Re: How do I replace a Tail Light on a 2002 Honda CRV
Pretty simple just remove the light fixture then you just have to remove the bulbs from the fixture and wire assembly remains intact then just fit the same bulbs in to the new light fixture without removing the wire assembly.

Four of them ?
Remove the tail lamp housing to body screws. Carefully slide the tail lamp housing rearward away from vehicle. Disconnect the tail lamp housing electrical connector. Remove the tail lamp housing from the vehicle.
I had this problem with my 2007 Honda CRV -- all the lights worked EXCEPT the tail/running lights and the license plate light. The other tail lights worked -- brake, reverse, indicators, and hazards. Front headlights also worked, but when the headlights went on the back tail lights did not (not to safe for driving at night!!) The fuse was #15 in the interior fuse box (under the dash driver side) with the label "small exterior lights" ( also check fuse #19 labeled "small lights main"). The cause of my problem, I believe, is a bad or lose wire in my license plate light.
check for loose negative wire on battery terminal, tighten if loose,
check your ignition switch, the accesories wire (positive) if loose/ re-connect it.
check for loose accesories harness wire- repair if nescessary.
THE EASIEST WAY TO FIGURE OUT WHICH WIRE DOES WHAT IS TO USE A TEST LIGHT . ATTACH A TEST LIGHT TO A MATEL SURFACE NEAR THE TAIL LIGHTS, THEN REMOVE YOUR DIRECTIONAL BULB, TURN ON YOUR DIRECTIONAL AND CAREFULLU TOUCH THE TESTLIGHT TO ONE OF THE TWO CONTACTS IN THE RECEPTICLE THEN WRITE DOWN THE COLOR OF THE COROSPONDING WIRE THAT TRIGGERS THE LIGHT.
looked thru manual and there is nothing I can find. I'm sure it's a twist lock fixture. I've had mine out a few times to change lamps but don't remember exactly. Look at it in very good light and you'll figure it out.
Open the rear hatch. There are two screws towards the inside. Unscrew these and remove the housing.Turn the bulb holder 1/8 turn counterclockwise and pull out. Push in on the bulb and turn it counterclockwise, then pull the bulb out of the holder. Replacement is exact reverse of removal.
