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.

2011 Ford Escape driver side tail light not working correctly - lights are on but turn signal flash not working and neither is the brighter brake light


I would guess that you need a new bulb. Many of these tail lights actually have two filaments inside them, one that is used for a dimmer light (running light) and one that is used for a brighter light like (brake light, turn signal). The easiest thing to try (and probably the cheapest) would be to buy a replacement bulb and change it. Most places that sell automotive light bulbs will have a large catalog where you look up the make model and year of the car you need a light for and it will tell you which replacement bulb you will need. Then look in your cars manual to see how you access and replace the bulb.

How to replace brake light bulb


  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. Then replace each break light bulb by screwing them clockwise into the sockets. Then, reassemble the tail light box in reverse order.
Hope this is a help PLEASE RATE MY HELP

How do you replace rear tail light assembly?


Open the trunk and along the bottom of the tail light, there should be a Philips screw securing a cover piece. (your car may or may not have this piece)
With the cover off, there will be another 2 screws securing the bottom of the tail light assembly. Remove the screws and pull the bottom out and the top is held in by two retainers that should just slide right out
