Question about 2005 Acura TL
How do I replace a broken tail light?
If it's a tail light housing that broke, and not the bulb that simply burnt out, i'm afraid your solution isn't that simple. you have to at least loosen the bumper on the side that the tail light need be replaced. which will include removing the mud flap on that side of the car, removing all the clips on the bottom of the bumper, and removing the two bolts behind the quarter sized plastic covers just inside the trunk lid.

You have to open the trunk and remove the carpet from the inside and you will see the bolts from the backside holding the light on. Remove these nuts and slowly pull the light out and you will see that the bulbs are being held in. You have to turn the lights counter clockwise and pull the lights out of the taillight. Jus push replace with new light and do the steps in reverse to put back on! Enjoy
