2008 grand prix rear turn signal bulb replacement. cant see how to get around the sheathing


Some of these are accessible through the trunk. There may be a piece of plastic or fabric behind the tail light assembly that can be emoved. Then usually the bulb and cable pugged into it are turned counter clockwise about a 1/2 turn to remove them.

Replace turn signal bulb


The procedure to replace the REAR turn signal light bulb is as follows:- 1) There are three wing nuts on the inside of the trunk for each tail light. 2) Remove the piece of plastic just inside the trunk where the latch is. 3)Then remove the two thumb screws that the cargo net is attached to and the piece can be pulled up. 4)Them pull the carpeting away from the area where the tail light is located. 5)properly remove the three thumb screws. 6) Keep the bulb handy so you can fit the new bulb as the old bulb is removed out. The procedure to replace the FRONT turn signal is as follows:-- 1) First remove the front headlight assembly.And the bulbs . 2) Open the hood to remove the headlight assembly. 3) Pull the headlamp assembly straight out from the vehicle (moving the headlamp up and down slightly may help to remove it easily). 4) Front turn signal is located below the headlamp assembly (turn/parking lamp on top and the fog lamp is below it). 5) Then turn the bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise to remove it from assembly. 6)Then pull the old bulb from the socket and replace it with a new one. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How do I change front blinker bulb on 2003 chev impala


First,
  1. Turn the engine off and open the hood. Pry up the two fasteners from the radiator air baffle with a flat head screwdriver. Move the baffle to the side to access the top of the headlight case.
  2. Step 2 Pull up the two metal rods behind the headlight case. These secure the case to the car. You may need your pliers to pull them up.
  3. Step 3 Gently pull the headlight case out to access its rear. On the rear, you will find several black dust covers. Twist off the dust cover closest to the fender (the outward dust cover) to access the turn signal bulb.
  4. Step 4 Turn the bulb module counterclockwise to release it. Unplug the electrical connector from the bulb module. Connect the new bulb to the electrical connector (don't touch the glass with your hands; hold it by the plastic piece). Insert the bulb module in the turn signal housing, turn it clockwise and screw the dust cover back on.
  5. Step 5 Insert the headlight case in the mount. Push the pins back down to secure it. Position the radiator baffle in its place and insert the fasteners.
  6. Rear Turn Signal Bulbs
  7. Step 1 Open the trunk. Remove the net from the side mounted wing nut (on the side with the faulty turn signal). Twist the wing nuts (there are two per side) counterclockwise to remove them.
  8. Step 2 Peel the carpet layer back to access the rear signal lamp wing nuts. Twist these wing nuts (two per side) counterclockwise to remove them and release the rear signal.
  9. Step 3 Carefully pull the rear signal assembly away from the Impala. The rear turn signal is the inner bulb (closest to the trunk). Press the tab on the bulb module and turn it counterclockwise to release it from the rear signal assembly.
  10. Step 4 Pull the old bulb straight off the module (don't twist). Insert the new bulb in the module. Depress the tab on the connection and insert the module back in the assembly. Twist it clockwise.
  11. Step 5 Insert the rear signal assembly. Re-attach the assembly's wing nuts and push the carpet layer back in place. Tighten the other two wing nuts to secure the carpet layer and reconnect the cargo net

2004 A4 Tail Light replacement.


If you are still looking for the resolution, it's really pretty simple. It is highly recommended that you remove one light assembly at a time, thus allowing you to have a good guide when repositioning the assembly back on the vehicle body. Yes, the only way to get to the burned out bulb in the taillight is to remove the whole darn thing! The bulb burns out every 4-5 months, so I have become good at it...Here goes:

1. Open trunk. Look for small (3" diameter) cutouts in the fabric panel in the trunk liner. They are identical and appear next to the taillight assemblies, on the side, not behind the taillight.
2. Gently use a flat blade screwdriver and pry them open. These cutouts are attached to the inner trunk liner fabric, so be gentle.
3. Notice the phillips head screw inside the opening. Unscrew it slowly, making sure it doesn't drop between the chassis and the trunk liner. Remove the screw.
4. Place soft towel on the outside of the car under the taillight assembly, to prevent scratching the car bumper.
5. Gently grab both sides of the taillight assembly from the outside and pull away from the car (rear direction. Be careful not to pull too hard, or the wiring harness behind the assembly may break.
6. You can now access all lamp in the taillight assembly. Change the bulbs as needed. Also, if you can vacuum or clean the dirt on the chassis as well as on the back side of the taillight assembly, you'll feel better later :-)
7. Placing the taillight assembly back in its place is a bit tricky. It seems to go back easily, but the rubber lining nearest to the trunk opening and where the phillips head screw is, must be placed exactly right or water will leak behind the assembly.
8. Screw in the phillips head screw, but don't overtighten it. You will need to open it every 4-5 months to replace another bulb (its an Audi-VW plan to sell more bulbs).
9. Snap the trunk liner caps back in place and voila, you have done it.
