Here's the step by step procedure from the beginning.

  1. Carefully remove the black one inch wide plastic molding strip that runs along the interior side of the tail light. This can be pried off carefully without breaking the plastic clips that hold it in place.
  2. Using a 10mm socket, remove the two bolts that you see which secure the tail light housing.
  3. The tail light housing is also held in place with three or four plastic clips which can be broken rather easily if you don't do this next step carefully. Begin prying the plastic tail light using a plastic putty knife or screwdriver. The top clip comes out pretty easily and so does the bottom one.
  4. On a cold winter day, the middle clip is the one that can break rather easily so gently rock the tail light or wait for warm weather when the plastic isn't brittle.
  5. Once the tail light "bucket" is removed it's a simple matter to replace the bulbs.

I just replaced one and had the same problem. You have to remove the moldings from around the housing and remove the screws behind there and then it should come out.

Tail light bulb


There are removable covers inside both sides of the hatch. You will need to gently pry them back with a flathead screwdriver wrapped in a cloth, to expose the two bolts that hold the tail light assembly to the vehicle. Then remove the two bolts, pull the assembly away so you can reach the bulb socket, turn it counter clockwise and pull the socket assembly with bulb out. Remove and replace the bulb (use the cloth to install the new bulb, don't touch it). Reverse for reassembly.

How do i change brake light bulb on 2003 nissan murano


To change any of the three tail light bulbs, open rear hatchback locate the thin black strip (approx. 2"W x 21"L) between the body and the tail light assembly. Next, simply pry off black strip with a small screwdriver wrapped with a rag as to not chip the paint (strip is held on by two clips). Remove the top and bottom bolts (the 2 middle bolts don't need to be removed). Next grab the lens assembly from the top and bottom and gently pull away from the body. Once the lens is separated from the vehicle simply twist the bulb socket counterclockwise to remove the bulb from the lens assembly.

Trying to replace the fob light bulb on drivers side


You can gain access to the fog light by removing the screw and clip from the front portion of the fender liner of the wheel well. I believe on that model you may have to remove the fog light to get to the bulb. It is held in by a couple bolts through the bumper from the back side.

Hello tbyers006: My name is Roger and I will help you. According to what the shop manuals show. Your vehicle has a 3.5 V-6 engine. This motor does not have a timing belt.

2003 Toyota Sienna - Need to replace left rear brake light


Hi -
I just replaced my left rear brake light on my 2005 Sienna. I followed the manual directions and removed the two metal bolts from the tail light cover. However the assembly did not come off. I could open it a little and it appeared to be bolted from the inside. I looked online but didn't find an answer. I had already gotten pulled over and I didn't want to go to the dealer so I pulled on the assembly a little harder applying even pressure to the top and the bottom and it popped loose. I didn't yank it. There are two metal pegs that have a little lip on them and thats where you are getting the resistance. Hope this helps.
