Question about 1987 Dodge Ram 50

1 Answer

Taillight removal The taillights don't twist remove like most taillights i've seen. Was hoping someone has changed them before. Wondering if their the needle armed ones of old, like you'd find on the old cars ex. 78 cougar. The ones where the small needle like arms wrap around the bulb. Just trying to figure out before i break it.

Usually metal socket for pull out, plastic are usually twist 1/4 turn or so, and pull out. If it's appears to be metal at base against housing, probably pull out. Wiggle & see.

Need to know how to replace rear taillight bulb.


You'll need a phillips head screwdriver and possibly a needle-nose pliers.

Open your tailgate and look near the taillight assembly. With the tailgate open, you'll see 2 phillips head screws holding the taillight assembly in place. Remove the screws and pull out and toward the side of the car. You'll see the wiring harness that plugs into the taillight body and three plastic disks that have a raised plastic tab. Twist the tab counter-clockwise for about 1/4 turn and the disk/socket will come out with the bulb attached. The socket may be difficult to twist by hand, so you may need a needle-nose pliers to grip the tab lengthwise. I suggest replacing all of the bulbs in the assembly at once, even if they're not all bad so that you won't have to do it again when another bulb inevitably burns out.

After you have the bulb(s) replaced, reassemble the taillight and reattach in the reverse order of disassembly.

How to change a tail light bulb in a honda element


Open the hatch and the tailgate.

Remove the two mounting screws with a Phillips-head screwdriver, and remove the taillight assembly from the body by pulling it back.

Determine which of the three bulbs is burned out: brake/taillight, turn signal light or backup light. (I assume you’ve already determined this)

Remove the socket by turning it one-quarter turn counterclockwise.

Pull the bulb straight out of its socket.

Push the new bulb straight into the socket until it bottoms.

Reinstall the socket into the light assembly by turning it clockwise until it locks.

Test the lights to make sure the new bulb is working.

When reinstalling the taillight assembly, first place the two pins in the holes in place. Tighten the two mounting bolts.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Hello!

  1. Open the trunk by using the driver's side trunk release latch or by manually unlocking it.
  2. Peel back the trunk liner to expose the wiring connector and taillight housing plastic retainers.
  3. Disconnect the wiring connector, loosen the plastic retainers and remove the taillight assembly from the car.
  4. Twist the turn signal bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the taillight assembly. Then, pull the malfunctioning bulb straight out of the socket.
  5. Insert the replacement bulb directly into the empty socket and then twist the socket back into the taillight assembly.
  6. Reinstall the tail light assembly.
  7. Activate the turn signal to make sure it's working. If it lights up, fasten the trunk lining back into place and close the trunk

I need to replace a taillight bulb.


You should be able to open the hatch and look on the inside of taillight housing. there should be two or three screws on the inside where the hatch seals. remove these screws and it should pop out. once its out unplug the connectors and you can twist the bulb out remove the bulb from the socket and replace. then just reverse the process.

Replacement of rear outside tail light assembly


If you're asking how do you change a taillight bulb, then follow this procedure:

Open the trunk lid.

Disconnect the connectors from the taillights (taillight bulb connectors are visible by looking inside the trunk at the back of the tail lamps.) There may be an interior trunk trim panel that you have to take off but in most cases its just a series of thumb screws that hold them in.


Brake Lights/Taillights: 21/5 W

Rear Turn Signal Light: 21 W

Back-up Light: 21 W

Rear Side Marker Light: 5 W


Turn the bulb sockets 45 º counterclockwise to remove the bulbs.


If you're removing the taillamps with the bumper off there are 3 nuts and screws that hold the taillight to the rear panel of the car that have to come off from the inside of the trunk.
Remove the nuts and screws, then remove the taillight.

hope that answers your question
