Most of these type lights do not have a plug. I am assuming that you want to replace a burnt out lamp.

Here's what you do. Remove the assembtail lamp assembly. It is usually held on with 2 or 3 phillips head screws. If the problem is a burnt out lamp, the lamp assembly will unscrew from the unit by turning it counterclockwise about a quarter turn. Take the bad bulb to an auto parts store and get a replacement. The bulb will only fit one way into its socket. Then take the socket with the new bulb and insert it back in the housing. Again it will only fit one way. remount the tail light assembly.

If the actual plastic tail light assembly is broken or cracked remove the lamp assembly as described above, take the broken tail light to a dealer and ghet a new one. They are expensive. I just replaced one for my 95 F-150 pickup and it was $40.

Left rear tail light not working on 2001 dodge stratus


If that's the only light not working, the bulb probably needs to be replaced. To get the lamp housing out so you can change the bulb, open the trunk and pull back the liner on the left rear side - there are usually a couple of plastic fasteners that need to be removed to pull back the liner. You should now be able to see two or three fasteners (plastic or metal) that hold the lamp assembly to the body. Remove these and pull the lamp assembly out to the rear. Remove the bulb holders from the lamp assembly by twisting them a quarter turn counter clockwise, then remove and replace the non-functioning bulb. Reverse to reassemble.

License plate bulb replacement on a 2002 Buick LeSabre I don't have screws holding the bulb assembly in place. It appears to be in place with tabs larger than the assembly holding the assembly in...


Hi, my name is John I will do my best to assist you.

The entire tail/backup lens assembly has to be removed from the trunk lid as shown in the drawing attached. There will most likely be some nut's or clip's on the assemblies mounting pins on the inside of the trunk lid.
  1. Disconnect the tail/back up lamp harness connector from the body wiring harness.
  2. Remove the tail/back up lamp assembly from the rear compartment lid.
  3. While supporting the tail/back up lamp assembly, unplug the tail/back up lamp harness grommet from the rear compartment lid and remove the tail/back up lamp from the vehicle.
  4. Remove the license plate lamp bulb from the lamp housing.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Replace rear tail light on ford focus wagon 2000


http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you_replace_the_tail_light_assembly_on_a_2000_Ford_Focus_SE_Station_Wagon

abar_a.gif?v=77611 Remove two screws and rotate to the side

To remove the rear light assembly for access to turn signals and brake lights:
1) Open the trunk to expose two screws.
2) Remove these two screws.
3) There are two brackets still holding the housing onto the car. Do NOT pull up and do NOT pull up on the housing; you will break the plastic pegs on the lamp housing.

4) Referring to the driver side lamp housing and facing the back of the car:

a) You can see these pegs and brackets on your left hand side if you pull the light housing GENTLY outward. The pegs are pointing into the vehicle from the left side of the car and stick into holes. There is also a spring bracket holding the housing on where the screws are.

b) To remove the housing from the brackets, push/pull the right side of the lamp housing outward and to the left. Do this carefully so that you do not break any of the plastic pegs. What you are looking to do is detach the housing from the spring bracket, and then push/pull the pegs from their holes. You are simply rotating the lamp housing out of the brackets.

Simply mirror instructions for removal of passenger side housing.

Replacement:
This part is a little easier. Line the pegs up with the holes, and then push gently to line up spring bracket with it's hole. Then, push with a little force to get the spring in the hole. Make sure the pegs are in their holes or else it will be crooked and loose.


Take your time! You do not want to break the plastic. It should eventually come loose. With any plastic on your vehicle, be careful not to force it. Good luck!

I can't seem to get the tail light off to change the bulb, how do I do this


Open the rear tailgate and remove the two screws that hold the tail lamp assembly in place.Now there are two alignment pins that hold the lamp in place, you must use a screwdriver or other flat device and lightly pry the lamp your working on. If you are removing the rear left (driver side) then pry back outward to the left. Alternately, if you are removing the right rear tail light, pry outward to the right. Do not try and pull directly back. The pins will prevent the light from coming out. You have to pull left or right, depending on the light your removing. Good luck.
