Question about 2003 Toyota Tundra

1 Answer

I can't figure out how to get my 2003 Tundra taillight assembly off . I have removed the two bolts inside the tailgate area but it is still attached to the fender on the other side of the assembly . I have pulled on it fairly hard both sideways and straight back with no luck . I am afraid if I pull any harder I will break it . Please help !! Thanks , Richard Persike

Unscrew the screws that are securing the brake light cover to the body of the Tundra. Pull the brake light cover off the body of the Tundra. Place the screws in the brake light cover and set it on the bed of the truck. Pull the burned-out light bulb out of the light fixture and discard it. Insert the new brake light bulb into the light fixture. Pump the Tundra's brakes to make sure the new bulb is working correctly. Replace the brake light cover on the body of the Tundra and replace the screws.

Need to know how to replace rear taillight bulb.


You'll need a phillips head screwdriver and possibly a needle-nose pliers.

Open your tailgate and look near the taillight assembly. With the tailgate open, you'll see 2 phillips head screws holding the taillight assembly in place. Remove the screws and pull out and toward the side of the car. You'll see the wiring harness that plugs into the taillight body and three plastic disks that have a raised plastic tab. Twist the tab counter-clockwise for about 1/4 turn and the disk/socket will come out with the bulb attached. The socket may be difficult to twist by hand, so you may need a needle-nose pliers to grip the tab lengthwise. I suggest replacing all of the bulbs in the assembly at once, even if they're not all bad so that you won't have to do it again when another bulb inevitably burns out.

After you have the bulb(s) replaced, reassemble the taillight and reattach in the reverse order of disassembly.

How to change a tail light bulb in a honda element


Open the hatch and the tailgate.

Remove the two mounting screws with a Phillips-head screwdriver, and remove the taillight assembly from the body by pulling it back.

Determine which of the three bulbs is burned out: brake/taillight, turn signal light or backup light. (I assume you’ve already determined this)

Remove the socket by turning it one-quarter turn counterclockwise.

Pull the bulb straight out of its socket.

Push the new bulb straight into the socket until it bottoms.

Reinstall the socket into the light assembly by turning it clockwise until it locks.

Test the lights to make sure the new bulb is working.

When reinstalling the taillight assembly, first place the two pins in the holes in place. Tighten the two mounting bolts.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Tailgate latch will not lock when closed


There are two Possibilites with this issue ... Either the latches are bound or rusted and can be lubricated with lithium grease after cleaning or the plastic retaining clips may have broken inside your tailgate. To locate these, remove the three bolts holding in the latch assembly and inspect the clips attached to the two control rods that will latch/release your tailgate. I have found spraying white litium grease every three months into the latches of my tailgate has eliminated the same problem on my truck.

Brake light bulb replacement.


Remove panel in trunk (round one on each side) reach inside unscrew toggle bolt then remove the entire taillight assembly, may have to push from inside. When you have the taillight assembly out you will see where the bulb is on the back of the assembly, remove and replace with new bulb. Put taillight assembly back in, replace toggle bolt make sure it is tight and replace panel. It is a pain the first time but I have done this 3 or 4 times it gets easier.

Tail light bulb burned out, can't remove ***'y. to replace.


Remove the 2 bolts as in the user manual. Slowly wiggle the tail light top then bottom as you pull straight back. Not slowly. There are 2 pin clips attaching it to the rear quarter panel.
