If it is like my buick you have to remove the whole light assembly. It bolts through the body. Inside the trunk, probably behind the inside covering there are probably around 3 nuts that go to the bolts holding the assembly on. You may need deep well sockets to reach them. Once you have loosend the assy you can reach the bulbs.
after you buy and install a new handle remove the access panel on the inside of the tailgate, lube all parts with WD40 also the locking devices at either side of the gate. Also make sure there is no body metal dented inward that could impead the moving parts. WD40 is going to make your day use it generously!
There are two phillips-headed bolts on each inside corner of the truck bed, behind the tailgate latches, that may be used to attach the brackets for the optional bed extender. If you have a bed liner installed, you will need to pull the corner of the liner back to expose the bolts.The factory bed liner needs to be flexed around the upper cargo hook to gain access to the two hex head screws that hold the tail-light housing against the body.Remove the screws so the tail light housing gets loose and easily comes out.this will help.please keep updated for further assistance if more help required.thanks.
The gasket between the light assembly and the body is a poor design and lets water into the housing when it rains hard after it dries out after a few years. Taking the lights off and replacing the gasket or adding sealant may help. I drilled a small hole in the bottom of each plastic housing for the water to drain out and resealed the lights too. Any water that gets in drains out the tailgate drain holes. Problem solved.
the bolts on the 2 arms which connect the body to the trunk must be loosend a little then tap with a rubber mallet or 4 by 4 with a cloth into part, prying a little at the same time. re-tighten bolts. assuming u wern't rear ended
Open the rear tailgate There are 2 screws that hold light housing in place.. Remove the screws then pull the housing outwards till the clip behind it springs. You then need to knock the housing sideways (outwards) to free the 2 prongs that attach housing to the car body.
Unclip the rear housing from the back of the light unit & change the bulb.
1. open tailgate. 2. remove corner floor piece by lifting. 3. remove corner side panel. pull out from tab on bottom. 4. remove two hex bolts(#10) to release light housing. they look like large allen wrenches. 5. replace bulb(s) and refasten again.
