Inside the trunk you will find large plastic screws to remove the complete tail light assy. Once you have the assy. out of its pocket you will find access to the bulbs, which have a base that turn 1/4 turn to pull out.

Water is getting into the trunk lid where the reverse lights are on my 2003 impala


Remove the light housing (not easy) and inspect the cushion that surrounds the lightbulb holes and replace if needed. You may have to pull off a gray trunk lining to access the nuts for the light housing.

How to replace back-up bulb on 2000 buick century (custom)


As far as i know, the reverse lights are built into the trunk lid If so, open the trunk, and unscrew all the nuts from inside the trunk lid that hold the rear light assembly in place. Once undone the light assembly should pop offf from the outside of the trunk lid, then you can access the bulbs, and get a new one at the auto oarts store

Rear deck stop light


the hyundai suggested method is by removing the back seat. the dealer will charge you around $100.
i have done it using an alternate method.
1. open the trunk
2. crawl in facing up
3. locate openings below the brake light
(the opening is offset from the bottom of the light and holder (very helpful of hyundai!!!)
4. remove the foam pieces if any.
5. remove the screws holding the cover in place. a magnetic philips screwdriver would be good.
6. unscrew the light using the tab at the bottom of the holder
7. push it up and into the passenger compartment.
8. the entire assembly should come out from inside the compartment.
9. replace the bulb.
10. saw off the extra plastic tab at the bottom of the holder ( will help in putting it back and for future installs)
11. replace everything in the reverse order: bulb , cover ( inside the passenger compartment), replace screws from inside the trunk.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE REAR BULB ON A 2006 BUICK LACROSSE


Asuming you mean taillight/turnsignal, and not highmounted brake light:
1.open the trunk
2.Remove 4 wingnuts on trunk trim (there are two on each side)
You can do it by only removing 2 on one side, but it makes a nicer job,
3.Pull back the trunk "trim" the carpeted cardboard
4.Remove 2 wingnuts which hold the taillight assembly in place
Pull out the taillight assembly; you might want to remove (i.e. unattach or unplug) the wiring harness
5.Turn the particular bulb's socket (there's 5 back there: 2 tail, 1 back up, 1 side marker, 1 brake/turn) counterclockwise, and it removes from the assembly, holding the bulb.
6. Pull out bulb and replace.
6. Reverse steps to reassemble.

This is what the tech data says:

Tail Lights
  1. Displace trunk room trim as needed.
  2. From trunk, remove nuts securing rear combination lamp assembly.
  3. Disconnect connectors and remove assembly.
  4. Installation is reverse order of removal

Need to change a tail light bulb left sideon a 2000 vw bettle


Unscrew the knob behined the light in the Boot / Trunk and the use a small screwdriver on the OUTSIDE of the light on the right handside as you look at the light in the middle on the outside. You will feel a little spring clip and as you push gently the light will pullout forward.

2006 nissan sentra trunk doorrreplacement


all you have to do is inspect the old trunk door how it is attached to the hinges.

be careful on the tension bars that are lifting the trunk. once you released them, the trunk would just fall down.

there are two of these tension bars, they are like springs to help you lift the trunk and they are very tricky to remove and install
after you have done that then it just a matter of removing 2 bolts on each side of the hinge and remove the trunk.

if you have electrical accessories attached to the trunk such as solenoids or trunk cables, remove them first.

then do the reverse on installation.

you may want somebody helping you hold to the trunk before you remove the bolts. they are heavy.

tnx 4 using fixya,

3rd brake light


This is how i did it on my 2006 Sonata

1.) unplug the connector in the trunk (its a small white plug running up to the third light, there should be a small clip you squeeze).

2.) remove the 2 gold-colored screws from inside the trunk. They can be seen from the trunk. 1 is thru the larger square opening where the wire connects to the 3rd brake light. The 2nd is on the right side thru a small (screwdriver width) hole covered by a piece of foam tape stuff I had to punch me screwdriver through the foam to get to it.

3.) after removing the 2 screws, go inside the cabin and the brake light housing pops up.

4.) disconnect the bulb from the housing while inside the cabin (I had to do this with me two forefingers since the housing only pops up and inch or two).

5.) in the trunk remove the wire and bulb. (it's about 5 inches long. the wire from the connector to the bulb socket)

6.) reverse steps to install.

It is a pain and reqiuires a bit of time only because there isn't a lot of room to move around, but it beats taking it to the dealershio!
