I have a 2002 lesabre and suspect it is the same. The light assemblies are bolted to the car from the inside of the trunk. Mine has three sections. Left side of trunk, across the back of the trunk and right side of the trunk. Open the trunk and look thru the small holes in the back for nuts that hold on the sections. They may require a deep socket to reach. Also not all the nuts need to be loosened. Trial and error. Once the nuts are removed the light assemble is freed from the car. Don't let it fall and scratch the car. The wires will help hold it in place. The light holders usually turn/twist and pull out. A little bit of a pain, but not too difficult. Again the deep sockets are probably required.

How do I fix the brake light on a 1997 Buick LeSaber.


I just did a 97 Regal yesterday and yes you are correct...the strip must be removed to gain access...depending on model you may have to remove the cushioning panel (piece of upholstery panel) on the inside of trunk lid...follow this video URL as it explains the removal better in video form than written..basically remove the 7 10mm nuts holding panel on, lower trunk lid a little and wiggle panel off, twist socket and remove to gain bulb access..install is reverse procedure ...Regal, Century and LeSabre are all same idea/setup Tail Light Change 1997 2005 Buick Century 2004 Buick Century Custom 3 1L V6

All my lamp indicator lights keep flashing. blickers work. when you step on break the break lights work. but when driving no tail lights


First replace the tail light bulbs. The tail light and brake lights are different filaments in the same bulb. it is very possible for the tail lights to go out while brake lights still work. And somtimes the tail lights can blow out together.
If you change the bulbs and still dont work then look for other problems.

Need to replace tail light bulb on 1996 Buick Century


Inside the trunk, under the carpet behind the tail lights will be a whole bunch of small plastic nuts, running from one side of the car to the other. Take all of these plastic nuts off, and the whole tail light assembly will come off in one large piece. Find the bulb you need to replace, and reassemble
