How to change a tail light bulb on 2008 malibu? Not the version with the wingnuts, but the "Up Model" version that says call the dealer.



  1. Step 1 Determine how the bulb is accessed: On some models the lens (the red or white plastic part over the light) must be unscrewed from the outside, and on others the bulb is accessible only from inside the trunk. If there are no screws on the lens, you can assume that the bulb must be replaced from inside. Usually there will be a plastic cover that must be removed in order to access the bulb. There may be tabs, screws or small knobs that hold this plastic cover in place.
  2. Step 2 replace-tail-brake-1.2-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep2 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a00/02/i7/replace-tail-brake-1.2-800X800.jpg'); }); Unscrew the lens on the outside, or take off the plastic cover from inside the trunk, to reveal the bulb.
  3. Step 3 replace-tail-brake-1.3-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep3 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a00/02/i7/replace-tail-brake-1.3-800X800.jpg'); }); Unscrew the bulb. You'll have to push in and turn at the same time.
  4. Step 4 Take the bulb with you to the auto supply store to help you find an exact duplicate.
  5. Step 5 replace-tail-brake-1.5-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep5 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a00/02/i7/replace-tail-brake-1.5-800X800.jpg'); }); Clean the connection with a wire brush and/or wipe it clean with a rag if there's any corrosion.
  6. Step 6 replace-tail-brake-1.6-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep6 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a00/02/i7/replace-tail-brake-1.6-800X800.jpg'); }); Screw the new bulb into the empty socket. Again, you'll have to push in and turn simultaneously. Line up the tiny raised bumps on the base of the bulb in order to screw it in.
  7. Step 7 Replace the lens or the plastic cover.
  8. Step 8 replace-tail-brake-1.8-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep8 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a00/02/i7/replace-tail-brake-1.8-800X800.jpg'); }); Test your work by stepping on the brakes and turning on the headlights while a friend watches the new bulb to make sure it lights up.

How to change rear tail light on 2006 honda odyssey


Lift the rear door, remove the rear tail light lense, replace the bulb and replace the tail light on the car.... once the screws have been removed, be sure all of them are removed,,, the lens/light cover may have to be pried off with a flat blade screw driver.... place a folded paper towel of something else to protect the paint.... before prying...... Check the owners manual for instructions.

How do you replace break lights in 2007 Dodge Caliber?


Look inside the rear hatch area near the very rear of the vehicle. You should find a removable panel near the brake light housing. After you carefully remove the panel, look for some plastic wingnuts that hold the light housing in, and remove them, you should not need any tools to do this. After the nuts are removed you should be able to gently remove the tail light assembly from the rear of the car. Becareful not to damage the wiring. Now look at the back side of the tail lamp assembly and look for a locking tab on the light socket. Depress the locking tab and twist the light socket about a quarter turn, then pull the light socket away from the light housing. Pull the bulb out and replace it. Then reassemble and your done.

thode screws hold the lens or the light assembly? Allow for the whole tail light to come out and the bulb plug will be accessible. I never had the privilage. But how the lens fits will tell you. If the lens goes overthe edges, the whole unit comes out, lens is sealed. Good luck
