Pop your trunk, and you'll see two Torx screws on the side of the tail light assembly. Use your T-15 screwdriver on these.

The tail light assembly should easily slide out at this point. You'll see four connectors: a wiring harness, reverse light, turn signal, and brake light. Disconnect the proper connector, and you'll see the burned-out bulb. Give it a yank, and it will pop right out.

A service garage stated that my Saturn Ion 2 which has 39,000 miles needs a brake system flush=$99.95 and a fuel induction service=$139.95. Is this standard operating maintenance service?


The brake system should be flushed, every 2 years or when brake service is needed. As for the Fuel Injection Service, NO.... just fill up your fuel tank and add a bottle of Chevron TECHRON fuel system cleaner in every 3 months.

Trying to change a rear light bulb and dont know how to open it up


Rear Turn Signal, Brake & Parking Lights The taillamps, stoplamps and rear turn signals lamps are all incorporated into the rear taillamps. The taillamps are lit whenever the parking lamps or headlamps are in operation. The rear turn signal lamps flash with the front turn signal lamps whenever a turn is indicated with the turn signal/headlamp dimmer switch. The stoplamps light whenever the brake pedal is depressed and the stoplamp switch is closed.

The trim panel is likely held in place with retainers like this. Back out the screw to release tension on the pin legs and remove the fastener

The taillamp is retained by plastic wingnuts

Remove the plastic wing nuts from the taillamp housing

Remove the taillamp housing from the vehicle to service the light bulbs


  1. Open the rear compartment (trunk).
  2. If equipped, unhook the convenience net that stretches between the taillamps. It is attached to hooks molded into the plastic taillamp assembly retaining wingnuts. Loosen the rear compartment trim panel. It is retained by plastic pins with a screw in the center. Back out the screw to release any tension on the plastic pin legs, and pull the trim (thin carpet-like material) for access to the taillamps.
  3. Remove the plastic taillamp assembly retaining wingnuts.
  4. Remove the taillamp assembly from the vehicle and service the light bulbs as required.
  5. Installation is the reverse of the removal process.
  6. Test the lights for correct operation.
