Replace Right Quarter Panel Tail Light Lens.

Can you tell me the steps in disassembling the old and installing the new tail light lens. Or would it be better to let the dealer install it.

This is not difficult. but is this the Taillight in the quarter panel or in the trunk lid? If quarter panel you need to remove the panel across the back of the trunk so you can see the back of the light. There will be four nuts and a connector to remove and the light will come out. Look at your new light first and you will see what you are looking for once your in there. If this helps please reply and good luck

Look in the trunk, Pull back the carpet where the light would be. The carpet may be held in place by 2-3 big wing nuts. Once you remove these and pull the carpet back, you will see where your tail light assembly is bolted. The whole assembly will come out, take out the bulbs/harness. Then re-install your new assembly. It really takes about 3-5 min to do and no special tools.

2014 Newest Automatic V8 X6 Key Cutting Machine
Purchase a replacement tail light for your vehicle. You can find a broad selection by visiting the website listed in Resources or by going to your local automotive parts store.
Locate the tail light. You can find it on the rear of your car, located on the left and right sides. The lens color will vary depending on the type of vehicle that you have, but in most cases it will be red and will have red lights that light up when you press the breaks.
Remove the screws that are located on the corners of the plastic lens and lift off the lens. You will now see the bulb.
Place the new tail light in the place where you removed the old tail light. Make sure that you are putting the new tail light on right-side up. The screws will not line up and the tail light will not fit properly if it is upside down.
Replace each one of the screws.

How to remove tail light lens on 2000 ford contour SE


Open the trunk. Pull back the trunk lining where it covers the tail light access inside the quarter panel. Remove the lamp sockets for the turn/stop and backup lights, and remove the screws that hold the lens in place. The lens will then pull out from the quarter panel. Installation is the reverse: make sure the rubber gasket is in place properly.

How do i change rear off side quarter glass


Access to the tail light lens should be through panels in the rear corners of the vehicle. Remove the panel and you can remove the tail light cluster and the fasteners that attach the lens to the body work. This is the position on most sedans, unless, like on pick-ups, the tail light lenses have screws which allow the lenses to be from the outside.

I need to change the brake and tail light on my 1996 toyota corolla . I would need a manuel on that please.


The steps to replace the brake light bulb on a 1996 Toyota Corolla:

The bulb needed is type 1157. After opening the trunk you need to remove the trunk liner on the side (right side for this example)where the brake light bulb is out. The plastic capture grommets hold the liner in place. Once the grommets are removed there is a nut (10mm) that is a bright brass-like color. This needs to be removed. Then on the outside of the trunk on the tail-light lens left side there are two nuts black in color (10mm) they need to be removed. Now the fun starts .... you needto slide the whole assembly back. You will note two black plastic posts on the rear quarter-panel, do not remove these ... these are used to hold the tail-light assembly in place since on the inside of the tail light assembly there are two rod-like protrusions that slide into these brackets. So.... remove the screws and wiggle the assembly back and it "should" slide back so that you can get at the bulb socket hat you twist to remove from the assembly. Now the bulb is visible and you reverse the order of steps to get it all back together .... a miserable design!
