Be careful on the way they're oriented though, because if they're installed upside down, they'll less effective.

It happened to us after I hit a deer and the collision shop put one back in upside down.

Good luck!

Keep in mind that LEDs are polarity sensitive so if they're installed with reverse polarity, they won't work (unless they have a module that will allow you to connect it either way and it will direct the proper polarity to the LED elements).
