Tip & How-To about Honda Pilot

How to replace the brake light on a 2003 honda pilot ?

There are two philips head screws that are only accessible after opening the rear tailgate lid. Remove the two screws which will allow the removal of the entire tail-light assembly. (Note that it might take some effort as there are two retaining lugs on the outer edge of the fixture which are press fitted but wiggle and pull and they will pop loose, just be careful.) The lights are identified tail and brake. A third turn to the left and the bulb housing can be removed. Simply pull the bulb from the plug and replace with like bulb bought at any auto parts store. NOTE : what ever you do .Do it carefully and slowly. Thanks.this will help.

how to replace right rear turn signal bulb. doesn't look like I can reach the bulb without removing the entire assembly. Looks like I need a tool that fits on a star head to remove it. Correct?


open the trunk lid and remove the screws. If they are star head screws, you'll need that typ of tool. The assmbly should easily be removed and you'll have access to the bulbs

Rear Window Glass won't Release


what it seems to me is that your latch is stuck in a locked posiiton. If so, open the hatch itself to expose the screws in the inside panel. Once you have removed the screws the pry the bottom and sieds of the panel away from the body using a panel popper or flat screw driver. Then while applying upwards pressure to the panel from the bottom give the upper part of the panel a quick pop with the heel of your hand.. this should release the panel from the body, this will expose the latch itself. Using 10 millimeter socket, remove the latch from the body thus allowing you to remove it in a safe manner.
