Question about 2002 Ford Escort
I need to replace the left rear turn signal/brake lamp on my 2002 Ford Escort. I have located and unscrewed the two screws that attach the assembly, but can't figure out which way to knock the lamp cover in order to get inside. (My owner's manual says "hit the lamp toward the side of the car with the side of your hand," but doesn't specify which side of the lamp to hit). Can anybody clarify? I don't want to hit it so hard I break something...
You can purchase some very cheap plastic trim tools at harbor freight tools to complete the job.use tools to pry between body of car and plastic turn signal assembly,try using a flashlight to locate the clips holding it to body

Replacing tail/brake/turn signal/backup lamp bulbs (page 59-60 of owners manual)
The tail lamp, brake lamp, turn
signal lamp and backup lamp bulbs
are located in the same portion of
the tail lamp assembly. Follow the
same steps to replace either bulb.
1. Make sure headlamp switch is in
OFF position and open trunk and
remove two plastic mushroom nuts,
three push pins and the plastic
cover from inside the trunk to
access the lamp assembly.
2. Carefully pull the carpet away to
expose the lamp assembly hardware.
3. Remove four nut and washer
assemblies and the lamp assembly
from the vehicle.
4. Remove the bulb socket by
rotating it counterclockwise, then
pulling it out of the lamp assembly.
5. Pull the bulb from the socket and
push in the new bulb.
6. Install the bulb socket into the lamp assembly by rotating it clockwise.
7. Install the lamp assembly on the vehicle with four nut and washer
assemblies ensuring the washers on the nuts are flush with the body to
prevent water from entering the trunk.
8. Carefully push the carpet back in to place and install the plastic cover
inside the trunk with three push pins and two plastic mushroom nuts.
