Pull the 2 rubber plugs and the seats they are pushed into out, then on the front side on the light (by the back door not the hatch) very gently place a flat head screw driver between the light and the body panel and pull the handle on the screw driver toward the back of the car so you dont scratch the outside of the body panel... the light should pop out of the two rubber seats it sets in

You have no clue of the complexity of these systems , controlled by the TIPM - totally integrated power module . Your best bet would be to take it to the dealer . Recall on TIPM . You do not have the knowlede to fix this .

Most American cars are designed to turn off front park lights when you turn on head lamps but not rear tail lights. Your tail lights are wired to park lights. Trace wires back to switch and connect correctly.

I am including a couple of illustrations to better help with this replacement.
You will first need toe open the tail gate. then next to the tail light on the inside edge where the tail gate meets the seal you will see to plastic screw covers ( if still there) or two screws. You will need to remove these two screws , once removed the tail light will come out by lightly pulling outwards. Then simply depress the thumb clip on the bulb holder and remove.

How to change head light bulbs on a dodge caliber

Park the Dodge Caliber on a flat paved or concrete surface. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the side opposite the headlight you are replacing. In other words, if you are replacing the left headlight, turn the wheel all the way to the right. Apply the parking brake and release the hood latch.
  • Step 2 Place a wheel chock behind one of the rear tires.
  • Step 3 Open the hood. This is to allow some light to reach down into the engine compartment.
  • Step 4 Raise the front quarter panel of the side you need to replace the headlight on with the floor jack and place the jack stand under the front frame rail on that side.
  • Step 5 Remove the fender well plugs using the plastic plug puller tool. You do not have to remove the entire fender well cover, but the more plugs you remove, the more access it will give you to the headlight assembly.
  • Step 6 Unplug the headlight switch. Make sure you are unplugging the headlight which will be the inboard plug.
  • Step 7 Turn the headlight bezel a quarter turn counterclockwise and extract the bulb and bezel.
  • Step 8 Insert the new headlight into the bezel, being careful not to touch the glass bulb.
  • Step 9 Insert the bezel and headlight into the headlight assembly and turn a quarter turn clockwise to lock it into place.
  • Step 10 Plug the wire connector into the headlight. This would be a good time to get up and go test the light to make sure it's working.

    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.
