I have a 1995 Escort and in mine, in addition to that little screw, there are plastic "peg" type things that hold it in from the back (or behind the light - trunkside). That star screw actually does not HAVE to come out actually. I think the dealer just wanted us to almost have to bring it in for silly things like changing a lamp. Things that make you go HMMMMMM. :)

Good luck.

Replace rt side (psg) front headlaight assembly, for a 97 cadilac deville.


pull upward on black cover above headlamp assy. (marked pull here for headlamp service) you will then see on the front side a large bolt above the lamp assembly that holds it to the front of the car. it is a 10MM socket you will then need to remove a similar bolt on the top and bottom on the center front of the car where the assembly bolts up to the sheet metal. on the corner near the cornering lamp is a star shaped head bolt. (looks like star of david) you will need another small metric socket to remove this. this will free up the cornering lamp from the headlamp assembly. gently pull forward and away from headlamp assembly. remove both light pig tails by gently twisting on pigtails. you will then see 2 nuts which are also 10mm remove these and gently pull forward on entire headlamp assembly. you will need needle nose pliers to compress the head of plastic retaining tabs on headlight and signal light pig tails where they are held into the headlamp assembly. gently twist hi-low beam sockets free of the headlamp assembly then do like wise with the signal lamps. to install reverse procedure as above. note: the side with the cornering lamp has a tab that must fit back into tab-hole in front sheet metal of the front fender.

I need to change the brake light but can't figure out how to get the cover off and it is not in the manual. Do you know how to get to the bulb to change it?


Most 3rd brake light covers are held on with 2 plastic screws located on the sides, or the cover is just a push fit, easily pried off with a thin blade such as a putty knife screw drivers sceatch it up badly

Hi

Open rear hatch,
locate 3 philips screws on the right side of lamp,
note that the lamp assembly is held into the fender side by a plastic tab( hidden ). You have to stand at the rear fender side, facing the lamp and pull the lamp toward you carefully.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Replace rear brake shoes on 1999 nissan altima and now the drum will not fit back on.


if the orginal drums there might be a lip of rust and metal buildup that needs to be cleaned off. try also backing the adjuster off to allow the drum to go over the shoes, do the shoes look the same as the old ones, just more materal? Don't forget to adjust the shoes back to the drum so you gte a good pedal feel, and the rear brakes will work properly

How do you change the tail light in a 2003 Audi TT?


There is a flap in the boot that you need to flip open. Once opened, there are two screws with really big round ends as big as 1.5 - 2 centimeters in diameter. One is black on the lower end of the light and the other is white which is on the upper end of the lamp. You may need a tourch to see them better, however you can not miss them. Unscrew them with your fingers by twisting these anti clockwise. You need to hold the lamp as as soon as these 2 screws are released, the lamp will then be held by a wire connector which you can remove. You then need a star head screw driver to open 2 screws which will allow you to remove the bulbs that are deffective and have them replaced. Then just retrace your steps.

How to access brake tail light to change


Tail light replacement is not as hard as it seems.
Tools needed:flat head screwdriver and a deep 5/32 socket(a pair of pliers will work).
Step 1: open trunk and pull back truck liner at tail light.There is a small button clip on liner.Use screwdriver to pop up the center of button clip,pull clip out of hole.
Step 2:You will see a black wire attached to the body of car with 2 white clips.Use screwdriver to pop clips off of studs.
Step 3:Remove the nuts from the studs and pull tail light assembly straight back away from car.The outer side of the light just snaps in and out of place.
Step 4:Turn light socket counter clockwise 1/3 turn and pull out.
Step 5:Pull bad bulb straight out and replace.Reverse steps to reassemble.
