When the plugs are out, grip the lamp (I try to get my finger in as far as I can at the top corner) then pull it out straight back,I have seen the lamp and the quater damaged when someone uses a screwdriver to pry it out.there are 2 small balls that clip into plastic sockets in the rear quater, you need a T20 torx bit to remove the retaining screws from the lamp holder, the holder needs prying to free it from the housing. Test the lights before re-fitting, when the lampholder is re fitted slide the light unit in squarely and "pat" it with the palm of your hand to engage the balls, the holes should be in line to re-fit the plugs.

SOURCE: 2007 Dodge Nitro Tail Light Replacement

look at the car manual under maintenance and then rear light bulb replacement. First take out the two hole covers using a flat head to loosen then wiggle and turn by hand to get out. Pull the light unit straight back, and unplug the electrical. Don't break anything.
Then use a star driver (check your misc socket set drivers for the right size). Unscrew the two star head screws and pull this bulb holder straight off the tail light (same direction as screws). Replace the bulb and put back together in reverse.

How do I replace the brake light bulb


1.Open the tailgate.
2. Locate the plastic plugs attached to the brake light housing (on the right side of the driver side light, on the left of the passenger side).
3. Carefully pry up the plugs with a screwdriver or other flat tool (I believe there are two).
4. The light should be free to pull out (pull toward the rear of the vehicle). You should see two torx screws.
5. Remove the bolts and pull the housing away from the tail light lens.
6. Twist and pull to remove the correct bulb.
7. Insert the new bulb into the holder and replace the housing.
8. Verify that the replacement bulb(s) are working.
9. Reinstall the torx screws and place the assembly back into it proper location on the vehicle.
10. Push the plugs back into the holes and verify that it is secure.
11. Close the tailgate and check for proper fitment.

Can,t get to tail light bulb


Open the rear door and you will see 2 black, round, fasteners on each tailight where they meet the door when it's closed. You need to slide a thin screwdriver under the edge of these and pop them out. Then you will be able to remove the light assembly and and gain access to the light bulbs to change them out.

How do you replace break lights in 2007 Dodge Caliber?


Look inside the rear hatch area near the very rear of the vehicle. You should find a removable panel near the brake light housing. After you carefully remove the panel, look for some plastic wingnuts that hold the light housing in, and remove them, you should not need any tools to do this. After the nuts are removed you should be able to gently remove the tail light assembly from the rear of the car. Becareful not to damage the wiring. Now look at the back side of the tail lamp assembly and look for a locking tab on the light socket. Depress the locking tab and twist the light socket about a quarter turn, then pull the light socket away from the light housing. Pull the bulb out and replace it. Then reassemble and your done.

Need to change brake light on 2007 Nitro,


To Access The Brake Light Youll Need To Remove Carper Or Panel Opposite Of The Light. I Am Referring To The Inside Of The Vehicle Referred To As The Trunk Or Rear Storage. Once You Remove The Panel Or Carpet you Will Have Full Access To The Lights. Find The Light That Is Burnt Out By Turning On All The Lights From The Inside You Can See The Light In The Harness Not Working.
Next Grasp The Rear Of The Holder Twist And Pull.
A New Light Can Be Found At Any Auto Parts Store.
