Open the rear hatch and remove the two taillight mounting screws. These screws are located behind two plastic flaps that are flush fitting and part of the tail light housing. You will need a small flat blade screwdriver to put under the edge of the flap nearest the light. Pry gently (but persistently) and the flap will open to reveal the screw head underneath. (The hinge of the flap is on the side nearest the hatch opening.) Remove the screws with a phillips head screwdriver or an 8mm socket. Now comes the tricky part. Wiggle/pry the taillight housing as straight back as you can. Keep pulling/wiggling until the forward clip releases. Once it does you will be able to access the bulbs by rotating the bulb holders counterclockwise. Pull the bulb straight up out of its socket. Replace with the new bulb. Note how the forward spear point clip fits into its socket at the forward outboard edge of the housing. Fit the clip and push forward on the housing until you can hear the clip snap into place. Replace the screws and fold back the flaps. You're done.

Passenger side headlight has blown 3 new bulbs, should i replace the fuse? or Check the connectors?


Check the connector contacts for a short circuit, with a tester. Make sure that you are replacing the proper type of bulb. Inspect the lens for fogginess. It might seem odd, but overfilling the coolant water, will spill out of the top of the bottle as spray and vapor. This liquid somehow finds its way unto the passenger side bulb connector, and into the lens, causing temporary fogginess and possibly a short in the connector. It happened to me.

How to replace license plate light on a 2002 buick lesabre


Hi. Remove the retaining screws from the license plate light assembly with a Phillips screwdriver. There are two screws on each side of the lens assembly.

Pull the light assembly cover down out of the way to gain access to the bulbs. Twist the bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly and pull it straight out. Pull the bulb out of the socket.

Push the new bulb straight into the socket. Replace the bulb and socket inside the light assembly and turn it clockwise to secure it.

Replace the assembly cover and secure it with the retaining screws. Tighten the screws with a Phillips screwdriver. Turn on the lights to test your new bulbs.
Take care

2002 Toyota highlander passenger brake light not working


RE: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2.4cyl. 4X4 Base Model

I am a Certified Technician and have basic knowledge with electronics in electrical wiring. I searched the web and discovered this is a common problem.

I fixed the problem and it was a simple procedure... The problem is with the reverse light socket at the side with no brake light. This socket functions as a hub to direct current to the brake bulbs.

Remove reverse light socket and re-seat bulb. Check for loose or broken prongs. Replace if necessary.

Swap the reverse socket with the other side.

Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Before installing the lens, make sure the brake light operates properly by having an assistant depress the brake pedal.

Brake light out


If don't have screws(probably torques headed) in the lens then you have to take off interior panel and access bulb that way.
