Rear lower break light, how to remove the light assembly to install a new bulb. I can remove the carpet like cover, and pull out the hole cover, but getting to the bulb seems impossible. Does the steel cover come off, or is there a nice neat way to break into it.>?

How do I get to the back up light on a 1988 Delta 88?


  1. Most rear lamps can be accessed from inside the trunk. Open trunk and look for access past the carpet.
  2. By pulling back the carpet or removing the large plastic carpet retaining nuts, you can see the back of the light assembly.
  3. If you can reach the bulb from inside the trunk, you don't need to remove the lens assembly to replace the bulbs. But, if you can't reach the bulb and connector assembly, you may need to remove the lens assembly.
  4. If necessary, remove the tail light panel screws and the lens assembly.
  5. You can now simply turn the bulb connector assembly counterclockwise and remove it from the lens housing.
Fig. 8: Once the carpet is pulled down, you can see the retaining wingnuts which must be removed to access the rear bulbs

Tail lights do not work on a 2000 lexus rx 300 bulbs are fine, all other lights work fine


You may have a fried fuse. Look in your owners manual to find out which fuse it is in the fuse box diagram. If that is the problem make sure to use the same amperage fuse to replace the burned one with. I fried fuse is usually a sign that you have a short somewhere. But they can also fry for other reasons such as excess moisture somewhere. Sometimes they just burn from age and fatigue. It may solve it to just replace the fuse, but if there really is a short, the new fuse will fry too.

Replace rear window brake light bulb


I just had to do this, and it isn't all that easy or quick. First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits. (The screws are permanently attached to the lens housing so will not drop into obscurity when the nuts are removed). After removing the nuts, GENTLY work the lens housing away from the car. You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.

You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.

Just reverse these directions to reassemble the housing.
