My tail light went out in my 04 kia rio and i cant get to the bulb to change it

In order to change the bulb you must dismantle the tail-light assembly from the vehicle. In common cases, this is an easy procedure. First, open the trunk. Second, look behind the tail-light and look for any screws that may be in the bottom of the trunk behind the tail-light assembly (some carpeting may hide screws). Third, unscrew any screws, once all visible screws are off, and the assembly won't easily come off, there may be push in connectors, if so give the assembly a hard tug back and the assembly should pop off. Fourth, you will see the stock bulb connector wiring with the bulbs, simply turn the bad bulb by the fitting 1/4 counter clockwise and it should come out of the assembly. Fifth, simply pull out the bulb from the adapter, and push in the new one, the install procedure is simply reverse in steps. Good Luck.

I've removed the three hex nuts, trying to remove the tail light from my 2005 Kia Rio. I still can't get the housing unit removed in order to change a burned out bulb.

to remove the tail light asm from2003-2004 rio you will need to remove the three nuts inside and also pull carpet back to take a good look at the rear of the lamp, you will then need a plastic wedge to go behind the light and body on the outter edge this will release the pinch stud on the end of the lamp and out comes the lens asm, hope this helps, good day.

Stop light

Rear combination light assembly contains three bulbs. Two bulbs are single-filament and are used in hazard/turn signal and backup light circuits. Third bulb is a dual filament bulb; one filament functions as brake light and other as tail light. A plastic bulb holder mounts three lamps and associated wiring. Bulb holder can be removed from inside vehicle for bulb replacement
