The tail light consists of the brake lights, reverse lights, parking lights and turn indicator lights. 1)Tail lights at the back of your car. 2)Tail lights are on each back corner of the car.3)There is plastic lens on above the tail lights in car.4) Remove the screws on lens cover.5) Remove the bulb after lens is removed.6)The access panel will be on the inside of the trunk in the same position as the tail lights.7)Open the trunk to access panel for the tail lights.8) The bulb is screwed.9) turn it counter clockwise to loosen and remove the bulb.10) Reinsert the new bulb in the same procedure of how to removed.This will help.thanks.
I just did a 97 Regal yesterday and yes you are correct...the strip must be removed to gain access...depending on model you may have to remove the cushioning panel (piece of upholstery panel) on the inside of trunk lid...follow this video URL as it explains the removal better in video form than written..basically remove the 7 10mm nuts holding panel on, lower trunk lid a little and wiggle panel off, twist socket and remove to gain bulb access..install is reverse procedure ...Regal, Century and LeSabre are all same idea/setup Tail Light Change 1997 2005 Buick Century 2004 Buick Century Custom 3 1L V6
1) Open trunk
2) Remove small round plastic access panel with a flat tip screw driver by prying open
3) Remove flat tip screw holding tail light assembly
4) Remove tail light assembly by pulling outward, careful not to break plastic guide/nub
5) Disconnect wiring connectors
6) Remove plastic housing access plate on back of tail light assembly by twisting/turning tabs until they click and then lift access plate from tail light assembly
7) When viewing the the bulbs, the turn signal bulb is the bottom left bulb
8) Install in reverse order, ensuring tail light seal seats properly during installation
Start by opening the trunk lid. On the sides of the trunk, just beside where the trunk lid sits when closed there is a circle cap on either side. Remove the cap it is the same material as the trunk side trim (fuzzy carpet) then there will be a screw set into the hole that you just uncovered. You can use either a philips screw driver or an 8mm socket and remove the screw/bolt. you may need to reach in with a set of needle nose pliers to remove the screw after it is loosened all the way. Once the screw is removed grab the tail lamp assembly from the inside and twist the tail lamp out of the holding pins located on the side edge of the tail lamp. The whole light will come off of the body in your hands. Once the tail lamp assembly is out there is an access panel on the back side where all the bulbs are installed. Depress the two holding tabs on the sides and carefully remove the bulb holder. Then replace any blown bulbs and reinstall.
There will be 6-10 retainers (sometimes they are 10mm nuts and sometimes they are plastic speed nuts) holding the whole lens assembly to the trunk lid. Once those are removed you will be able to remove the lens assembly and access the bulb. There are six bulbs all together, two for the license place and four tail lights (not including the reverse lights) and they are part number 194. I usually recommend replacing all six while you have the lens removed from the trunk.
There is a short in the tail light wires. Have someone hold the brake pedal down, and get the trunk open and access to the wires, now go along the harness and gently wiggle the wires and see if you can get the trunk latch to release.
