How to replace tail light bulb - 05 Honda Odyssey

2005 odyssey tail light bulb replacement,how to do it after you remove the 2 screws? I have the same issue, removing the two screws isn't enough, there's something else holding the assembly in the van but I don't see any other screws. I haven't gotten to the part about unplugging the wires yet, they're not exposed yet. Thanks anyone that can help!

    Thanks. My wife ended up taking it to the Honda dealer. They explained that you have to remove an interior panel to be able to remove the taillight assembly. They offered to replace it for $19.99, parts and labor, so she had them do it. I'm guessing it was well worth the $20 because removing that interior panel didn't look like it would be any fun.

Yup after removing the 2 screws, there is a round plastic tap.
you need to pop the light housing back and outward with a flat screwdriver. wrapped electrical tape on the flat end to avoid scratching the paint.

According to another site, you have to pull the assembly straight back as there is a plastic clip (spear point) in the front holding the assembly on. However on my 2000 ody, I had to insert a flat head screwdriver into the point at the 'front' of the assembly and using it as a lever to pry the assembly back gently. Be very careful, if you use too much force, you could break the whole assembly.

One thing I found true for my 2000 ody, was that the brake light bulbs need to be double leads vice single lead. I purchased 7440 - single lead and discovered I needed the double lead (which may be 7443, not sure). Anyway, I am taking it to my mechanic since the book at the auto parts store listed the incorrect bulb.

How do you replace a brake light?


serjoijr: To replace the bulb, you must remove the tail lamp housing.
Open the tailgate. There are two screws which retain the lamp housing to the body. You can see them when you open the tail gate, One is near the top and one is near the bottom. They are a phillips head type screw.
Remove both screws and pull the lamp housing directly backwards. DO NOT TWIST IT TO THE SIDE! The housing has a pin on the opposite side which interlocks with the body, keeping it in place on that side.
Once you have pulled the housing away from the body, you will see the lamp sockets and wiring harness. These sockets usually rotate to one side or another to interlock with the housing. Once the socket is removed, you can replace the bulb and return the housing back to the original spot.

2003 Honda Odyssey Brake light replacement


open the rear hatch. Between the tail light housing and the rear hatch opening there is a trim strip with two flush fitted flap doors. Insert a small straight blade screwdriver into the small slot on the tail light side of the flap. Pry gently inboard and the small flap will open (the hinge side of the flap is on the side of the rear hatch opening.) Now you can remove the screws that hold the tail lamp assembly in place. Finally, there is still a "spear point" clip that fits into a socket near the front outboard corner of the assembly. Gently pry with a tape wrapped screwdriver (avoids scratches) and force the assembly straight back. The clip should release and free the assembly so you can change the bulb(s).
