How do i remove the driver side rear tail light assembly on a 2000 chrysler voyger


Instructions

Shift your Voyager into "Park," set the parking brake and pull the keys out of the ignition.

Open the liftgate to access the rear storage compartment.

Remove the two screws from the inboard side of the taillight housing and place them in your pocket for safekeeping.

Insert a screwdriver between the outboard side of the rear combination light assembly and the van's body, and then pry the assembly loose. Avoid scratching your van's exterior paint.

Twist the turn signal bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the light assembly.

Pull the bulb out of the socket and dispose of it immediately to prevent it from becoming a hazard. Then, install the new bulb in the socket.

Reinstall the socket and activate the turn signal. If it lights up, screw the cover back into place and close the liftgate

Trying to replace rear turn signal light by following manual...which I can usually do..however we can't seem to get past removing the 2 screws...it has proven very difficult to find the clips that it says...


They are on a rail, after removing the screws it should slide towards you. Since it just wiggles, there are small plastic studs that keep it in place. I you need to pull it towards the front of the car or 90deg out from the front of the van.

Replacement of rear outside tail light assembly


If you're asking how do you change a taillight bulb, then follow this procedure:

Open the trunk lid.

Disconnect the connectors from the taillights (taillight bulb connectors are visible by looking inside the trunk at the back of the tail lamps.) There may be an interior trunk trim panel that you have to take off but in most cases its just a series of thumb screws that hold them in.


Brake Lights/Taillights: 21/5 W

Rear Turn Signal Light: 21 W

Back-up Light: 21 W

Rear Side Marker Light: 5 W


Turn the bulb sockets 45 º counterclockwise to remove the bulbs.


If you're removing the taillamps with the bumper off there are 3 nuts and screws that hold the taillight to the rear panel of the car that have to come off from the inside of the trunk.
Remove the nuts and screws, then remove the taillight.

hope that answers your question

2004 A4 Tail Light replacement.


If you are still looking for the resolution, it's really pretty simple. It is highly recommended that you remove one light assembly at a time, thus allowing you to have a good guide when repositioning the assembly back on the vehicle body. Yes, the only way to get to the burned out bulb in the taillight is to remove the whole darn thing! The bulb burns out every 4-5 months, so I have become good at it...Here goes:

1. Open trunk. Look for small (3" diameter) cutouts in the fabric panel in the trunk liner. They are identical and appear next to the taillight assemblies, on the side, not behind the taillight.
2. Gently use a flat blade screwdriver and pry them open. These cutouts are attached to the inner trunk liner fabric, so be gentle.
3. Notice the phillips head screw inside the opening. Unscrew it slowly, making sure it doesn't drop between the chassis and the trunk liner. Remove the screw.
4. Place soft towel on the outside of the car under the taillight assembly, to prevent scratching the car bumper.
5. Gently grab both sides of the taillight assembly from the outside and pull away from the car (rear direction. Be careful not to pull too hard, or the wiring harness behind the assembly may break.
6. You can now access all lamp in the taillight assembly. Change the bulbs as needed. Also, if you can vacuum or clean the dirt on the chassis as well as on the back side of the taillight assembly, you'll feel better later :-)
7. Placing the taillight assembly back in its place is a bit tricky. It seems to go back easily, but the rubber lining nearest to the trunk opening and where the phillips head screw is, must be placed exactly right or water will leak behind the assembly.
8. Screw in the phillips head screw, but don't overtighten it. You will need to open it every 4-5 months to replace another bulb (its an Audi-VW plan to sell more bulbs).
9. Snap the trunk liner caps back in place and voila, you have done it.
