There is also a screw on the bottom of the light housing. You access this screw by laying on your back and reaching up behind the bumper assembly. You may also need to take one screw off the bumper mount near the tail light. This makes it easier to remove the old light housing.

You remove the tail light by removing the nuts or bolts from inside the trunk area. This is what holds the tail light in place.

How do you remove the tail light lens cover for a 1987 Nissan Pickup truck


You can't remove the lens cover. The tail lights are molded as one piece. If you want to change the bulbs, there should be an access panel inside the truck box right behind the tail lights that gives you access to the bulbs. There are also screws to remove the entire tail light assembly if it needs replacing.

I cant seem to find out how to remove the tail light to replace the bulb. what am i missing?


Typically, the entire tail light assembly has to be released from the inside. So you have to remove trim, inside, for access, usually 3 or 4 thumbscrews get released and the whole thing comes out. This set up is much more watertight than the older method of lense removal.

How do i replace the tail light bulb


Open the trunk, and pull back the carpet behind the tail light assembly-- you should see 3 different sets of wires going into the back of the tail light assembly. Pick the one you need to replace, and give it about a quarter turn counter-clockwise, and the bulb, harness, and wire can be pulled out of the tail light. Replace the burned out bulb in the socket, and reinstall the bulb just as you removed it.
If you have difficulty getting to the wiring harnesses to dislodge them from the tail light assembly, you can remove the tail light entirely by unscrewing the black plastic wingnuts that hold the tail light assembly in place. It may take a little bit of effort to get them started, but will allow you to see what you are doing a bit better.

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

When I press the break only my passanger side tail light works. Is this a fuse problem?


Try replacing the passenger side tail light bulb.
Inside trunk, remove two black plastic nuts holding carpet liner in place on side where bulb is burnt out.
Pull back carpet, use a flat screwdriver to pop out the wiring. Remove three nuts using a small open-ended socket or pliers.
Pop out entire tail light assembly. Locate bulb to be replaced. Rotate 1/4 turn to remove from socket. Replace bulb and repeat in reverse order to reinstall.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck
