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

Remove the lower trim piece by pulling, CAREFULLY toward teh rear of the car. Then you can get a beter grip with your hands and remove the light assembly. You have already removed the two phillips screws on the outside and the nut inside the trunk. The plastic posts on the side panel are holding the clips the light assy slides into rather that the light itself. Pul the entire assembly CAREFULLY to the rear.

Yes by pulling the lower panel in 1996 corolla I got a good grip on pulling the tail light panel. If your black screws and nut from inside is open than give it good pull towards rear side and it comes out and nothing breaks as someone would worry. Thanks

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.

How to replace the bkake light switch on a 2004 avanche?


Open the tailgate and remove the two screws on the inside of the tailgate wall which hold the tail light assembly. Then pull the whole tail light away from the truck. There will be a couple of plastic pins holding it on. Gently pry those out with a screw driver if they don't come by themselves. When the light mechanism is free, push in and twist the bulb socket release tab and it should release the bulb from the assembly. Take the bulb out of the socket and replace. Twist and push the socket back into the tail light mechanism. Push plastic pins back in and reinstall the two screws. Test signal and brakes.

How do I replace the tail light bulb on my cadillac cts 2005.


ok cadillac for some reason has to be difficult about these things you actually have to take the whole tail light assembly out. . .here is what youre going to need:

1. socket wrench
2. number 10 socket (gm's nut of choice)
3. patience because it is easy to drop the nut be careful

ok so you have to open the trunk then take the plastic that holds the carpet down off. you do this by unscrewing the black screw on pegs (not sure what to call these things). after you do this pull the plastic thing hard because it is being held in place by some pegs other than the ones you have already removed. then remove all the side carpeting depending on which side youre changing. ok after this look directly behind the tail light assembly for 2-3 (i forget how many) bolt like pegs (my new favorite word) these are attached to the plastic tail light assembly. then take the nuts off of these pegs and then you should be able to tug the assembly off. then you do what the others say take out the socket and replace the bulb.

like i said cadillac makes **** hard to do. if you hate this wait til you have to take the whole bumper off to replace the headlight bulbs (might want to invest in some hid lights so you wont ever have to replace them)

good luck
