There should be 4 screws that fasten the tailight to the body.2 from the outside edge and 2 on the inside edge of the lense assembly,the 2 on the inside edge you have to open the tailgate to see the inner screws.remove the assembly then you can get to the bulb sockets to change the bulbs.

SOURCE: Need to replace tail light bulb on 1996 Buick Century

Inside the trunk, under the carpet behind the tail lights will be a whole bunch of small plastic nuts, running from one side of the car to the other. Take all of these plastic nuts off, and the whole tail light assembly will come off in one large piece. Find the bulb you need to replace, and reassemble

SOURCE: i cant get the tail light out to change the bulb

No tools needed.

Beetles: Round plug inside trunk pops out.
Beetle Convts: Grille-looking rectangular panel pops out.

Reach in and you'll feel a large finger-grip able nut, back it off (DON'T DROP
IT) and place it somewhere retrievable. Take a small-flat-bladed screwdriver and wrap it in cloth so you don't scratch the paint. Poke said protected blade between the inside body joint and the tail light, gently pry tail light out. Remove offending bulb, replace with new. Installation is, as they say, the reverse of removal.

SOURCE: how to access brake tail light to change

This is for Nissan Sentra Models 2007-2010.

1. Open the trunk and remove trunk liner by first removing popcap black button which fastens the liner. Then pull away liner from metal.
2. Notice two white protective plastic spikes covering 2 screw threads with 2 small bolts. Remove white protective spikes manually or by prying them off of their screws and proceed to remove bolts.
4. Pry away entire brake lamp housing from the exterior of the car in swinging door motion towards the sidepanels of the car. Dont pull too hard or let it hang as this may damage wiring - support lamp housing in place.
5. Replace lamp by manually pulling it's housing out of the lamp and then pulling the bulb itself out of socket and inserting new one.

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.

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE REAR TAIL LIGHTS ON A 1998 CROWN VIC?


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.

How do you access the outside tail light to change the bulb on a 2008 Hyundai Sante Fe?


You can access the bulb by going to the rear of the car and removing the internal side panels at the opposite side of each tail light. You should see the covering and the socket for the light which you need to remove to gain access to the bulb.

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 a rear turn signal bulb?


Some bulbs can be changed without removing the tail light. First check to see if there is an access panel in the trunk trim near the tail light. If there is, you can twist the turn signal socket counter-clockwise to remove it from the unit. If there is no access panel you will have to remove the portion of trim blocking the tail light. This is usually held in by a few small clips. After it is removed you can follow the directions above.
Lastly, some models have to have the tail light removed to change a bulb. The bolts will either be behind the trunk trim or on the inside edge of the tail light.
Once the bulb is changed just reverse the steps to put it back together.
Good Luck!!

How do I replace right tail light bulb on VW Beetle?


The entire tail light assembly pulls out from the fender well. You can access the socket for the tail light on the inside of the trunk, but in order to change the bulbs you will need to pull the tail light assembly out from the socket. Check inside to see if there are any retaining straps, otherwise use your fingers to get under the outer edge of the tail light assembly and gentlu pull it out. Don't pull too far because the wires will still be connected between the tail light assembly and the socket. The bulbs are then easily accessible and can be changed. Reverse the procedure to re-install.
