Are you talking about the bezel lens. If so it has to be replaced from the back. Dis assembly is quite a job. You don't say what type of car it is (model , make, year)..so I can only give you general information.

SOURCE: cannot remove tail light assembly

I had the HARDEST time with the lights...I never realized changing a bulb would be so difficult. Once you unscrew what you need to, go into the trunk and pull the lining away from the back part of the light. There are the white prongs that you will need to tap with a hammer until they pop out and then the light assembly will come out. Be careful though, I got a little too impatient and broke mine. I used a binding agent to hold it back in place though...GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: How do you remove/replace the light switch on the dash

It's easy, I had a 98 F-150 (same switch) and I removed the switch a couple of times.

Disconnect Neg battery cable, then turn switch to ON position and pull knob outward to the fog light ON position. Using a small screwdriver, pry the knob off the headlight switch.

Turn the knob 180 degrees from the ON position an reinstall it back onto the headlight switch.

Turn the headlight switch to the OFF position, then rotate the knobclokcwise as far as possible and hold it. This will enable the lockingtab on the back to retract and the headlight switch to be removed fromthe instrument panel.

SOURCE: SOLUTION: HOW TO REPLACE REAR BULBS ON 2002 & 2004 BUICK LESABRE

Rear tail lamps for the 2002 La Sabre has eight nuts that hold the cover in place ( one piece-all acroos the back of the car). Do not remove the nuts for the lock, the cover sits in place and is not secured to the lock. Use a 10 mm deep well socket. remove the nuts and lift the cover to replace the burned out bulb(s). The bulbs are #194 or #198 (very small bulbs), not the 3057. It is easy to locate the burned out bulbs by putting the car in reverse and shutting off the engine and then put the ignition key in the accessory mode. The lights will light unless they are burned out. Simply pull them out and replace with the new ones and put the cover back in place and secure the nuts.

Turn signals and emer flashers dont work,fuses are good and test light shows power at fuses


Replace the elctronic flasher relay, it runs both turn and emergency flashers in one relay.The flasher/turn signal is screwed into the metal support above the fuse panel, you must take the bottom of the dash off and remove the plastic cover. this is for a sable that has light out detection. Look under your dash for a blue box screwed into the right side of the dash panel. This of course is done, with you laying on your back, and your feet in the back seat. It's a blue box, about the size of half a twinkie (cream filled, golden sponge cake). Remove the plug that holds it in, unscrew the screw that holds it to the frame, and go to Autozone or other parts store, to get a new relay. You will have to reuse the metal piece that holds the relay to the dash panel, so be sure and save that before you throw the old part away. Installation is the reverse. Read more

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6


hello,
  • Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.

  • Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    I need to replace the left turn signal bulb but cant figure out how to get into the turn signal assembly


    pop the hood up - remove the plastic cover that spans over the radiator area -- there should be 6 plastic push-in clips holding it, I use a wire crimper tool to pull them up -- it's a bit tough to see, a flash light will greatly help, but just next to the headlight you can use a larger screwdriver to pry back the plastic clip that holds the clearance/turn signal lamp to the headlamp and it will just pop out from there. If I remember correctly, you'll have to pry towards the center of the car. It is fairly stiff so be firm, but not violent.

    How to replace side light n front


    Remove the splash shield that fits across the top (under the hood). You need to carefully pry the six bolt-style plastic clips off that hold it.
    The signal lamp assembly is removed by releasing a clip which is located between the headlamp assembly and signal lamp assembly. There is a slot in the top to insert a screwdriver. Push down on the clip and the signal assembly should slide right out.

    How do you replace aheadlight light bulb ina olds


    Remove plastic Grill (6 screws)
    Remove Turn Signal Light (3 Screws)
    This allows you to access the 4 screws that hold in the Headlight. Remove these and then remove the headlight. Once out, then just turn the bulb and remove. Be careful with the plastic clip that holds the bulb to the wiring harness. Since the car is old, the plastic will easily break.

    Turn signal


    look at the plastic cover of the light. see if there are screws on the front, remove the screws and the bulb will be exposed.

    if your signal light is a whole assembly, you can remove the whole assembly by unscrewing the holding screws and sliding the assembly. then twist the bulb holder that is inserted in the back of the assembly and the bulb would be exposed.

    Left and right turn signal do not flash. the emergency flasher do. how do i replace the flasher for the turn signal on a 1999 cadillac deville.


    Take off the black plastic cover under the dash above the brake pedal, 2 9/32 screws hold the front edge to the bottom of the dash. The flasher is located behind the dash above the parking brake. it has a metal clip holding it to the dash about behind the trunk release button. You have to reach around with your hand to find it as it is hard to see. Once you unclip it you can pull it down to unplug it. I just did this job, once you find it it's easy. Napa carries the replacement flasher $13.19. Good luck!!
