How do i change the brake bulb for my 2007 mercury mariner? I have already removed the 2 screws on the inside section of the rear tail light lens, but something is keeping it connected on the outside of the lens.

    Yes, there are only 2 screws (according to the parts catalog printout), but there is some kind of a grommet that is holding the lens assembly to the body of the vehicle. Since I can't see the grommet, I am concerned that I will break something if I pull or push in the wrong way.

    Thank you for your suggestions. Since I was uncomfortable with this procedure (those lenses are expensive), and since I have a friend who is a mechanic, I took it to him to look at. As it turns out, I needed to pull the lens straight out with several solid tugs. Your butter knife suggestion would have probably worked, since it would have extracted the lens in the correct direction.

    Thank you again.

Are you positive that there are only 2 screws? If so give a good push with your thumbs near the ceanter of the assembly it should pop out. If not theres another screw that your missing.

    Try prying around the outside edges with a non serated butter knife, it will eventually come out.

07 Lincoln MKX how do you get tail light assembly out after removing the 2 screws. won't budge!


The two screws hold the rear of the tail light in place. The front of the tail light is held in place by two pins that fit inside two sleeves. After removing the screws, gently rock the lens and pull straight back toward the rear of the car. The pins will slip out of the sleeves and you have access to the bulbs.

How do i change the rear tail light lens on my 2008 hyundai veracruz


Open the rear hatch. Using a small straight edge screwdriver, insert the screwdriver into the slot at the top of each of the two screwcovers on the inside lip of the tail light assemby and carefull pry open. Remove the two screws using a philips screwdriver. Drape a small cloth over the head of a larger straight edge screwdriver and insert at the tip of the tail light assembly (on the rear side of the car and carefully turn back and forth while wiggling the entire assembly. This will eventually allow you to work the tail light assembly loose from the grip pin that is holding the assembly on. Once removed, replace the appropriate bulb. With the assembly still not installed, have someone step on the brake to ensure the new bulb is working properly. Reinstall assembly. Hope this was helpful....I just changed mine.

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.

Brake light


Access to the brake light bulb is through the tail light lens. First, remove the tail light lens by removing the single star shaped screw that secures the lens. You do not need a special screwdriver or bit: a regular flathead screwdriver will work fine.
