Yes, and it will still be tight as it has tabs engaged...you just have to force it free from this point. Look, and as you wiggle it, you will see where tabs are engaged...mostly it is just friction so a good grip should free it. Lamp/bulbs assemblies simply twist out for lamp/bulb replacement.

How do you replace the brake light on a 2003 volkswagon


Open the trunk, push back the carpet in the area of the tail light. You will find 2 or 3 black plastic wing nuts. Take these nuts loose and remove the whole light assy. from its bay. Once out remove the wiring harness by twisting the plug 1/4 turn to access the bulbs.

How to change the brake lights on the mercury sable


Hello,
In order to replace the light bulbs you will have to remove the entire rear light housing unit. In order to do this you must do the following:

1.Open the trunk.

2.Loosen the trunk lining in order to reach the 4 nuts that are located on the right or left side and hold the light housing in place.


3.You loosen the trunk lining fabric by removing two small, black plastic fasteners that anchor the trunk lining fabric. These either screw loose or you will need to pop off using a blunt- nosed pliers ( a flat head screwdriver works in a pinch) by first pulling the square bit out (towards the direction of the back seat,) followed by the circular components.


4.Pull the fabric loose on either the left or right side to expose the 4 nuts holding the light assembly in place.


5.Now, look for the four gold colored washer and nut assemblies surrounding the tail-light assembly. Find yourself a 7/16 socket and remove those washers and nuts. The tail-light itself should be able to pop- out, otherwise you've missed a washer- nut.


6.Ease the tail- light assembly off of it's perch on the car and hold it red- side down. This will expose the wiring and "turn- locks" for the blinker and tail- light.


7.Remove the bulbs from the assembly by turning the turn- locks in the direction (counter- clockwise) indicated by the plastic molding, and pulling upwards, off of the tail- light assembly.


8.Pull the bulb from the turn- lock with a moderate tug of the hand.


Problem solved.

Thank you for using fixya..

How do you replace the taillight?


On the inside of the trunk right behind the tail lights you will need to pull back the carpet to expose the tail lights and wiring. There you will see the light sockets just give them a turn top toward the passenger side and they will pop loose. Actually holding the tail light in place will be 4 big plastic wing nuts. Turn them off and then just give the light a tap to break it loose as they usually stick. Put the new one back in and replace the carpet. PS some cars have the plastic wing nuts holding the carpet in, Yours should have clips that you just pry on to remove

How do you change the tail light?


from the trunk, pull down the carpet and remove the nuts holding down the tail light assembly. Should be 3-4 nuts. After removing the assembly from the outside simply turn the light socket to remove it from the tail light housing. Replace the bulb and reinstall in reverse order.

How do I replace tail lights on a 1999 ford taurus?


You go through the trunk and on either side is the light housing unit that you remove 4 nuts from, pull out and there will be the individual bulbs to be replaced.

IN DEPTH:

In order to replace the light bulbs you will have to remove the entire rear light housing unit. In order to do this you must do the following:

1.Pop the trunk.

2.Loosen the trunk lining in order to reach the 4 nuts that are located on the right or left side and hold the light housing in place.

3.You loosen the trunk lining fabric by removing two small, black plastic fasteners that anchor the trunk lining fabric. These either screw loose or you will need to pop off using a blunt- nosed pliers ( a flat head screwdriver works in a pinch) by first pulling the square bit out (towards the direction of the back seat,) followed by the circular components.

4.Pull the fabric loose on either the left or right side to expose the 4 nuts holding the light assembly in place.

5.Now, look for the four gold colored washer and nut assemblies surrounding the tail-light assembly. Find yourself a 7/16 socket and remove those bad boys. The tail-light itself should be able to pop- out, otherwise you've missed a washer- nut.

6.Ease the tail- light assembly off of it's perch on the car and hold it red- side down. This will expose the wiring and "turn- locks" for the blinker and tail- light.

7.Remove the bulbs from the assembly by turning the turn- locks in the direction (counter- clockwise) indicated by the plastic molding, and pulling upwards, off of the tail- light assembly.

8.Pull the bulb from the turn- lock with a moderate tug of the hand.

Replace the tail light bulbs in 2004 infiniti g 35 coup


tail light bulbs are replaced by removing the tail light housings. The housings are accessed by removing the nuts, the nuts are secured behind the inner trunk liner inside the trunk. Remove fasteners holding liner in place, remove 3 nuts for each housing(i believe it's 3 nuts if my memory serves me right), remove housing and replace bulbs

Legacy wagon tail light replacement


The one thing youll find with subaru's is that they like to put nuts in funny places that are hard to access. There are either 3 or 4 nuts holding the tail-light assembly in place, which means youll need to take out most of the inner panels to access the others. You should not need a sealant unless the rubber seal is done for or there is water inside the car. Hope this helps
