Question about 2008 Pontiac G6 Sedan

1 Answer

How do I change the brake light/taillight assembly on a Pontiac G6 sedan? The owners manual says to remove the two nuts (as illustrated), then to pull out the taillight assembly. However, I can't figure out where that is. I found the fuse box and something that I thought was the taillight assembly, but it was cords/cables.

If it is the lens assembly in the rear of the car the nuts you are looking for are located under a cover inside the trunk.This carpet or covers is removable and allows you access to the bulbs and the nuts to remove it.If its the fuse then it would be under the dash on the driver side or at the end of the dash on the driver side.The location of the fuse should be printed on the inside of the cover.

05 towncar--how do i get to the taillight assemby to change bulbs?


It you go inside the trunk and pull the liner back at the rear you will see plastic nuts that hold the tail light studs, remove the "finger nuts" and remove the tail light assembly to replace the bulbs. This is outlined in the owners manual in most Ford products.

How do i change out my rear brake light bulb


Instructions on how to change the bulbs should be inside your owners manual.But here you go;

Lift the tailgate and ensure that it is properly supported.
  • 3 Remove the two screws at the top of the taillight assembly with a Phillips screwdriver. Set both screws together, to the side of your work area.
  • 4 Grasp the taillight assembly horizontally on the left and right. Slowly pull the assembly toward you and away from the truck's frame. Use care while you're pulling the taillight assembly as there will still be wiring connected to it. Once the assembly is away from the frame lay it down on the bumper.
  • 5 Remove the brake light socket from the taillight assembly. Rotate the socket a quarter-turn counter-clockwise to unlock it from the assembly. Withdraw the socket slowly from the hole on the taillight assembly to avoid breaking the brake light bulb.
  • 6 Remove the brake light bulb from its socket by grasping it between three fingers and pulling it straight out of the socket. Put on some latex gloves before you touch the new brake light bulb.
  • 7 Place a small hairline bead of dielectric grease on the metal contacts at the base, on both sides of the brake light bulb. If the grease gets anywhere on the glass portion of the bulb, discard it and start with a fresh bulb. This grease is not absolutely necessary.
  • 8 Insert the brake light bulb back into its socket. Push down on the bulb gently until it seats itself.
  • 9 Now that it's connected carefully insert the bulb into the socket back through the hole on the taillight assembly. Lock the socket back in place by rotating it a quarter-turn clockwise. Do not over rotate the socket. When it locks in place, you stop rotating.
  • 10 Lift the taillight assembly up off the bumper. Position it so that it's ready for re-installation. Push the assembly back into place on the frame. Make sure that all of its wires are tucked back behind it and that no wires get pinched.
  • 11 Reinstall the two mounting screws and tighten them a quarterturn past hand tight. Shut the lift gate door.

    How do I change the rear turn signal bulb on my 2007 pontiac g6 convertible


    Probably too late for you, but others may benefit as I just did this.
    In your trunk on each rear side panel, you will find several rubber stoppers approximately 1" wide. take a flat head screwdriver and pry underneath to loosen then pull the stopper out.
    Take a socket set you and find the right size socket for your nut and take out the 2 nuts on top and the bolt at the bottom (my bottom bolt didn't have a stopper on it).
    Pull out the tail light assembly. Remove the bad bulb from the back of the assembly and replace with a new bulb (look up type of bulb to buy in your owners manual). Replace hardware and test lights.

    How do you replace brake light bulbs


    1. Slide your fingers beneath the carpeted trunk trim and peel it away from the trunk's interior.
    2. Remove the four wing nuts that fasten the taillight assembly to the car. Place the nuts in your pocket or a small bag for safekeeping.
    3. Lift the taillight assembly away from your Grand Am's body. Press the five restraining tabs to release the assembly plate from the lens cover.
    4. Pull the defective bulb directly out of its socket and replace it with the new bulb. Once it's secure, press the assembly plate back into place.
    5. Test the new light to make sure it's working. If the bulb lights up, attach the lens cover, fasten the wing nuts and replace the trunk trim.

    Replacement of rear outside tail light assembly


    If you're asking how do you change a taillight bulb, then follow this procedure:

    Open the trunk lid.

    Disconnect the connectors from the taillights (taillight bulb connectors are visible by looking inside the trunk at the back of the tail lamps.) There may be an interior trunk trim panel that you have to take off but in most cases its just a series of thumb screws that hold them in.


    Brake Lights/Taillights: 21/5 W

    Rear Turn Signal Light: 21 W

    Back-up Light: 21 W

    Rear Side Marker Light: 5 W


    Turn the bulb sockets 45 º counterclockwise to remove the bulbs.


    If you're removing the taillamps with the bumper off there are 3 nuts and screws that hold the taillight to the rear panel of the car that have to come off from the inside of the trunk.
    Remove the nuts and screws, then remove the taillight.

    hope that answers your question
