After searching, I've found some info on this, but always seems to be from different posts, I decided to try and compile it in one location, so hope it helps. This is my 2000 LC

LED vs stock, pretty simple plug and play in the rear, the top led for backup is white, the middle for turn is yellow and the lower for lights/brakes are red. Even though the lens are colored, the colored LED's look and show thru much better.

On to the front, remove turn signal housing first, undo the (1) phillips screw, then using a plastic pry tool on the bottom part of the lens, pry back and fourth a few times, and the lens will break loose, then just pull outward, tilt sideways, and pull it thru.

Some posts mention going in from the bottom, but that is unnecessary and takes a lot of tome, the tab on the lens is just for alignment.

Here's a pic of the front LED turn bulb compared to stock

There is a small bulb next to the turn signal bulb, easy to reach and replace.

Next was both hi/low beams. The LED replacements stated that it would work with DRL, but after install it did not. Not big deal as I was happy with the light output.

Forgot to mention I started with the passenger side, when doing the driver side, I removed the battery hold down, and without disconnecting the battery just moved it back a few inches, and with the turn signal housing out, I was able to reach all the bulbs for replacement.

Now on to the fun part, you must replace the turn signal flasher, or you'll get the fast flash. By taking off the trim panel under the steering wheel, and the metal plate behind that, it's a lot easier to access.

Location circled, it's behind a bracket with (1) 10mm bolt. Just undo the bolt, and pull it around all the wiring, and unplug.

Since the new relay had a different configuration for the metal bracket attachment, I just used a wire tie, which worked fine to reattach.
