I am unable to replace the to center brake indicator bulb
I am unable to get into the fixture to replace the bulb in the top center brake indicator light. Does one approach it from inside the car and remove the cover, or unscrew the fixture inside the trunk? I have been unable to do either.

Re: I am unable to replace the to center brake indicator...
Should be able to pry the cover off from the inside. Being that the car is 26 years old, the plastic may be brittle and break. Take it easy, and you should be able to do it that way, or they may be 2 screws on the sides of it.

Look at the wiring harness that runs to your tail light fixture. make sure that the harness connections have not loosened. check harness casing and bulb iixtures for breaks or corrosion... sounds like you have a short going on. with the light switch on, try wiggling the wiring where it goes into the fixture. if the light flickers at all while doing this you have a short going on in the fixture and it may need to be replaced.
this is not a bulb u must replace the entire LED fixture, to do this remove the inside trim at rear around rear hatch opening, then you will need to drop the headliner down to access the retainers that hold the third brake fixture in, very easy job.
1999 Tercel rear light bulb replacement. Snap off 2 black caps to pull back carpet. Remove 2 screws on outside of trunk at the edge of trunk lid. The light fixture will loosen up. Sqeeze the tongs on the square white plastic plug on the inside and push plug through hole. You may have to give the light fixture a tug. Turn bulb holder and pull it out. Pull out bulb and put in new one.
Is it the rear tail light itself, or the side marker? I may have the same issue if its the side marker. However, the tail light itself is simple, remove the panel in the trunk side, and there are three seperate light fixtures, the bottom being the main tail light, the middle is the signal indicator and the top is the upper brake light.
The bulb in the rear light has burned out and to replace it follow these instructions: 1) go to your owner's manual to find out the part number. You can find and purchase the replacement bulb at Target, any auto parts store and even at Walmart for under $4.00; 2) pop open the trunk door; 3) get a phillips screw driver and unscrew the 2 screws holding the rear brake light fixture to your car body; 4) as soon as you turn over the fixture you'll see where to pull out the burned out bulb and replace it with the new one(s). Good luck!
