How to remove a 96 Volvo 960 wagon tail light assembly

I don't know how to remove the old assembly, to replace it. The access port is tiny -- maybe good for replacing bulbs but there's nothing obvious about how to unfasten and remove the whole assembly.

Stop light bulb replace


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 tail lamp / break lamp uses bulb number 3157.

Legacy wagon tail light replacement


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
