SOURCE: cannot remove tail light assembly

I had the HARDEST time with the lights...I never realized changing a bulb would be so difficult. Once you unscrew what you need to, go into the trunk and pull the lining away from the back part of the light. There are the white prongs that you will need to tap with a hammer until they pop out and then the light assembly will come out. Be careful though, I got a little too impatient and broke mine. I used a binding agent to hold it back in place though...GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: How do you replace rear tail light assembly?

Open the trunk and along the bottom of the tail light, there should be a Philips screw securing a cover piece. (your car may or may not have this piece)
With the cover off, there will be another 2 screws securing the bottom of the tail light assembly. Remove the screws and pull the bottom out and the top is held in by two retainers that should just slide right out

How to remove the lens housing unit on a rear peugeot van ?


Can you get to the bulb from inside the van? You may not need to remove the whole assembly. The lens can't be removed by itself - it's part of a complete assembly - housing and lens in one unit.

Need to replace tail lights on 1993 mercury capi


Pretty basic stuff...open the trunk and move the trunk liner material away from the rear of the car to expose wiring for the tail lights...there are 3 light bulbs per side, the backup, brakes and tail lights...just twist the plug where it connects to the lens assembly and the socket will come out...remove the bulb and take it to the auto parts store to make sure you purchase the correct replacement...if your lenses are broken, there are 6 nuts to remove that lets the entire lens assembly be removed and replaced with one from a junk yard, you cannot buy these new anymore...good luck...

My tail light is out over the license plate on my 1993 buick park avenue. How do I get to it to change it?


There will be 6-10 retainers (sometimes they are 10mm nuts and sometimes they are plastic speed nuts) holding the whole lens assembly to the trunk lid. Once those are removed you will be able to remove the lens assembly and access the bulb. There are six bulbs all together, two for the license place and four tail lights (not including the reverse lights) and they are part number 194. I usually recommend replacing all six while you have the lens removed from the trunk.

I need to change the brake and tail light on my 1996 toyota corolla . I would need a manuel on that please.


The steps to replace the brake light bulb on a 1996 Toyota Corolla:

The bulb needed is type 1157. After opening the trunk you need to remove the trunk liner on the side (right side for this example)where the brake light bulb is out. The plastic capture grommets hold the liner in place. Once the grommets are removed there is a nut (10mm) that is a bright brass-like color. This needs to be removed. Then on the outside of the trunk on the tail-light lens left side there are two nuts black in color (10mm) they need to be removed. Now the fun starts .... you needto slide the whole assembly back. You will note two black plastic posts on the rear quarter-panel, do not remove these ... these are used to hold the tail-light assembly in place since on the inside of the tail light assembly there are two rod-like protrusions that slide into these brackets. So.... remove the screws and wiggle the assembly back and it "should" slide back so that you can get at the bulb socket hat you twist to remove from the assembly. Now the bulb is visible and you reverse the order of steps to get it all back together .... a miserable design!

Tail Light Removal on 03 Charade


Daihatsu Charade EL 2003 rear lens removal. Open the tailgate and remove the two bolts securing the lens assembly. Then get a good hold of the lens and pull out. You need to pull out the whole lens assembly since there are three plastic protruding 'clips' on the side along the lens. Please view attached pictures. Then turn the bayonet bulb holder, replace the slide on type bulb and reassemble everything back in place.

Need to replace rear passenger tail light as outer plastic casing is broken,wondering how difficult it is


It will be one of the easiest replacements on the car. Inside the trunk, fold back the carpet and you should see fairly big wing nuts. Remove these and the whole assembly should come out. As you remove it, don't **** on the housing. The harness will have to be disconnected. The new lens can be installed reverse order.

Replace rear tail light bulb on a 2005 nissan maxima


Open the trunk, from the inside remove the side trunk liner (by removing the plastic tabs the liner can be pulled back). Once the liner is pulled back you will need to remove two nuts which secure the tail light in place. Once the two nuts are removed you can start pulling the whole tail light assembly out. There are two other tabs that secure the tail light in place which may give you some resistance but the light should come out without too much force once the two nuts are removed.
Once the tail light is out you can change whatever bulbs you need to.

Remeove rear combination tail light cover 2006 Nissan XTERRA


thode screws hold the lens or the light assembly? Allow for the whole tail light to come out and the bulb plug will be accessible. I never had the privilage. But how the lens fits will tell you. If the lens goes overthe edges, the whole unit comes out, lens is sealed. Good luck
