05 towncar--how do i get to the taillight assemby to change bulbs?


It you go inside the trunk and pull the liner back at the rear you will see plastic nuts that hold the tail light studs, remove the "finger nuts" and remove the tail light assembly to replace the bulbs. This is outlined in the owners manual in most Ford products.

How do you get to the left brake light bulb to change it?


Open trunk,pull trunk interior/liner away from back left corner
Remove three nuts, that hold tail light housing
Remove housing and replace burnt out lamp
They use an extended duty lamp/bulb,you may not find that
I add, that most China Made bulbs, don't last a year. So look for a Wagner, made in Mexico,France etc

Change break light


start by opening the rear gate (deck lid / trunk / boot) and using a small pointed tool , pop out the center of the retaining clips to loosen them to allow access behind the interior trunk liner.
This should allow you access to the rear of the tail light and the bulb holders / sockets to change the lights.
Do it right and replace all of the lights right away , keeping the old un-burnt bulbs as emergency spares.

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.

How to change tail and head lights on a 2000 Mercury Cougar


I do not know exactly how your car is setup, but usually there are only two ways to access the rear bulbs. One is inside from the trunk, there may be a small access port in the trunk liner behind the bulbs, you remove this access port and reach in to get at the bulb. The other, more difficult, open the trunk, look for a couple of screws near the tailights that look like they hold in the edge of the light housing and are hidden when you close the trunk. Remove those screws (maybe Torx style), and the you can pull out the tail light assembly from the body and change the bulbs from there.
This is just a very brief description.

Chang brakelights on a sebrig


Hello!

  1. Open the trunk by using the driver's side trunk release latch or by manually unlocking it.
  2. Peel back the trunk liner to expose the wiring connector and taillight housing plastic retainers.
  3. Disconnect the wiring connector, loosen the plastic retainers and remove the taillight assembly from the car.
  4. Twist the turn signal bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the taillight assembly. Then, pull the malfunctioning bulb straight out of the socket.
  5. Insert the replacement bulb directly into the empty socket and then twist the socket back into the taillight assembly.
  6. Reinstall the tail light assembly.
  7. Activate the turn signal to make sure it's working. If it lights up, fasten the trunk lining back into place and close the trunk

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
