There should be wing nuts on the backside in the rear body panel. You need to take the trim of the rt or left side you also may have to take the sill plate off for access.

How do I fix the brake light on a 1997 Buick LeSaber.


I just did a 97 Regal yesterday and yes you are correct...the strip must be removed to gain access...depending on model you may have to remove the cushioning panel (piece of upholstery panel) on the inside of trunk lid...follow this video URL as it explains the removal better in video form than written..basically remove the 7 10mm nuts holding panel on, lower trunk lid a little and wiggle panel off, twist socket and remove to gain bulb access..install is reverse procedure ...Regal, Century and LeSabre are all same idea/setup Tail Light Change 1997 2005 Buick Century 2004 Buick Century Custom 3 1L V6

How do i change the parking light bulb on a 2003 park avenue?


The entire licence plate and tail light assembly needs to be removed, then access to the bulbs is easy.

1. Pop the plastic snaps that hold the carpet to the trunk lid in order to see the studs that hold the assembly to the trunk lid.
2. Use a 10mm deep socket to remove the 7 nuts (leave the ones that hold the lock assembly alone)
3. Wiggle the assembly free from the trunk lid, being careful not to damage the wires it will be dangling from.
4. Replace the bulbs (if only one is burnt out, replace the pair while you've got it apart, using long-life bulbs)
5. Put it back together (if the outside edge studs had plastic tips on them, put them back and press the plastic snaps back in to hold the carpet up.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE REAR BULB ON A 2006 BUICK LACROSSE


Asuming you mean taillight/turnsignal, and not highmounted brake light:
1.open the trunk
2.Remove 4 wingnuts on trunk trim (there are two on each side)
You can do it by only removing 2 on one side, but it makes a nicer job,
3.Pull back the trunk "trim" the carpeted cardboard
4.Remove 2 wingnuts which hold the taillight assembly in place
Pull out the taillight assembly; you might want to remove (i.e. unattach or unplug) the wiring harness
5.Turn the particular bulb's socket (there's 5 back there: 2 tail, 1 back up, 1 side marker, 1 brake/turn) counterclockwise, and it removes from the assembly, holding the bulb.
6. Pull out bulb and replace.
6. Reverse steps to reassemble.

I NEED DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO CHANGE THE LIGHT


You need to replace the turn signal and brake light bulb, any auto part store will carry it $2 per bulb. In trunk remove carpet covering where the cargo net would hook.Unscrew this, then you'll see the wires just move them and unscrew the bulb, and replace with new one.

Replace rear brake light bulb 1998 lincoln continental


pop the trunk and right behind where the lights are pull the carpet down and their will be of the following depending on the trim.

You will either see the light sockets themselves that you can twist and pull to change the bulb, or you will see the plastic nuts/screws that you can remove to remove the entire assembly in order to access the bulbs.

If it's your 3rd brake light, the screws to access the housing are located in the upper part of the trunk

How to change break light bulb 1997 geo prizem


Step #1 Open Trunk, on inside of the light housing close to the trunk latch area are 2 bolts, Remove them, on mine they were 10mm

Step#2 Inside the trunk are 2 Black clips that hold the carpet down They have flat heads that look like screws but they are actually clips that pop out

Step#3 Peal back the carpet in the trunk and look in the corner of the rear of the light assembly by the fender You will see a nut and the end of a bolt On mine these were gold colored, Remove the nut

Step#4 On the outside of the vehicle again take a screwdriver or such and gently pry the outside edge of the assembly to dislodge the pin holding it in place You cant see it but you will feel when it gives and the whole light assembly will come out toward the rear of the car

Step#5 The brake lights are the bulbs to the inside of the assembly, gently twist the socket counter clockwise and remove it from the housing, Then push down on the bulb and twist it to remove it from the socket, Replace with the new bulb and reassemble everything and You are home free!

Hope this helps, Took me a long time to figure this one out without an owners manual!

Take Care and good luck
Allen
