Yes, u r correct there are only 2 screws. After taking them off the top part remains intact after taking them out, it almost seems like the top part is stuck. I also had that problem and was afraid to pull on it for fear of breaking it. What I did is, I called the dealership where I got the car and spoke to the mechanic. He verified that there are only 2 screws so I tried again. This time I got a larger screw driver and carefully lodged it underneath the top part and slowly eased up and outwards until the top part eventually popped out. Good luck!

    There's a screw that goes in from under the weather seal for the hatchback. On the interior of the car, there's a plastic wing-nut thing which you will find by poking your hand through a hole in a plastic panel. Undo these and the taillight assembly will be loose, but not free. The third fastener is a pin that gets pressed into a receptacle in the car. Pry the assembly free by sliding a slot screwdriver between the light assy and the window until you can pry off of the car's metal exterior. Gently turn the screwdriver and that light ought to pop out. Then it's easy street.

Replace rear brake light.


Open rear hatch. You'll see 2 black screws on the brake light assembly. Remove these 2 screws and pull the assembly out. There, you'll see wires attached to a long grey strip which holds the bulbs. There are 2 screws on each side of the top and bottom of this strip. Remove these and this plastic strip will pull straight out with the bulbs attached to it. You now have access to all 3 bulbs to replace with new ones.

Hi there,

Firstly, remove the four screws on the bottom of the license plate light assembly using a Phillips screwdriver. Then pull the license plate light cover out away from the rear of the car. Pull the bulb forward and pull it straight out of the wiring socket.

A press the new bulb into place until it is secure. Push the bulb and wiring assembly back up inside the light assembly and replace the license plate light cover. Replace the four screws that secure the light cover and tighten them with a Phillips screwdriver. Finally, turn on the lights to test the new bulb.

Hope this helps...

How to change the brake light on a 2007 chevy tahoe the rear one


Open the rear hatch and locate the area behind the light you wish to change. You will see two screws that hold the assembly in place. Remove those two screws and push the pins through and the whole assembly will pop out allowing you to access the bulb by twisting the connection and pulling it out. Installation is the reverse. Good luck.

There should be 2 screws holding the lenses on for the hatch light, remove those and cover comes off. The plate lights, access them under the rear bumper, they twist and pull out, then just pull the bulb out the connector. The running board light, under board, which will take the light assembly out, or a small flat head screwdriver, pop the lens off the top of board.

How do you remove the rear light cover in order to replace the turn signal bulb in a 2007 Ford Focus hatchback?


Open the hatch and look to the side of the housing, there should be a tab sticking out of the side of the assembly with a screw securing it in place (It's between the trim seal and the assembly). Then in the inside of the hatch, look up to where the assembly would be, and there should be a long cylindrical nut (it's made of plastic and will have a metal center for the threads). Remove this and then you can pull the entire assembly off. You won't have a lot of room though because the wires are relatively short.

Change rear signal bulb on 2002 ford focus wagon


Open the rear tailgate There are 2 screws that hold light housing in place.. Remove the screws then pull the housing outwards till the clip behind it springs. You then need to knock the housing sideways (outwards) to free the 2 prongs that attach housing to the car body.
Unclip the rear housing from the back of the light unit & change the bulb.
