The tail lamp housing is secured to the vehicle by two fasteners and a tab/hook. To remove the fasteners, use a flat blade screwdriver to pry up the head of the fastener, then remove the fastener. Next pivot the tail lamp away from the vehicle to disengage the hook from the rubber body grommet. Disconnect the wire harness by disengaging the connector lock and then the connector release tab.

As a disclaimer, you should disconnect the battery before attempting any electrical repairs....

Hope this helps...

2000 Acura 3.5 RL suddenly has no tail lights or tag lights. Brake, reverse and blinker all work. Checked fuses-all appear fine. Decided to replace bulbs and noticed front right marker light out so changed...


The only thing that both the brake lights and tail lights use is a ground connection. Keep in mind the warning light on the dash may be for any exterior lamp. You may need to check the sockets and grounds on all four corners of the car.

How do I change the passenger tail light bulb on my 2006 mitsubishi galant?


  • For the tail light you first need to remove the brake light that is part of that assembly.
  • Open the trunk.
  • Inside of the trunk is some matting you need to pull down a bit.
  • You may need to remove a net first.
  • Once you pull the matting/carpet down you will see some plastic wing nuts around the are of the brake/tail light.
  • Remove them.
  • Now wiggle the brake light out
  • Now wiggle the tail light out.
  • Twist the socket to the bulb that is bad out.
  • The bulb just pulls strait out.
  • Revers to complete.


  • Thank you for using FixYa.

I need to change the brake and tail light on my 1996 toyota corolla . I would need a manuel on that please.


The steps to replace the brake light bulb on a 1996 Toyota Corolla:

The bulb needed is type 1157. After opening the trunk you need to remove the trunk liner on the side (right side for this example)where the brake light bulb is out. The plastic capture grommets hold the liner in place. Once the grommets are removed there is a nut (10mm) that is a bright brass-like color. This needs to be removed. Then on the outside of the trunk on the tail-light lens left side there are two nuts black in color (10mm) they need to be removed. Now the fun starts .... you needto slide the whole assembly back. You will note two black plastic posts on the rear quarter-panel, do not remove these ... these are used to hold the tail-light assembly in place since on the inside of the tail light assembly there are two rod-like protrusions that slide into these brackets. So.... remove the screws and wiggle the assembly back and it "should" slide back so that you can get at the bulb socket hat you twist to remove from the assembly. Now the bulb is visible and you reverse the order of steps to get it all back together .... a miserable design!

Need to change right tail light, how?


Open hatch, on inside there will be two plastic clips that go into the side of the tail light, remove the center of the plastic clips, they will pop out, remove the rest of the remaining clip, once you have the plastic clips out, tail light will come off, no screw's holding tail light, just those two plastic clips.

The right tail and brake light doesn't work but the left one do. bulbs has been changed it's not them


Have someone pull the bulb, and check for 12 volts as you press brake pedal, if no voltage, check the harness, make sure nothing in the trunk has interfered with the wiring.

1. Open the trunk and remove the taillight cover by turning the knob.
2. Determine which of the two bulbs is burned out: tail/stoplight or turn
signal.
3. Remove the socket by turning it one-quarter turn counterclockwise.
4. Remove the burned out bulb from the socket by pulling it straight out of its socket.
5. Install the new bulb in the socket.
6. Reinstall the socket into the light assembly.

How to change the tail light the plastic case wont come out


From inside the bed, remove the bolts behind the tail light. The light should pull out. It may need the encouragement of a stronger pull, as there are plastic alignment studs that slide into holes in the sheet metal that sometimes get hung.

A little extra pull after you are sure all of the bolts are out will do the trick.

Hoe do you change a brake light on a 2001 volkswagen beetle?


IT'S A BIT MORE COMPLICATED THAN ABOVE.
TO REMOVE BRAKE LIGHT HOUSING YOU HAVE TO GO INTO THE TRUNK AND REMOVE AN OVAL PLASTIC COVER NEAR WHERE THE TAIL LIGHT IS. REACH IN AND FEEL FOR A KNOB (FEELS LIKE AN OUTDOOR SPIGOT KNOB). TURN IT UNTIL IT COMES OFF. REMOVE ENTIRE TAIL LIGHT CASING. YOU'LL BE ABLE TO COMPLETELY REMOVE THE HOUSING BY PUSHING FROM INSIDE OUT. DISCONNECT THE WIRE. CHANGE BULB, REVERSE PROCEDURE.
GOOD LUCK.
