The rear side lights are held in place by screw/bolts that are accessed by opening the rear tail gate. They are on the inside near the edge. Usually a black 10mm bolt with a Philips "+" head. There are 2. Remove the and the light will come out as the full assembly. The cover is part of the light assemble and not be replaced.If it is cracked or broken the whole lamp assembly will need the be replaced.
I had this message sent to me to solve....THIS IS MY QUESTION THAT I ASKED....LOL....SINCE THEN; I'VE BEEN INFORMED THAT YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE OUTSIDE TAIL-LIGHTS TO GET TO THE MARKERS
DOES ANYONE ELSE KNOW ANOTHER WAY?
I have stainless steel covers over my tail-lights and will have to remove the "adhesive" on the covers to remove the tail-lights...HELP!
Open the trunk and along the bottom of the tail light, there should be a Philips screw securing a cover piece. (your car may or may not have this piece) With the cover off, there will be another 2 screws securing the bottom of the tail light assembly. Remove the screws and pull the bottom out and the top is held in by two retainers that should just slide right out
1. Open the tailgate.
2. Look closely at the side of the brake light cover where it is closest to the tailgate. It is black plastic.
3. You will see two roundish looking outlines in the black plastic (not
the two outlines in the plastic that is the same color as your van).
There is just enough of a crack to slide a small screwdriver into the
4. Pop the little plastic "doors" up to reveal 10mm nuts with Philips heads.
5. Remove the bolt/screw from each of the two holes. The tail light cover will be loose, but it will not come out yet.
6. Find something small to pry with. It should be plastic or you might scratch your paint.
7. On the side of the van where the tail light cover is flush
(the far opposite end of where the bolts were), push a small tool
(screwdriver?) under the edge of the cover and pry straight up. There
is a peg that fits snugly into a hole in the van. The peg is attached
to the tail light cover. With a small flashlight, you should be able to
see the peg after prying it up just a little. The peg will pop out and
that will allow you to change the bulb.
8. To replace the cover, start by popping the peg back into the
hole, then replace the two screws. Finish by snapping the screw covers
Most of the time you can simply remove the tail light assembly from the car pretty easy and just a few screws. If it sdoes not have the screws going through the front of the housing then its rear mount and must be done by lifting the tailgate to get access. Once in the vehicle you should beable to remove the plastic housing covering up the assembly from the inside. Remove the 3-4 screws or bolts and the tail light assembly. Install the new one just the reverse. Pretty easy just take your time.
remove the trim panel at the very rear of trunk, remove it and place it out of the way, remove tail light Assemblyretaining nuts top and bottom, I think there are 6 per side, pull the tail light assembly straight back to access the bulbs for replacement.
