You have to remove the rear door inside panel.First thing is to remove the top and side interior trim panels,they just pop out by prying them away after they are out the metal retaining clips sometimes stay in the door,pull them out and put them on the plastic panel before reinstalling.Then the strap that you use to close it has a cover on it that you have to push up to get off then remove the 10 mm bolt that holds the strap.Then pry the panel away from the door I think that the bottom has two hooks on it which means that the top needs come off first so you can lift the panel hooks out of the slots.Once the panel is off you will see the bulbs they twist out and you have to pull the bulbs out.Good luck

SOURCE: no brake light one side

It is likely that the bulb is just out as the left and right brake lights would be on the same circuit. Unless there is a strange wiring issue simply replacing the bulbs should correct your problem.

How do I replace the license plate lights?


I have a 2008 Equinox and it was a hassle to do on mine. The manual talks about removing 2 screws from the outside to remove the cover on each bulb. I was unable to get the old bulbs out. I then removed the plastic molding from the inside and the light sockets twist and pull out. The bulbs are easy to remove and replace then. The plastic panel inside just snaps out at several places. I had to loosen the back wiper motor
to get to one of them.

Help how do i change the license plate bulb on my 2004 corolla?


I just replaced my 2 bulbs an hour ago in my garage.
1. Pry off all the clips that hold the liner. I used a cloth covered spatula, so
as not to chip the paint, to pull out the liner a little bit and used my
index and middle finger to pull back the clip and the liner, very slowly to
prevent breakage. When all the clips are off, the liner will fall, no need
to remove the emergency release handle.
2. Press the tiny release lock that hold the wires in the socket and pull
out the wires, carefully.
3. Turn the socket 1/4 the the left carefully, while putting a little pressure
upward, then the socket will release.
4. Pull the bulb staight out and replace it.
5. Reverse the procedure and voila! A ton of money saved!!!!!!
MVC.

    1. Open the trunk and locate the trunk liner retainer clips.Use the Phillips head screwdriver to loosen the center plastic screw of the retainer clip about 1/4 turn, just enough to raise the head of the screw from the base of the clip. Pull the screw up, and lift the clip out of the liner. Use a flathead screwdriver to help pry it out. Remove enough of the clips to allow access to the license plate light sockets. Pull the liner back.

    2. Remove the emergency trunk release handle by popping off the top cover of the handle. Use the needle nose pliers to gently squeeze the prongs on the shaft, while removing the handle.
