    When i looked at doing that it looks like the fiberglass fender panel is keeping me from getting to the bulb itself. Are you sure i can get to the reverse light by just removing that side panel?

You have to access it through the trunk pop open the trunk and remove the plastic panel immediately behind where the light is It may also be carpeting.
then once you see the rear of the lights just twist and pull on the light assembly and it will come out for you to put in a new bulb.

Have no users manual and i'm not sure how you would replace the light bulb on the brake light


Change the Rear Brake Lights
  • Open the trunk and twist the retaining wing nuts off the studs holding the carpeted trim cover in place on the back side of the tail lamps.
  • Pull the carpeted trim cover out of the way and pry the plastic caps out of the holes with the screwdriver tip.
  • Unbolt the nuts holding the tail-lamp assembly in place using the socket set.
  • Pull the tail lamp assembly away from the body of the Stratus. Grab the socket for the bulb in question and twist it counterclockwise to remove it. Pull the old bulb out by hand and insert the replacement bulb. Reinstall the socket in reverse of removal.
  • Push the tail lamp assembly back into position and tighten the nuts back down onto the retaining studs using the socket set. Pop the plastic caps back into the holes, pull the carpeted trim cover back into position and reinstall the plastic wing nuts. Close the trunk.

I need to know how to access the bulbs in the taillight assembly on a 2004 ford explorer


Hi there,

Open the rear liftgate. On the inner edge of each tail light assembly you will find two screws. Remove the two screws. Now grasp the plastic tail light assembly firmly, and pull it strongly backwards. It is held in place with three spring-loaded clamps. Once the clamps release, it will pop out.

There are two lamp harnesses attached to the tail light assembly - one for the reverse lamp, and one for the running/brake/turn signal lamp. To remove either lamp harness from the tail light assembly, turn the harness 1/4 turn counter-clockwise, then gently pull it out of the assembly. The light bulb can be easily pulled from its socket in the lamp harness once removed from the assembly. Installation is reverse of removal.

Glad to be of help...

How do I change the tail lights on my hyundai tiburon 2003


Open your hatch and behind the tail lights you will see panels with plastic knobs you can unscrew. Behind there are 3 8mm nuts you need to unscrew which will let you remove the whole tail light assembly. There is a post on the actual tail light assembly that holds it in so you may have to give it a firm pull to actually seperate it from the car. If you have the stock infinity sub you will need to remove that first to get to the drivers side tail lamp.
