Question about 1999 Buick Regal
My blinker on my tail lights of my buick regal 1999, have quit blinking. I have not figured out how to get to these lights for replacement or repair. Auto Zone person told me to go throught trunk and unscrew the four bolts in corner of trunk. There is no way that unscrewing these bolts will get me to the lights. I tried to get plastic tail light cover, on outside of rear, to come off, but it didn't seem to want to come off and I didn't want to break it. How do you get to the tail lights of this car?
On the Buick, your tail light lens are smooth with no screws accessable from the outside. So, open the trunk and you will see either cardboard or carpeted panels surroounding the trunk. Pull these away and you will see some plastic wingnuts (3-4 each side). Remove the wingnuts, and then pull the light towards the rear from the outside. Your wires and sockets will thrn be accessible. Usually depress the lock and give the socket a 1/4 turn and pull out. Replace the bulb, reinstall in the reverse order.
Hope this helps you.
