    I have a quick question for you guys/girls. Would the tail light from an 02 - 05 Ex fit the 06 - 10?

    Thanks for any answers in advance.

    It might fit into the spot, but i think the 4th gen lights use 3 sockets whereas the 3rd gen only uses 2. Someone please correct me if i'm wrong

    I know this is an old thread, but... I just installed an aftermaket LED assembly from an '05 on my '07. OEM may be a little different, but here's my findings:
    1. The Park/Turn/Brake uses the same socket.
    2. The Reverse uses a different socket. That required some work to get a functional reverse light!
    3. The mounting screws are in a different location. In my case, I had to shave down what appeared to be an alternate location for the screws and glue the mounting screws in place (seems to be holding well after a couple of weeks).

    Not yet. I have to take them them back off to shave off a bit more of the mounting tabs so that it is more flush with the body, and redo the Reverse lights (the driver side does not come on sometime).
