replace the bulb, you can access the bulb when you open the hatch. there is a cover at the back of the tail lights. or go to your local autozone or pepboys. they will replace it for you with no extra charge
Remove the two screws holding the tail light cover in place along the edge of the tail light assembly.
After you remove the two screws in the back panel, you have to pull the assembly out towards the side of the vehicle. You
cannot pull it straight back from the trunk or you will break the pins that hold the lens cover onto the side
of the SUV.
There are two pins that allow the light cover to be secured against the
back of the truck. One pin is towards the top, the other pin is towards
Twist out the bulb assembly.
Pull out the bulb
Insert the new bulb
Twist back in the bulb assembly
Place the pins over the pin holes in the light cover mold on the side of the truck
Push in gently Replace screws and you are done.
tail light bulb broken/out remove backside nuts and remove lens and replace as needed taillight lens broken same thing remove backside nuts and replace ..for affordability try a salvage yard as a temporary fix red or yellow electrical tape ...i hope one of them was an answer to this question as i dont have much to go on ...
To change the taillight assembly open the trunk and pull the cover back on what ever side you need to change. You will see either wing nuts holding the taillight in or 10mm nuts holding the light in. Remove the bulbs and unbolt the taillight assembly and remove replace in reverse.
open the trunk.
pull back the cover on the side you need to change, there are usually 3 black plastic nut you have to remove before doing this.
after the trunk interior cover is pulled off there are 3 nuts, 11mm wrench or socket will take them off. pull the taillight assembly out and twist the socket out containing the bulb that is blown. the bulb just pulls out of the socket. while the bulb is out you should inspect the socket for corrosion, it wont hurt to clean it up and put some die electric grease in there
there is a plastic circle inside the car....pop out the side you need to replace...unscrew the bolt and the whole taillight will pop out of the body, replace the bulb then do the same to put it back together
