Question about Cars & Trucks
Not knowing the make, model or year or even if it is a car or truck makes for a very difficult solution! However, I will try....If this is the front of the vehicle (I assume it is because I see no red stop lights), you will need to access the light assembly from the back of the lights. If it is reachable from the engine compartment you should remove all of the bulb sockets first and then proceed to see what is holding the assembly....if it is not accessible from there, then you need to jack the vehicle onto jack stands and get down and dirty from under the fender area...

These can be a "bugger"... Once you have the 2 screws out, I usually get a small screwdriver wrapped in a rag between the lamp and the quarter panel (on the side of the vehicle) and gently pry the lamp straight towards the back. You might think that something is going to break and just when you think it will for sure, it will pop loose and the lamp will be in your hands, so be ready to catch it.

I had the HARDEST time with the lights...I never realized changing a bulb would be so difficult. Once you unscrew what you need to, go into the trunk and pull the lining away from the back part of the light. There are the white prongs that you will need to tap with a hammer until they pop out and then the light assembly will come out. Be careful though, I got a little too impatient and broke mine. I used a binding agent to hold it back in place though...GOOD LUCK!

there is a clip holding the back, it is a push in clip, the screws hold the light assembly in position, so does the clip, so when you remove the screws you will still have to pull the light out of the clip, you should be able to pull it out with out damaging the clip and reinstall it with out damage as well. hope this helps, let me know

open the hood, and look at the top of the headlight assembly. There should be a couple of L-shaped pins sticking down through it. Some had two, some only had one, so adjust as necessary. Pull the pins, and remove the headlight. As for the turn signal, there should be a plastic clip that holds it on, that you have to push on in order for it to release. When you get it released, you should be able to pull it away from the body.
