You should be able to just slide the light out, after you have removed the 3 nuts holding the light in place. Twist the sockets out, change the bulbs, and you should be golden.

SOURCE: replace tail light bulb

The process for changing the tail light bulbs for a 2002 New Beetle in my case a TDI is relatively simple. To remove the lense and gain access to the bulbs you first need to release the lense holder from inside the trunk by completely unscrewing the large plastic wing nut that is under a round plastic panel that's located almost directly behind the rear brake light lense. To gain access to the plastic wing nut remove the round panel by gently prying it off. After this is done you release the lense by using something flat like a dinner table knife to pry and release the clip that holds the lense in place. Locating the clip: The rear fender has two seams that end at the light lense, the inboard seam (the one closest to the hatch)is where you want to insert the table knife to pry the metal clip that holds the lens in place. Gently and carefully insert the knife blade directly at the seam and pry upward to release the lense. Once the clip releases pull the lens the rest of the way and remove the bulbs by turning the bulb holder sockets couter-clockwise. After this is done remove bulbs by slightly pushing down on the bulb and turning it counter-clockwise. The reinstall is reverse of the removal the procedure.When re-installing take care to clock the lense where the metal clip and the lense protrusions end up in the same position as before. Note: you may need to assist sliding the lens retaining clip in with the knife when reinstalling! Good luck

SOURCE: 2005 Subaru Outback XT - Real Tail light- bulb replacement

1. Open the rear hatch, and look down towards the bumper, in the direction of the tail light bulb needing replacement.
2. You should see the dark colored plastic trim piece, which is held in place by two small plastic body style philips head screws.
3. These wil only 'loosen' a little bit, you will need to slip a fingernail or some other slim item, underneath the heads of each of the screws, and pull back on them firmly by grasping the body of the screw, not the head (which is flimsy, and can crush if squeezed).
3. remove the plastic trim piece - it can be achieved by lifting out and towards you - set aside.
4. Using a 10mm socket or wrench, unscrew the upper and lower bolts holding the taillight assembly in place.
5. the taillight assembly is now loose - it can pulled rearwards, and will slide off of the small guide slots holding it in place.
6. The bulb is a twist lock style, underneath the tan cap- twist the cap counter-clockwise, and it will pop out. The bulb is a number 7440, for the running light/ brake light, and a 7443 for the turn signal. a 3757 will not fit through the cut out hole in the taillight assembly.
7. Re-assemble in reverse, making sure to check the function of the bulb PRIOR to re-assembly.
Good Luck.

Driver side tail light on 2005 suburu outback does not work at times


Try replacing both tail light bulbs with LED bulbs available at most auto parts supply stores. If screw in be sure to place a dot of anti-seize compound on the threads. LED bulbs more fault tolerant as they need considerably less amperage to illuminate.

to replace the GM tail light bulb, you will drop down the tail gate and you will notice 2 screws on the tail light assembly, you will remove those 2 screws with the proper screw driver, once you do that the whole tail light assembly will come off, then you will see onother 2 screws holding the light panel to the tail light assembly, or brackets holding the light panel to the tail light assembly remove either or and you will have access to the three bulbs on that light panel, replace the burnt one and follow the same intrunctions to put back.

Replace rear tail light bulb on a 2005 nissan maxima


Open the trunk, from the inside remove the side trunk liner (by removing the plastic tabs the liner can be pulled back). Once the liner is pulled back you will need to remove two nuts which secure the tail light in place. Once the two nuts are removed you can start pulling the whole tail light assembly out. There are two other tabs that secure the tail light in place which may give you some resistance but the light should come out without too much force once the two nuts are removed.
Once the tail light is out you can change whatever bulbs you need to.
