Re: changing tail light
Pop the trunk open and on the inside opposite of where the tail light is,you will see black plastic wing nuts.These are mounting nuts and you need to remove them to get the tail light off.Once off,you will see a couple of bulb sockets that twist and lock into place on the taillight.Look for a tab on the side of the socket,push it in and turn counter clockwise.Once you have done that it should pull out and expose the bulb,then the bulb just pulls out of the socket.
