Hey everyone, 1st post so hopefully I didn't botch the forum rules. My '05 RSX got rear ended, so I've taken off the hatch, rear bumper (just the plastic part), and the tail lights. I don't want to spend half the value of the car on parts, but I'm able to get everything I need off an '02 RSX for a pretty good deal. If I'm replacing the hatch, rear bumper and taillights all at the same time, am I able to go between the two models? From what I've researched, there're some differences year to year that would make the taillight incompatible if I was just swapping that, but can't find any clear answer as to whether or not I can swap the whole rear all at once.

Thanks!

You can swap the whole rear at once. The hatch is the same across all years. Just make sure when you get the taillights, you get the correct taillight brackets. You can't use 05-06 taillight brackets on a 02-04 taillight.
