Open the full hatch.
Pull down the weather strip near the rear dome light.
There should be a wire with a connector in it. Disconnect it
Close the full hatch.

Open just the window hatch. There is 1 screw on either side of the bulb housing.

Replacing brake light


Hi Edward-
The top brake light lens is held on with two size T25 Torx screws. You need a suitable size torx screw driver to remove (and again later replace the assembly) the two screws. Once the screws are removed (do not lose these), you can remove the entire lens assembly. You'll see the wires leading to the plastic bulb socket. The bulb socket twists off the assembly like a bayonet. Once the bulb socket is off, you'll be able to remove the bulb simply by pulling it straight out. Replace the bad bulb by inserting the new bulb and then reassemble your third brake light in the reverse order you removed it. Enjoy!

replace the bulb...??? This requires you remove the rear package deck (to access the bulb & socket). to do this, remove the seat bottom (two bolts hold the rear seat bottom to the chassis, then remove the bolts which hold the shoulder cushions (LH & RH - 12mm bolts) then remove the cosmetic molding around the trunk access (7 to 8 screws) then remove the "C" pillar covers (SRS curtain airbag LH & RH) to access the rear deck package & access the third brake lamp bulb. replace it, then reassemble.

Change brake light '04 Trailblazer


Hi this is a common problem in the trailblazer line the light brakes stop working on mine but it was really not the bulbs it was the socket I got a recall from Chevrolet to replace all the back lights with a new set but this did not fix the problem what happen is that the socket is not making a good connection with the bulb wires take one bulb out and you will see how the wires are black you can tell they got hot because they are not making a good connection and brake light stop working and to take then out open the rear gate and you will see the 2 screws for the tail light assembly once you get the assembly out you will see a 2 plastic connectors remove then and another 3 screws holding the light bulbs take those 3 screws out and then you can get to the light bulbs what I did to fix this problem I bend the wires in the bulb just a bit to make a better connection and avoid then to get hot once you get a bulb out of the socket you will be able to know better what I am talking about
