After removing the two screws, you have to grab both sides of the tail light housing and wiggle the housing out by rocking it left and right while GENTLY pulling it away from your body. You absolutely MUST be careful when doing this because if you use excessive force, you risk cracking the housing and even damaging the wiring.

I have already chipped the corner on BOTH of my housings when attempting to remove them. I had to super glue the pieces back on. It was not a happy moment.

07+ lancers you must remove the trunk side liners to remove the tail lights. its a pain in the but because you have to fold down the back seat then remove the liner. If you have a de model you should remove the back seat or you might damage the liner pulling it out.

How do you replace the driver's side tail light on


You will first have to access the trunk and then access the tailight assembly - possibly by removing the upholstery of the molding (not too difficult). The bulb housing can be removed by rotating approximately 90-degrees counterclockwise and pulling the assembly. Simply pull the bulb straight out and insert the new bulb. Be sure to test it before reassembling the unit. Finally, reverse the steps.

There should be some thumb screws behind the trunk liner you can remove and the tail light unit will slide out to expose the bulb sockets.

Replacement of rear outside tail light assembly


If you're asking how do you change a taillight bulb, then follow this procedure:

Open the trunk lid.

Disconnect the connectors from the taillights (taillight bulb connectors are visible by looking inside the trunk at the back of the tail lamps.) There may be an interior trunk trim panel that you have to take off but in most cases its just a series of thumb screws that hold them in.


Brake Lights/Taillights: 21/5 W

Rear Turn Signal Light: 21 W

Back-up Light: 21 W

Rear Side Marker Light: 5 W


Turn the bulb sockets 45 º counterclockwise to remove the bulbs.


If you're removing the taillamps with the bumper off there are 3 nuts and screws that hold the taillight to the rear panel of the car that have to come off from the inside of the trunk.
Remove the nuts and screws, then remove the taillight.

hope that answers your question

Tail light is out. have the replacement just confused on how to put it in.


Open the trunk and take the two screws out near the trunk seal as well as the turn thingy in the trunk behind the light. Then you have to pull the entire tail light assembly off. After you do that just twist out the bulb.
