Unscrew the knob behined the light in the Boot / Trunk and the use a small screwdriver on the OUTSIDE of the light on the right handside as you look at the light in the middle on the outside. You will feel a little spring clip and as you push gently the light will pullout forward.

You have to pry open the carpet to exposed the assembly. Use a 10mm socket to removed the two nuts that hold the housing from the body. Once you get that done, you open the compartment and removed the bulb. Replaced and proceed the same way you removed it in reversed order.

Ford freestyle sel 2005 brake lights not working, the turn signals go faster then normal inside the vehicle, as far as i know the blinkers in back don't work either. looked at the fuse box and seems...


Generally when the turn indicators blinks really fast it means that the bulb has burnt out and needs replacing. I believe that they are dual filament bulbs in the back meaning that the stop/turn/park light are all in one bulb. In order to gain access to the bulbs you'll need to remove the tail light assembly. You will have to open the rear hatch and on the bottom by the taillight you should see two screws. Remove these screws and pull the taillight out and disconnect the electrical connectors. Next you will have to remove the socket. To do this just turn it,counter-clockwise I believe, slightly and it should pop right out. Replace the bulb and reinstall and you should be all set. I hope this helps you out.

How to change a rear turn signal lamp on a 2005 dodge caravan


I am including a couple of illustrations to better help with this replacement.
You will first need toe open the tail gate. then next to the tail light on the inside edge where the tail gate meets the seal you will see to plastic screw covers ( if still there) or two screws. You will need to remove these two screws , once removed the tail light will come out by lightly pulling outwards. Then simply depress the thumb clip on the bulb holder and remove.

Replace rear tail light bulb on a 2005 nissan maxima


Open the trunk, from the inside remove the side trunk liner (by removing the plastic tabs the liner can be pulled back). Once the liner is pulled back you will need to remove two nuts which secure the tail light in place. Once the two nuts are removed you can start pulling the whole tail light assembly out. There are two other tabs that secure the tail light in place which may give you some resistance but the light should come out without too much force once the two nuts are removed.
Once the tail light is out you can change whatever bulbs you need to.

If you put the tail gate down, there is 2 screw (phillips) that holds the tail light in place. Remove them & you can twist the bulb out. Thats it, put back together in reverse. Hope this helps.
