Generally, the cover, lens, and reflector assembly are all one piece (glued together) and you must replace the entire assembly. I would check with an auto recycler (junkyard) for this, as I'm sure the dealer wants a small fortune for it.
If you open the trunk and (if needed) remove the liner, as if you are going to replace the bulbs, you will be able to see the fasteners around the perimeter of the reflector. They may be screws, they may be some kind of clip or push-pull fastener, depends on the model. Remove all the bulb sockets (label them for the correct position) then remove the fasteners, remove the lens assembly (usually pushes out toward the back of the car), then reverse to install the new one.
You may need some sealant around the perimeter of the lens assembly (to keep water out of the trunk), you can use kitchen and bath silicone caulk.

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.

Tail light lens replace

Not clear on make or model. Generally the tail light assembly is accessible from the trunck. May have to unscrew or remove bracket to gain access. Most lens covers are held in place by series of clips. Carefully remove clips and the existing lens should come out. May need second person to position replacement lens cover from outside while you secure from inside trunck.

Tail lights do not work on a 2000 lexus rx 300 bulbs are fine, all other lights work fine

You may have a fried fuse. Look in your owners manual to find out which fuse it is in the fuse box diagram. If that is the problem make sure to use the same amperage fuse to replace the burned one with. I fried fuse is usually a sign that you have a short somewhere. But they can also fry for other reasons such as excess moisture somewhere. Sometimes they just burn from age and fatigue. It may solve it to just replace the fuse, but if there really is a short, the new fuse will fry too.

Tail light burned out. How to get tail light cover off to replace it?

There are 2 screws holding the light assembly. You need a special star shaped screw driver to take them out. Then the assembly pulls out straight back. Next, the cover plate comes off exposing the bulbs. If I remember correctly, it is a 3057 bulb.

How do i replace the tail light bulb

pop the trunk and look at the trim directly behind the light assembly. If you're lucky, then it'll have an opening for you to take out the bulbs from inside.

Otherwise (most likely with NA Cars), you'll have to remove the screws holding the taillight assembly down and pull it off the car to get to the sockets of the bulbs
