In the trunk, in the rear corners, you'll see some plastic "caps" with tabs on them, similar to wing nuts. Remove those, and the taillight comes right off the back of the car. That will allow you to replace the bulbs.

    How do I unplug the wires so I can take the tail light assembly out completely and replace it with a new one? I tried pulling on the socket but there must be some magic release trick that I am not thinking of....

2003 Olds Alero keeps blowing fuse For dash and tail lights


Likely there's a wire loose that's shorting to the chassis. The way I troubleshoot these is to put a lightbulb in the fuse socket, and then go under the dash, and move stuff around while somebody watches the light. When it goes on, you're close to the problem. Yeah, it's a royal pain, but that's the best way I know.

2002 alero tail lights will not work

Click on the link.
I tried to get whole picture, didn't make it. This is for tail lamps. Is it the tail lamps or stop lamps, I mainly looked at the tail lamps.
Do the front park lamps work? If so, but not at the rear, I think there is a wiring circuit problem? At the rear, brown wire is voltage for tail lamps. Black wire is ground. The front park lamps--rear tail lamps and tag lamp all get voltage from the same source.
I need to add, if you can't click on the link, type into your address box.

How to replace rear brake light hyundai getz 2004


Access to the tail light cluster should be through panels in the rear corners of the vehicle. Remove the panel and you can remove the tail light cluster to replace the bulbs. This is the position on most sedans, unless, like on pick-ups, the tail light lenses have screws which allow the lenses to be removed to change the bulbs.

Brake lights dont work. Center brake light does work. fuse ok. 2001 Olds alero


IT SEEMS THAT YOUR TAIL LIGHT BULBS ARE BLOWN, DO YOUR TURN SIGNALS FLASH FASTER THAN NORMAL ? IF SO IT IS FOR SURE THE REAR BULBS. TO REPLACE THE BULBS,LOOK IN THE TRUNK,& YOU WILL EITHER SEE SOME BLACK T HANDLE NUTS OR 10 OR 11 MM NUTS, THAT HOLD THE TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLY IN TAKE THE NUTS OFF,& CAREFULLY PULL THE ASSEMBLY OUT ,YOU WILL SEE THE SOCKETS, SOME HAVE A LITTLE CATCH ON THEN LIKE A GALLON ANTIFREEZE JUG HAS THAT YOU HAVE TO PUSH IN,&THEN TWIST & OTHERS JUST TWIST OUT,IT SHOULD TAKE EITHER A 3157 OR 3057,BULB, BUT CHECK TO SEE FOR SURE AT THE AUTO PARTS WHERE YOU BUY THE BULBS.

2004 brake light out (red section) how do I


Not familiar with this model, however see if there are bolts or screws on the side of the tail lamp assembly when you open the tail gate.  Once you remove screws, entire taillamp assembly will come out, and you can then get to back side of tail light to replace bulbs.  This is normal bulb replacement for other pickups like toyota, ford.  Hope this helps!!

Replace the tail light bulbs in 2004 infiniti g 35 coup


tail light bulbs are replaced by removing the tail light housings. The housings are accessed by removing the nuts, the nuts are secured behind the inner trunk liner inside the trunk. Remove fasteners holding liner in place, remove 3 nuts for each housing(i believe it's 3 nuts if my memory serves me right), remove housing and replace bulbs
