How to remove passenger side tail light lens to replace bulb

After loosening and removing the 2 screws holding the lens in place, how should it be handled to remove it? Does it lift up and back? Mine doesn't seem to want to release. Any explanation would be greatly appreciated.

I also need input on how to access the back up bulbs in the license plate trim.

    the license plate and trim are mounted in the Navigator tail gate and it appears that the inside gate trim panel/cover needs to be removed to get to the bulb fixtures.

    The back up light bulb fixtures are behind clear lenses in the license plate trim, which is in the center of the lift gate, not in the bumper- unfortunately...that would be too easy.



    I don't see a way to access the bulbs from the outside- no screws visible. I also don't see how the interior lift gate trim can or should be removed to get to the back up light fixtures.

After you remove the two torx screws ,it should be pulled out .if the seals are stuck on ,use a plastic knife and pry between seal
and pannel to release the light.
the licence plate bulbes are removed from behind the bumper. just twist the socket out and pull the bulb out. i hope it was helpefull .

You actually have to tap that lens from behind slightly as the seal around the lens is holding it in.

i believe the license plate bulbs are reached from under the car behind the trim

Replacing tail light bulbs on 2001 Toyota Sequoia


Remove the two screws holding the tail light cover in place along the edge of the tail light assembly.

After you remove the two screws in the back panel, you have to pull the assembly out towards the side of the vehicle. You cannot pull it straight back from the trunk or you will break the pins that hold the lens cover onto the side of the SUV.

There are two pins that allow the light cover to be secured against the back of the truck. One pin is towards the top, the other pin is towards the bottom.

Twist out the bulb assembly.
Pull out the bulb
Insert the new bulb
Twist back in the bulb assembly
Place the pins over the pin holes in the light cover mold on the side of the truck
Push in gently Replace screws and you are done.

Mazda Millenia tail light bulb replacement


Problem has been solved. I very gently pulled on both ends of the lens assembly and it popped off. The white plastic pieces housed plastic attachment 'tabs'. They can snap right back in place once pulled out to put assembly back.
