I tried to search all over the places on internet but to no avail. So did it on my own and the result was successful.

I replaced the passenger side rear tail light assembly of my Toyota Camry 2007. The method is same for the late models till 2011 no matter what the side is.

Its very easy to unscrew 3 nuts inside the trunk after removing the only portion of cover that covers the light but this is not it, there is a bracket under the light assembly which actually holds the edge of bumper and in order to pull it out of the bumper, bumper has to be partially taken out or loosen out.
To began the process I took the wheel out to unscrew 2 screws located right behind the wheel on the lining of bumper cover holding the mud flapper at the same time, if you have small philips screw driver of approx 2" length you might not need to remove the entire wheel. please see the image 1 as I took the pictures while fixing the light up and that too all alone.

There are 2 more screws to be taken out one holds the flap and other holds the bumper cover, all need to be taken out to bring the flap apart.

Now there is a most critical and important part for the entire job, after loosing the screws and after pulling the flap down there is a hidden bolt which will come with small sized socket (usually available in basic sHow do I replace a tail light assembly on a 2007 - 10_14_2011_1_25_17_am.jpg>10How do I replace a tail light assembly on a 2007 - 10_14_2011_1_27_20_am.jpgclass=

How do you replace a passenger side tail light assembly on a 2002 toyota solora

i believe with the trunk open,move the trunk liner out of the way(sometimes held with plastic wing nuts)behind this you should see more wing nuts.remove these and the tail light assembly should pull out to give you access to the bulb sockets to replace them.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the bulb of the rear tail lights. If it's faulty it won't work properly. The bulb is a double contact 12 volts. Have it replaced and you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I need to replace the tail/brake light but don't know how to get behind the cover without breaking it

Open the trunk and remove the two inner screws. The screws are located on the inner part of the tail light assembly. Once the screws are removed, you must pull hard but gently on the tail light. You will now have access to all bulbs. Hopefully this helps

1994 Toyota Camry Tailight Out

They are indeed accessible from the back of the trunk. In your model year there are two or three plastic pins holding the carpet to the metal so you will not see the bulb and wires. Pull the pins out with pliers (might use a bit of force) and you shall uncover the secrete wires leading to the bulbs. Screw the bad one out and you can get a replacement from a parts store.
