Open the hatch (or trunk if it's a convertible) and peal back the back the trim against the rear most panel. You'll be able to see a lot of large plastic wing nuts. Unscrew them and pull the lense straight out.

I need to know how to access the bulbs in the taillight assembly on a 2004 ford explorer


Hi there,

Open the rear liftgate. On the inner edge of each tail light assembly you will find two screws. Remove the two screws. Now grasp the plastic tail light assembly firmly, and pull it strongly backwards. It is held in place with three spring-loaded clamps. Once the clamps release, it will pop out.

There are two lamp harnesses attached to the tail light assembly - one for the reverse lamp, and one for the running/brake/turn signal lamp. To remove either lamp harness from the tail light assembly, turn the harness 1/4 turn counter-clockwise, then gently pull it out of the assembly. The light bulb can be easily pulled from its socket in the lamp harness once removed from the assembly. Installation is reverse of removal.

Glad to be of help...

Need help for rear tail light assembly on my 2003 trailblazer


Most of the time you can simply remove the tail light assembly from the car pretty easy and just a few screws. If it sdoes not have the screws going through the front of the housing then its rear mount and must be done by lifting the tailgate to get access. Once in the vehicle you should beable to remove the plastic housing covering up the assembly from the inside. Remove the 3-4 screws or bolts and the tail light assembly. Install the new one just the reverse. Pretty easy just take your time.
