You can change the headlights from inside the engine. there are "how to's " on the internet. the tail light is pretty easy what I do is open the hatch then theres this round cover. open that and there should be a screw. unscrew that ( it holds the lights from the inside ) then with something flat ( i use a butter knife) try and dislodge the tail lights it will pop right out. then you can twist the the faulty lights off.

Tail lights don't work on 83 cutlass supreme


I assume you checked the bulbs and they were good? It's possible that the sockets have gone bad and need replacing. The tail lights are fused through the instrument panel lights. that fuse should be in the middle of your fuse box, marked "instr". If the fuse is good check to see if the dash lights come on when you turn the headlight switch on. If they don't then change the headlight switch. hope this helps.

I have a 99 lincoln town car and for some reason my park lights and tail lights stop working but i have headlights and brake lights and 4 ways. can you help


a_carradine,

Chances are you have a bad bulb. Change all bulbs for the parking and tail lights, making sure as well that they are the correct format (i.e. 1156, 1157 etc).

I suggest contacting a local auto parts dealer for specific indications for these bulbs. They will let you know what correct bulbs to use. You will want to check the fuse panel and make sure the fuses for these are not blown or missing.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance with this matter.

You might have to jiggle the headlight while doing this, dust and rock particles get wedged in the tracks making it hard to slip out.

I cant get the tail light out to change the bulb


No tools needed.

Beetles: Round plug inside trunk pops out.
Beetle Convts: Grille-looking rectangular panel pops out.

Reach in and you'll feel a large finger-grip able nut, back it off (DON'T DROP
IT) and place it somewhere retrievable. Take a small-flat-bladed screwdriver and wrap it in cloth so you don't scratch the paint. Poke said protected blade between the inside body joint and the tail light, gently pry tail light out. Remove offending bulb, replace with new. Installation is, as they say, the reverse of removal.

How do I change a headlight lamp in a 2003 VW New Beetle Turbo?


The headlight is actually a bulb inserted into a light module. You can remove the plastic light module by releasing the tension spring on the rear of the headliht housing inside your hood. Once the tension spring is released pull the plastic light module from the fender socket by gently pulling on the edges of the headlight. The module should pull out with some minor difficulty. Remove the bad bulb from the rear of the plastic bubble, and replace it with a new halogen bulb. Replace the module into the fender socket and reclip the tension spring(s). Not all that difficult of a job once you know how its accomplished.

Check if you have a pull tab. A headlight cover typically has a pull tab molded in it so that you can easily take off the cover when you want to clean it

hi each h/light on car has its own fuse as does the offside and nearside side and tail lights also a seperate fuse is for the brake stop lights so if you check the fuse box and fuses you may find fault ? also if you check the underneath of panel cover you may find indication of each fuse and its amp rating and purpose ?
