1. Remove the two small Phillips head screws holding the inside edge of the Taillight assy (you have to open the tailgate)
2. Pull straight back on the Taillight assy levering most of your pressure to the outside edge. (There is two peg like things [top and bottom of the
assy]stuck into a tight fitting hole in the body, so it will take some
effort, as they are pretty snug..but, they should eventually pop out)
(Put a dab of vasoline on the pegs before you stick them back in, this makes future entries easier)
3. Twist each lamp base 1/4 turn CCW and the lamp base/holder will come right out of the Taillight assy.
4. While grasping the bulb, Pull straight out from the base..Insert new Bulb. (Spray a little lubricating contact cleaner in the socket and on the bulb base, before you put the new bulb in.)
5. Add a little vinly/rubber spray protectant to the rubber gasket on the base.
6. Re-install Lamp and base into Taillight assy using a 1/4 turn CW twist of your wrist
7. Align the pegs on the Back of the Taillight assembly with the mating holes on the body.
8. Gently, but firmly smack the Taillight assy with the heel of your hand,to seat the pegs.
9. Re-install and tighten the two screws and go wipe off the finger prints and smudges from Taillight assy lens.
Unscrew the screws that are securing the brake light cover to the body of the Tundra. Pull the brake light cover off the body of the Tundra. Place the screws in the brake light cover and set it on the bed of the truck. Pull the burned-out light bulb out of the light fixture and discard it. Insert the new brake light bulb into the light fixture. Pump the Tundra's brakes to make sure the new bulb is working correctly. Replace the brake light cover on the body of the Tundra and replace the screws.
Open rear hatch. Remove two mounting screws at the side corner which mount the tail light assy to the body. The whole tail light assy can now be removed. Twist desired bulb holder counterclock wise to remove, then pull bulb to remove. Reinstall in reverse order.
serjoijr: To replace the bulb, you must remove the tail lamp housing.
Open the tailgate. There are two screws which retain the lamp housing to the body. You can see them when you open the tail gate, One is near the top and one is near the bottom. They are a phillips head type screw.
Remove both screws and pull the lamp housing directly backwards. DO NOT TWIST IT TO THE SIDE! The housing has a pin on the opposite side which interlocks with the body, keeping it in place on that side.
Once you have pulled the housing away from the body, you will see the lamp sockets and wiring harness. These sockets usually rotate to one side or another to interlock with the housing. Once the socket is removed, you can replace the bulb and return the housing back to the original spot.
According to the service manual, you must remove the cloth package tray that the third brake light assembly is attached to. First unclip the electrical connector located directly underneath in the trunk. Then remove the five philips screws securing the tray to the rear body by folding down the rear seatbacks. The package tray must then be pried off-not easy.
Th other post is incorrect, the 2004 has LED brake lights that are part of the tail light assembly. you have to replace the whole assy. There are two screws that hold the assy in, they are both covered by white cable clips. The clips just pull off and then you can use a 10mm wrench to remove the nuts on the screws. My brake light stopped working and during the removal, the LEDs started working again, hopefully you will find the same situation as the LEDs are supposed to last for years.
hi from uk to change the brake light bulb/s on the getz is easy just open rear hatch then you will see 3x pozi drive screws alongside each lamp assy that screw /secure the lamp to body at the lower endof drain channel? remove screws and lift away lamp from body each bulb is accessable then now would be a good opportunity to clean the area at rear of lamp ? then reassemble is reverse as above my wife has one of these cars and has been absalutely trouble free for past 5yrs but it does get lots of tlc/servicing by myself hope the instructions are ok to follow?
hi from uk not too sure on elantra but will try to help? if car is hatchback ? lift up hatch and look at the water drain channel alongside lamp? if there are 3x screws? unscrew and lift lamp off then unclup bulb/lamp board from lens bulbs are bayonet fitting if saloon then open boot look to rear of lamp in boot for either clip on panel or carpet covering lamp rear remove and look for some kind of nylon head screw bolt/s or 10 mm nuts? that my hold the lamp in place to body? or you may ?find the bulb/lamp board is simply a clip in to the lens assy as 1st example ? in that case just unclip and change bulb/s with no need to remove lens assy with a little patience you will succeed hope this helps
