    I have the same problem. There are only two screws. Once you take out the screws the light assembly will not pop out in order to access the bulbs.

Two screws and two pins that you need to force out in the right direction. i have had that van for 3 months replaced the brake lamp the first week. not difficult to get to.

The bulb comes off from the back. You have to take some of that trunk carpet off to access the bulb from the back. Follow the wires to the bulb. Once you get to the bulb, twist, i think counterclockwise. The bulb should come out, replace the bulb, BE SURE NOT TO TOUCH THE ACTUAL GLASS ON THE NEW BULB. The oils from your hands will cause a weak spot on the bulb, and it will burn out quicker. Replace in kind.

which brake light? if it is in the sides, drop the tailgate/back door and remove the screws holding the tail light assembly in and then it should just pop out.

You want to change the tail light bulb?

The process for replacing tail light bulbs is the same in all models. If you have a burnt-out tail light bulb, you may need to replace the brake light, the reverse light or the turn signal. The procedure to replace each of the bulbs is the same.



    Instructions

    1. Open the Hummer's rear swing gate. This will expose the edge of the vehicle's tail light assembly. You'll see two small Phillips head screws that hold the tail light assembly in place. Put on your gloves.

    2. Remove the two screws from the tail light assembly. Pull the tail light out and inspect the back for two bulbs. The top bulb is the brake light and turn signal. The bottom bulb is the reverse bulb. Determine which bulb you need to replace.

    3Rotate the bulb's socket counterclockwise to disconnect it. Unplug the bulb from its socket.

    4Push the replacement bulb into its socket firmly. Insert the socket back into the tail light. Turn it clockwise to secure it in place.

    5Place the tail light into its cradle. Hold it with one hand and replace the Phillips head screws with the other.

How to access brake tail light to change


Tail light replacement is not as hard as it seems.
Tools needed:flat head screwdriver and a deep 5/32 socket(a pair of pliers will work).
Step 1: open trunk and pull back truck liner at tail light.There is a small button clip on liner.Use screwdriver to pop up the center of button clip,pull clip out of hole.
Step 2:You will see a black wire attached to the body of car with 2 white clips.Use screwdriver to pop clips off of studs.
Step 3:Remove the nuts from the studs and pull tail light assembly straight back away from car.The outer side of the light just snaps in and out of place.
Step 4:Turn light socket counter clockwise 1/3 turn and pull out.
Step 5:Pull bad bulb straight out and replace.Reverse steps to reassemble.
