Question about 2001 Dodge Caravan
I need to replace the drivers side tail light. how do i access the old one and replace it?
Hi Guys and Gals,
I figured out that there are two rubber grommets that hold the light assembly in place. Access to the grommets is easy as you just open up the taligate and you can see them located on the inside of the rear area of the van. All you do is take a pair of vise grips or a flat head screw drive and pull or pry the gromments our of their holes. ( I prefer using the grips, no slippage while prying) the old light will drop out of the slot. Remove the wiring harness from the old light as well as the light sockets, incert the sockets into the new light, replace the bulbs into the sockets, then re-connect the wiring harness. Place the new light into it's place on the outside of the vehicle and replace the rubber grommets. Close the tail gate and Voila, your done! Hope this helps some else.

Open the back hatch of your Honda Pilot and look for two small screws. They will be right behind the tail light. Remove the two screws, using a standard screw driver. You should now be able to pull the tail light box away from the car a few inches to allow access to the sides of the tail light box
Remove the two ball sockets found on both sides of the tail light box. At this point you should be able to move the entire assembly enough to get at the tail light. Inside the tail light you will find three bulb sockets. Remove all three bulbs by turning the sockets to the left.
