Yes, remove the two screws, and firmly yet carefully pull the taillamp assembly back out of the quarter panel. Once you have the taillamp out of the body and in hand, the sockets (on the back of taillamp) must be rotated to remove them from the lens. If memory serves, they must be rotated counter clockwise to release the socket from the lens housing, however, they will ONLY turn one way. plug your bulb into the socket and reverse the process. will only take about 5 minutes.

Replace brake light on my 2002 Honda Oddesey passenger side


Open the rear hatch and remove the two taillight mounting screws. These screws are located behind two plastic flaps that are flush fitting and part of the tail light housing. You will need a small flat blade screwdriver to put under the edge of the flap nearest the light. Pry gently (but persistently) and the flap will open to reveal the screw head underneath. (The hinge of the flap is on the side nearest the hatch opening.) Remove the screws with a phillips head screwdriver or an 8mm socket. Now comes the tricky part. Wiggle/pry the taillight housing as straight back as you can. Keep pulling/wiggling until the forward clip releases. Once it does you will be able to access the bulbs by rotating the bulb holders counterclockwise. Pull the bulb straight up out of its socket. Replace with the new bulb. Note how the forward spear point clip fits into its socket at the forward outboard edge of the housing. Fit the clip and push forward on the housing until you can hear the clip snap into place. Replace the screws and fold back the flaps. You're done.

Stop light out


For the brake light open the rear hatch and check beside the tail light. I believe ther is 2 phillips head screws right where the light meets the rear hatch on the body panel. remove them and gently yet firmly pull the lens assembly from the corner of the rear body panel. Squeeze the clips on the back of the socket and twist to remove the socket from the lens. Push gently on the bulb and turn carefully to remove light from the socket replace the light and reverse removal procedure to install.
