You want to put some of that on both sides of the wiring harness connection ends. Now we want to go ahead and plug in the appropriate connector into the one on the vehicle here.

Go ahead and put on the plug cover that is included in the kit as well. This will conclude the installation of wiring harness part number 41165 on a 2008 Chevy Colorado.
