the day and the taillights only light up when it鈥檚 dark.

If anyone wants to grab a set, eBay has a coupon for 20% off all auto parts until the end of May. Use coupon NASCAR22.

you can get it on taobao.com
All,
I have an LE .. Can I just buy the two inner lights and keep the outer lights ? Or do I have to buy all 4 as a set?

Does it come on as brake light or it's only when you turn the head light on?

3-bar light strip as rear side marker, no change while braking.

LE/XLE rear brake LED has 3 states: OFF, DIM/side marker, FULL/brake
XSE/Limited/Platinum rear brake LED only 2 states: OFF, FULL/brake

81560-08090 left outer
81580-08090 right inner

My parents have a XLE and really want the premium taillights with the 3 bars after seeing our family鈥檚 Limited. So I just have to order these 4 part #s? No other parts, wires,etc? Is it all plug and play on a XLE? What is the difficulty level on a scale of 1-10? (I understand this is highly subjective)
Anyone know if we can get a group buy on these?
