Basicly, remove bulbs, disconnect wiring harness from bulbs. Remove nuts that hold lamp in and replace with new fixture. Should go ahead and replace buls while you are in there.

Testimonial: "My son backed into a pole and broke the lens on the drivers side tail light on my 2001 Hyudai Santa Fe. I hven no experience with replacing anything except the gas! I also don't have the $ to spend at a body shop. This info was great! I will attempt the replacement! The info on purchasing the part was also very helpful! Thanks a bunch! Nancy Wiggins"

How to replace brake light bulb audi a4 1.8t 2002


Start by opening the trunk lid. On the sides of the trunk, just beside where the trunk lid sits when closed there is a circle cap on either side. Remove the cap it is the same material as the trunk side trim (fuzzy carpet) then there will be a screw set into the hole that you just uncovered. You can use either a philips screw driver or an 8mm socket and remove the screw/bolt. you may need to reach in with a set of needle nose pliers to remove the screw after it is loosened all the way. Once the screw is removed grab the tail lamp assembly from the inside and twist the tail lamp out of the holding pins located on the side edge of the tail lamp. The whole light will come off of the body in your hands. Once the tail lamp assembly is out there is an access panel on the back side where all the bulbs are installed. Depress the two holding tabs on the sides and carefully remove the bulb holder. Then replace any blown bulbs and reinstall.

INSTALL THE DRIVERS SIDE TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLY


Save yourself some money and look for a replacement light on ebay or a junk yard. To remove the light open the back hatch and there should be two bolts or screws holding the light in. Remove those screws and slide the light out (may take a little effort to get out). If the body damage is not too bad call a paintless dent repair specialist and see if they can take care of it for a fraction of the cost a body shop would charge........Good Luck

Legacy wagon tail light replacement


The one thing youll find with subaru's is that they like to put nuts in funny places that are hard to access. There are either 3 or 4 nuts holding the tail-light assembly in place, which means youll need to take out most of the inner panels to access the others. You should not need a sealant unless the rubber seal is done for or there is water inside the car. Hope this helps

How replace break light bulb in on a4 2005


Replacement of any bulb in the Tail-light assembly is easier then one thinks.

First thing you need to do is gain access to the trunk area. At the top of
the tail-light area inside the trunk is a small circle that needs to be
opened to expose the bolt that you need to remove.

WARNING: Be careful not to loose this bolt or you are going to have to take
apart your trunk interior to retrieve it.

After the bolt is removed the Tail-light assembly will pull out as follows;
Left side: pull out the right side of the assembly
Right side: pull out the left side of the assembly.
The out side of the assembly is held in place by 2 or 3 small nipples.

There will only be one cable that is connected to the assembly. This does not
have to be removed unless you really want to. On both sides of the assembly
there are 2 clips that hold the light plate to the break light lens. After
the clips are loosened the whole light bulb assembly can be removed and the
bulbs replaced.


Restoring the Break-light assembly.

After you have replaced your bulbs and re attached the the bulb assembly, you
will have to first fit the nipples on the outer side of the assembly then
push the inter side into place. Replace the bolt and tighten. You are done.
