Tail light Center Section Installation- 1996

Rather an uninstallation problem, I've removed all of the nuts that appear to be holding this piece in place but it's still connected pretty solidly, I'm wondering if I have to remove the two nuts that seem to be holding the locking mechanism in place or if this baby is glued on.

Help!

I have a 1996 Volkswagon Cabrio. I was notified that the back right tail light is burnt out. Can you assist? I would like to try to fix it myself.

I need to change the brake and tail light on my 1996 toyota corolla . I would need a manuel on that please.


The steps to replace the brake light bulb on a 1996 Toyota Corolla:

The bulb needed is type 1157. After opening the trunk you need to remove the trunk liner on the side (right side for this example)where the brake light bulb is out. The plastic capture grommets hold the liner in place. Once the grommets are removed there is a nut (10mm) that is a bright brass-like color. This needs to be removed. Then on the outside of the trunk on the tail-light lens left side there are two nuts black in color (10mm) they need to be removed. Now the fun starts .... you needto slide the whole assembly back. You will note two black plastic posts on the rear quarter-panel, do not remove these ... these are used to hold the tail-light assembly in place since on the inside of the tail light assembly there are two rod-like protrusions that slide into these brackets. So.... remove the screws and wiggle the assembly back and it "should" slide back so that you can get at the bulb socket hat you twist to remove from the assembly. Now the bulb is visible and you reverse the order of steps to get it all back together .... a miserable design!

Replace rear window brake light bulb


I just had to do this, and it isn't all that easy or quick. First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits. (The screws are permanently attached to the lens housing so will not drop into obscurity when the nuts are removed). After removing the nuts, GENTLY work the lens housing away from the car. You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.

You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.

Just reverse these directions to reassemble the housing.

Need to replace tail light bulb on 1996 Buick Century


Inside the trunk, under the carpet behind the tail lights will be a whole bunch of small plastic nuts, running from one side of the car to the other. Take all of these plastic nuts off, and the whole tail light assembly will come off in one large piece. Find the bulb you need to replace, and reassemble

Brake Light Control Module


91 Honda Accord has 2 separate tail lights on each side(total of 4 pieces). My problem stemmed from a faulty control module on the right hand side(passenger side). The module in question is located inside the smaller of the 2 tail light sections. In order to change the module you have to remove the tail light. There are 4 nuts holding in the taillight section and 2 phillips head screws holding the module in. The module on this side is 6 pin plug in. The one on the drivers side is a 5 pin plug in. Whole effort takes about 45 minutes. It is strictly plug and play.

Tail light removal


You remove the tail light by removing the nuts or bolts from inside the trunk area. This is what holds the tail light in place.

Tail light installation


1. Use a "star" screwdriver to unscrew the two black screws on the outside.
On the inside if there is a canvas remove this by gently unscrewing the two black plastic screws

2. Use a No. 8 spanner to remove the nut on the inside.

3. Pull gently the whole casing containing all the rear lights(brake/turn
signal/reverse/blinkers)

4. Since you already oend the casing, you might as well make sure the rest ofthe bulbs are good.

5. Determine which bulb needs replacement by switching your lights on and have someone step on the brakes for you.( with the ignition turned on)

6. Remember not to lose the screws Replace everything as it was
