Replacing tail lights on a versa hutchback

I changed my wife's last night and there is no need to take the tail light housing out. I have taken it off before but you do not need to access the light. Use a pair of needle nose pliers and get the light out. If you insist on taking the housing out, take the nuts off the house from inside the trunk and pull hard. It is really stuck in there but will give way.

Replace the tail light bulbs in 2004 infiniti g 35 coup

tail light bulbs are replaced by removing the tail light housings. The housings are accessed by removing the nuts, the nuts are secured behind the inner trunk liner inside the trunk. Remove fasteners holding liner in place, remove 3 nuts for each housing(i believe it's 3 nuts if my memory serves me right), remove housing and replace bulbs

Cant remove my 08 lancer Tail lights

After removing the two screws, you have to grab both sides of the tail light housing and wiggle the housing out by rocking it left and right while GENTLY pulling it away from your body. You absolutely MUST be careful when doing this because if you use excessive force, you risk cracking the housing and even damaging the wiring.

I have already chipped the corner on BOTH of my housings when attempting to remove them. I had to super glue the pieces back on. It was not a happy moment.

Tail light blinker replacement

Laura E;

Most tail light housings use the same approach. The bulb is removed from the housing by twisting
the back of the bulf where the wires are. Usually the bulb itself has a rubber back and turning it about a quarter turn counterclockwise (remember lefty=loosey; righty = tighty) will release the bulb it from the taillight housing. Take the bulb with you when you go for a replacement to be sure you get the right one.
The bulb will only fit one way into its socket and the socket will only fit one way into the housing.

Good luck ,

Replacing the left rear driver side tail lamp assembly

Most of these type lights do not have a plug. I am assuming that you want to replace a burnt out lamp.

Here's what you do. Remove the assembtail lamp assembly. It is usually held on with 2 or 3 phillips head screws. If the problem is a burnt out lamp, the lamp assembly will unscrew from the unit by turning it counterclockwise about a quarter turn. Take the bad bulb to an auto parts store and get a replacement. The bulb will only fit one way into its socket. Then take the socket with the new bulb and insert it back in the housing. Again it will only fit one way. remount the tail light assembly.

If the actual plastic tail light assembly is broken or cracked remove the lamp assembly as described above, take the broken tail light to a dealer and ghet a new one. They are expensive. I just replaced one for my 95 F-150 pickup and it was $40.

How to remove the tail lights from a 2003 murano

Here's the step by step procedure from the beginning.
  1. Carefully remove the black one inch wide plastic molding strip that runs along the interior side of the tail light. This can be pried off carefully without breaking the plastic clips that hold it in place.
  2. Using a 10mm socket, remove the two bolts that you see which secure the tail light housing.
  3. The tail light housing is also held in place with three or four plastic clips which can be broken rather easily if you don't do this next step carefully. Begin prying the plastic tail light using a plastic putty knife or screwdriver. The top clip comes out pretty easily and so does the bottom one.
  4. On a cold winter day, the middle clip is the one that can break rather easily so gently rock the tail light or wait for warm weather when the plastic isn't brittle.
  5. Once the tail light "bucket" is removed it's a simple matter to replace the bulbs.
