This assembly give the dealer ship tech problems, poor design. I recommend you take it in o local dealer and have all your taillight bulbs replaced.
Because the other bulbs that still work is right behid the one that is burned out. (the life is the same)
It not worth the fustration, trust me.

There are actually 2 allen screws that hold the light in, one is pretty high and sits close to the trim in the rear so it is hard to see.2008 volvo xc90 rear tail light bulb out. trying - 3_3_2012_5_21_00_am.jpg

How do I replace a rear turn signal bulb?


Some bulbs can be changed without removing the tail light. First check to see if there is an access panel in the trunk trim near the tail light. If there is, you can twist the turn signal socket counter-clockwise to remove it from the unit. If there is no access panel you will have to remove the portion of trim blocking the tail light. This is usually held in by a few small clips. After it is removed you can follow the directions above.
Lastly, some models have to have the tail light removed to change a bulb. The bolts will either be behind the trunk trim or on the inside edge of the tail light.
Once the bulb is changed just reverse the steps to put it back together.
Good Luck!!

Tail Light Removal on 03 Charade


Daihatsu Charade EL 2003 rear lens removal. Open the tailgate and remove the two bolts securing the lens assembly. Then get a good hold of the lens and pull out. You need to pull out the whole lens assembly since there are three plastic protruding 'clips' on the side along the lens. Please view attached pictures. Then turn the bayonet bulb holder, replace the slide on type bulb and reassemble everything back in place.

How do I access the brake light on the passenger side of a 2007 Volvo XC90?


You need to remove the upholstery from that side. It is fixed with wide, plastic knobs. Turn them open 1/4 turn and remove the upholstery.

The lights are assembled into a plastic 'cradle'. If you're new to this, only remove one bulb at the time and replace it.

1999 Toyata camry rear taillight assembly bulb replacement


Just did this "easy fix" on my 1999 Camry.
Lift trunk lid and pull away carpet covering the tail light. Retain plastic pins that hold carpet in place. Be prepared to have your knuckles scraped by the carpet as you work.
On the 1999 Camry, this was NOT a tool-less fix. You could reach in, turn the tail light socket a quarter turn and them remove it without tools. You then simply pulled the bulb straight out (it was bulb size 904 on my 1999) and plug the new bulb straight in.
NOW... the rub. Although the bulb/socket came out easily, we found it impossible to get the correct angle to replace the bulb and socket without smashing the bulb. Two intelligent adults tried for 30 minutes.
So... step 3. Easy but requires tools. Get your socket set (I couldn't find the right socket, so I used a pair of needlenose vice grips--worked fine). There are two threaded bolts with nuts in the interior access area for all of the light sockets. Unscrew nuts, retain. Now look on the exterior edge of the tail light. There will be one more solid grey nut. Remove and retain.
Step 4: You can now loosen the tail light cover and pull it out enough to allow you to safely insert the bulb/socket assembly. Gently turn it until you can insert the socket, and then give it a quarter turn to lock it in place.
Step 5: Push tail light cover back into place making sure the two interior bolts are in place.
Step 6. Replace and tighten the three nuts.
So, not a 30 second fix. More like 10 minutes. Easy, but a pain, and requires a tool, but truly, if this clumsy 6 months pregnant woman can do it outside in the dark... so can you.

Tail light installation


1. Use a "star" screwdriver to unscrew the two black screws on the outside.
On the inside if there is a canvas remove this by gently unscrewing the two black plastic screws

2. Use a No. 8 spanner to remove the nut on the inside.

3. Pull gently the whole casing containing all the rear lights(brake/turn
signal/reverse/blinkers)

4. Since you already oend the casing, you might as well make sure the rest ofthe bulbs are good.

5. Determine which bulb needs replacement by switching your lights on and have someone step on the brakes for you.( with the ignition turned on)

6. Remember not to lose the screws Replace everything as it was
