Toyota '94 Cover of high-mounted stop light won't come off

My '94 Toyota Camry sedan has a burned out high-mounted, rear-window stop light. In instructions to change the bulb, my owners' manual shows a diagram of the covered high-mounted light with an arrow pointing toward the front of the car. No words. I have tried sliding the cover off and failed to budge it. I cannot fit my fingers between the light and the rear window to get leverage. Gingerly, I tried prying off the cover but felt little give. I stopped because I feared cracking the cover. Can anyone rescue me from my feelings of being an idiot? Thanks for trying.

The cover under the rear windshield DOES come off and you need to finagle it a bit to get it to come loose. Try to push in on both sides while lifting up and pulling towards you or pushing on the front while pushing up. There are a couple of plastic clips that hold it on, but once you get any one of them to come loose the whole thing will come off, promise!!

Testimonial: "Pressing both thumbs on the front of the cover worked in seconds. Clear and fast directions. Very grateful."

Need to change wire to the fuel cap 94 camry station wagon


the tether prevents removal.
are you going to use a real toy cap? Many after market caps are missing the tether, so cut it off.
the tether goes in to a hole. and if not slotted will not come
out unless the mount is removed,
if there are no screws seen there, that means it mounts from the rear.
and that means gaining access to the back side, and that depends on the unsaid body. wagon, liftback ,sedan, coupe. sure.
surely you know access means opening trunk and seeing that
or pulling panel cards, to see same.

Rear stop lights (lower) won't come on when pedal depressed, BUT the high mount stop light does come on. Changed the bulbs - no go, the old ones did not look bad. All other rear lights work fine. ...


If all bulbs are known to be good, check fuse for brake lights (stop lamp fuse). If fuse is ok, go to next step
Next step- Does this Camry have a display in the instrument panel that indicates when a brake light is out? (not sure, check owner's manual)
If so, you may have a defective brake lamp sensor. Its mounted in the trunk on the right side. It may be blue, black, brown or yellow and may need to be unsnapped or unscrewed to remove. It will say on its cover what it is. You will need the number off of it to get the proper replacement. They run about $400.

Just bought my 94 jeep cherokee & the screen in the middle consol continues me beep and flash ''rear lamp failure''


the driver information center(DIC) is telling you one or more of your rear light bulbs has failed. it could be a tail light,stop light,center high mount stop light,turn signal or license plate light. have someone in the vehicle turn the lights on and hit the brakes and turn signals so you can see which one is burned out.

HOW MANY BULBS ARE IN THE REAR LIGHTS (SUCH AS FOR PARKING, REVERSE, BRAKE). IF WARNING LIGHT ON PANEL IS ONE, WOULD I SEE A BURNT OUT BULB?


You may or may not see a burnt out bulb. The dash light can also mean there's a current issue (ie none of the bulbs are lighting)

2 reverse bulbs
2 license plate bulbs
2 turn signal bulbs
2 rear sidemarker bulbs (side of your tail light assembly)
2 running light bulbs which are the same as your stop light bulbs in the tail light assembly
1 to 6 high mount stop light bulbs (if they're in the window and varies on models)
1 strip of LED brake lights if you have a spoiler
