Question about Cars & Trucks
The plastic insert has broken and needs removal and replacement. How do I remove it and what is its' proper name?
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.

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!

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.

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.

Just remove the 4 screws and then slowly pull the cluster out and reach behind and disconnect the plugs on the back of the unit and then remove the cluster. The bulbs can be removed by turning them and pulling out.

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.
