Problem has been solved. I very gently pulled on both ends of the lens assembly and it popped off. The white plastic pieces housed plastic attachment 'tabs'. They can snap right back in place once pulled out to put assembly back.

SOURCE: tail light bulb out

If you are still interested I figured it out this morning.

1. Remove the obvious 2 rear screws.
2. With a padded or rubber tipped flat tool gently pull towards the side of the car and pry off.
(I used a butter knife and cloth between it and the car)

There are 2 rods that insert into receivers on the side of the car. The real trick is that it does not pull off towards the rear as you would expect, it pulls off to the side.

If you still have trouble post here and I'll put up a demo video.

Can I just replace the third brake light bulb only ..just the bulb.on a 2005 Chevy Malibu LS.or do I have to replace the hole brake light itself..


from inside the trunk looking up at the light First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits. (The screws are permanently attached to the lens housing so will not drop into obscurity when the nuts are removed). After removing the nuts, GENTLY work the lens housing away from the car. You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.

You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.

Just reverse these directions to reassemble the housing.

Mazda 5 SUV/van brake light assembly replacement


This is easy and takes maybe ten minutes. You need a phillips screwdriver and a pair of pliers. Open the hatch and remove two screws at the back of the brake light assembly. Pull the light assembly hard straight backward until the little pop-clip holding the front end of the light lets go. (This is the hard part, because there aren't any great places to grip the light and the front end pop-clip is stubborn.) Then unscrew the bulbs from the broken assembly (don't touch the bulbs or the slight oil from your fingers will make them explode when they heat up - use surgical gloves if you think you can't help handling the bulbs). Gently remove the wiring harness from the NEW light assembly and discard it. Push the existing wiring harness into place in the new assembly and screw the bulbs in. Line up the assembly's pop-clip to the front end screw that it pushes onto, and push hard from the back until it pops on. Have a helper lean into the light from the side to line up the two screw holes at the back, and put the screws back in. Use a pair of pliers to unclip the rear baffle from the broken light (two clips), then pop the baffle onto the new light.

How do you change rear windshield brake light bulb in 1988 olds 88?


Hello there,

First of all, it isn't all that easy or quick. First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits. (The screws are permanently attached to the lens housing so will not drop into obscurity when the nuts are removed). After removing the nuts, GENTLY work the lens housing away from the car. You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.

You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.

Best of luck.

How do you remove headlight bulb on mercedes 1997 sl? Have already opened the plastic cover, unplugged electrical wires, unscrewed collar. How does the bulb come out?


all you have to do is pull at this point. sometimes they get a little "stuck" in there so move up and down until the bulb comes loose. be sure not to touch the new bulb with bare fingers. if you can, get latex gloves to do this. simply install the new one reversing all the steps you already told me. cheers

Having trouble accessing headlight assembly to change a burned out bulb removed 5 screws and clips but still seems to be held on place


You shouldn't have to remove any screws. Look behind the headlight assembly and you will see a socket that you push in, turn and it should come out so you can replace this little light bulb, not the whole assembly.

Good Luck

How do I replace the turn signal bulb on my 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee? It seems like I must remove alot of the front end to get at the bulb... is this true?


For the front turn signal:

There are two ways to get at the bulb.

Way 1) YOU NEED A SKINNY SHAFTED STAR SCREWDRIVER. This is how the manual describes it: Unscrew the 2 star screws holding the parking light housing on. One is on top, the other is between the parking light and the turn signal. This second screw can be very difficult to get to because the parking light and turn signal housing are very close. After the parking light housing is off, you can unscrew the turn signal housing. The screws should be located on top of the housing, underneath the parking light housing.

Way 2) This is the way I did mine: First, you have to take the headlight housing off. It should be pretty easy to pop off if you pry it the right way. It is held on by 1 square clip and 2 ball and socket clips. There is a small risk of breaking the ball and socket clips, as getting the headlamp housing off does require a little force, so be careful. You may want to take the headlight bulb out first, but isn't necessary. (Removing the right side bulb may require removing the battery) Once the headlamp housing is off, the turn signal bulbs should be very easy to get to.

To remove the bulb, simply turn the bulb socket and it will come out.


For the rear turn signal:


Open the lift gate.

There are 3 hex screws that hold each rear light assembly on. I'd recommend a hex screwdriver, as a socket wrench or box wrench would be very hard to use on the screws. Once the hex screws are off, just tug on the light assembly and it will come off. The bulbs are very easy to get to. The turn signal is the yellow one.

How do you change the low-beam light bulb on Subaru Tribeca? Cant get the headlight assembly out. Have taken the two screws out, but something else holding lower corner.


I just had to do this and learned the hard way.

First take the battery out.
Second remove the plastic cap covering the low beam bulb
Thirdly there are 2 screws holding a wire tension spring against the bulb. Losen the screw towards the outside of the car (Don't touch the screw closest to the engin).

Once you do this, the bulb will come out and you can replace it.

How do I change the headlamp BULB on a 2000 Hyundai Sonata


Open the hood, Look at where a long cable goes into the headlamp. There should be 3 screws holding the bulb in place. Take out the screws. The bottom screw might be hard to find but it is under the cable where the cable attaches to the headlamp. Once the screws are out, the bulb will come out of the headlamp still attached to the cable. The cable has a black covering around it. There is a plastic notch just above the bulb. Press it. It was a little hard to find. While you press the plastic notch, pull the bulb side (don't grab onto the bulb head itself, but just a little past the bulb) and the cable side apart. They are pretty tight, so you will have to pull hard. When the bulb side comes off the cable side, the cable will reveal a three-prong outlet. The bulb side will have three prongs that plug into the cable. At this point, bulb and cable are completely detached. Now, throw the bulb away, and go and buy a new one (10 bucks). PLug it into the cable, and then rescrew the whole thing (only 3 screws here) back into the set. Hope this helps. Only takes a few minutes. you only had to loosen one screw (and that might not even be necessary). This allowed a spring to be released. The other 2 screws were for the reflector and a hold-down tab for the spring. Simply release the spring from under the hold-down tab. An important addition worth adding to this procedure is "DO NOT TO TOUCH THE GLASS" on the new bulb. Wear clean gloves or use clean shop towels. The oil/ sweat etc. from your skin will greatly shorten the life of the bulb.
