you have to remove the net hooks from the plastic peice running the entire width of the trunk at rear of trunk next to lock assembly...I think there are 4 or 5 or maybe more, don't remember. this allows the entire light assembly to be removed from rear of car...you can then access the bulbs after the assembly has been removed
Believe it or not, for the Taurus wagon, Ford wants you to take it in to the shop. The Taurus wagon tail light assembly is really a stupid design. I will do my best to describe it here. You must remove
the two phillip screws on the tailight assembly, seen when you have the
hatch door up. The trick is the assembly is still held with a hinge
type, snap in deal that holds the front part of the assembly tight to
the body side. You might be able to see or access it from inside the
spare tire cover or the access door on the passenger side. Being oh so
careful to release the clip so you can pull the assembly free to change
the bulb. Hope this is some help.
The one thing youll find with subaru's is that they like to put nuts in funny places that are hard to access. There are either 3 or 4 nuts holding the tail-light assembly in place, which means youll need to take out most of the inner panels to access the others. You should not need a sealant unless the rubber seal is done for or there is water inside the car. Hope this helps
