No, you need to pull back the Cardboard trunk liner from behind the light assembly and remove the bulb from the socket. You should have to give it a turn counter clockwise to get the holder to release. If the light cover were removeable you would be able to see the screws from the outside or the release points along the edges.

Tip

One Brake Light Not Working


Inspect Brake Light Bulb: The number one reason for a brake light operation failure is a failed brake light bulb. To check this condition access the bulb by removing the rear cover located in the trunk or rear compartment. Some cars allow you to remove the entire brake light lens to retrieve the brake light bulb. Once the bulb has been removed inspect the bulb filament. If it looks broken or if the bulb is smoked the bulb needs to be replaced. If you have replaced the bulb but it still doesn't work remove the bulb. With the key in the "on" position have someone hold their foot on the brake pedal and use a grounded test light to carful test the terminals inside the light socket. One of the terminals should illuminate the test light. (Note: Do not touch the outer metal ring that holds the bulb in place for it is grounded and can blow the system fuse if connected to the inner terminals.) If the test light illuminates reinstall the brake light bulb. While the brake pedal is depressed test the outer metal ring that holds the bulb, if power is present the ground lead from the light socket is bad. If the outer ring does not illuminate the bulb has failed and replacement is required.

Scan BCM for Trouble Codes: Some cars are equipped with a body control module or BCM this onboard computer controls and lighting signals and can malfunction not allowing the electrical current to continue to the brake light circuits. This condition is rare but it can happen. If you have performed all of the tests above and all results are positive scan the BCM for trouble codes if no codes are present try replacing the BCM.

Brake lights not working and trun lights


You have 3 things to check. First the bulbs and that is easy. You will either unscrew the
lens cover and get access to the bulb. The other access is in the trunk. You may need to move
the liner to get to a twist-loose type bulb holder. Replace one bulb and hit the brakes. Does it light up?
If so, replace others not working. If the bulb doesnt light then check your fuses. Your fusebox cover
should have a list of what the fuses protect. Look for taillights or brake lights. If those dont get it fixed
you may have a bad brake light switch that is on the brake pedal. Get upside down under the dash and locate the switch mounted above the pedal. These are farely easy to remove and should have a connector
that you pinch to release the switch from the wiring harness. Call around for the best price/availablity and swap a new one in.

How do you change the brake light on chevrolet caprice 1992


Hello Friend:

To change your brake light on your Car is Done from inside your Trunk, You'll need to open trunk, and on either side there is a cover on the left and right side,That will be removeable.

Just remove the cover with your Hands and it will expose your Wiring to your bulbs and you'll see a metel socket that holds your Light Bulbs, Just turn or Pull that socket out that the Wiring goes to.

Now you can remove your bad bulb and replace it with a new one.

on a Caprice you'll have 2-3 Bulbs in the Lighting assembly just have someone Push down the Brake Pedal. So you can see the Light thats not Working.

This will get your Brake Light Working. Since its only 1- Bulb thats out Eliminates that you have a Bad Brake Light Switch. If both sides are out it could be your brake light swith.

Removing rear light assembly on honda odyssey 2006


Yes, there is a "spear point" plastic clip that is still engaged into a socket type holder in the front outboard portion of the tail lamp assembly. Pry gently with a tape wrapped screwdriver at the front outboard corner of the assembly and the clip will release. You will then be able to see how the clip works and will be able to align and engage it first when replacing the tail lamp assembly.
