Once you have the screws out, the whole housing unit will have to be pulled out. Just the lens won't come off. Sometimes you will have to give it a slight hard pull to get it out. If you still have trouble, check out youtube on how to remove tail light.

How do I replace the brake light bulb

1.Open the tailgate.
2. Locate the plastic plugs attached to the brake light housing (on the right side of the driver side light, on the left of the passenger side).
3. Carefully pry up the plugs with a screwdriver or other flat tool (I believe there are two).
4. The light should be free to pull out (pull toward the rear of the vehicle). You should see two torx screws.
5. Remove the bolts and pull the housing away from the tail light lens.
6. Twist and pull to remove the correct bulb.
7. Insert the new bulb into the holder and replace the housing.
8. Verify that the replacement bulb(s) are working.
9. Reinstall the torx screws and place the assembly back into it proper location on the vehicle.
10. Push the plugs back into the holes and verify that it is secure.
11. Close the tailgate and check for proper fitment.

Replacing brake light

Hi Edward-
The top brake light lens is held on with two size T25 Torx screws. You need a suitable size torx screw driver to remove (and again later replace the assembly) the two screws. Once the screws are removed (do not lose these), you can remove the entire lens assembly. You'll see the wires leading to the plastic bulb socket. The bulb socket twists off the assembly like a bayonet. Once the bulb socket is off, you'll be able to remove the bulb simply by pulling it straight out. Replace the bad bulb by inserting the new bulb and then reassemble your third brake light in the reverse order you removed it. Enjoy!

How do you replace brake light 1996 cadillac deville

Ok, get a t15 torx bit screw driver and remove the rear red light assembly by removing the outline plate that holds it in place.

Pull out the assembly rearward, and then determine which bulb is out by having someone operate the brake.

The sockets are generally removed from the back of the red lense by depressing a tab and rotating counterclockwise.

Remove the bulb, by turning and then pulling out the bulb.

Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

open the hatch and look at the side of the lens should be black and plastic. you'll find two TORX screws holding the lens on. remove the screws and give a good tug straight back on the lens. STRAIGHT BACK. (failure to pull in the correct direction could result in a broken retaining pin). it feels much more difficult than really needs to be. have faith. it'll go. good luck. by the way the bulb comes straight out of the socket. but the socket disconnects from the board by twisting it. be gentle here. test bulb for proper operation before reinstalling lens onto body.

Replace rear window brake light bulb

I just had to do this, and it isn't all that easy or quick. First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits. (The screws are permanently attached to the lens housing so will not drop into obscurity when the nuts are removed). After removing the nuts, GENTLY work the lens housing away from the car. You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.

You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.

Just reverse these directions to reassemble the housing.

Need to replace rear brake light bulb

I experienced the same problem! After removal of the two screws, apply pushing pressure from the inside out with one hand on the outside of the lens for stability. The lens should push straight out.. There are 2 straight pins that are inserted into a plastic retainer that holds the assembly in place. Good luck

Stop light out

For the brake light open the rear hatch and check beside the tail light. I believe ther is 2 phillips head screws right where the light meets the rear hatch on the body panel. remove them and gently yet firmly pull the lens assembly from the corner of the rear body panel. Squeeze the clips on the back of the socket and twist to remove the socket from the lens. Push gently on the bulb and turn carefully to remove light from the socket replace the light and reverse removal procedure to install.

PT Cruiser Brake Light

The bulb in the rear light has burned out and to replace it follow these instructions: 1) go to your owner's manual to find out the part number. You can find and purchase the replacement bulb at Target, any auto parts store and even at Walmart for under $4.00; 2) pop open the trunk door; 3) get a phillips screw driver and unscrew the 2 screws holding the rear brake light fixture to your car body; 4) as soon as you turn over the fixture you'll see where to pull out the burned out bulb and replace it with the new one(s). Good luck!
