On some lights there is a push pin that is very tight. Try to be careful when pulling on the light.

I need to change the brake and tail light on my 1996 toyota corolla . I would need a manuel on that please.


The steps to replace the brake light bulb on a 1996 Toyota Corolla:

The bulb needed is type 1157. After opening the trunk you need to remove the trunk liner on the side (right side for this example)where the brake light bulb is out. The plastic capture grommets hold the liner in place. Once the grommets are removed there is a nut (10mm) that is a bright brass-like color. This needs to be removed. Then on the outside of the trunk on the tail-light lens left side there are two nuts black in color (10mm) they need to be removed. Now the fun starts .... you needto slide the whole assembly back. You will note two black plastic posts on the rear quarter-panel, do not remove these ... these are used to hold the tail-light assembly in place since on the inside of the tail light assembly there are two rod-like protrusions that slide into these brackets. So.... remove the screws and wiggle the assembly back and it "should" slide back so that you can get at the bulb socket hat you twist to remove from the assembly. Now the bulb is visible and you reverse the order of steps to get it all back together .... a miserable design!

How do i replace the tail light bulb?


to replace the GM tail light bulb, you will drop down the tail gate and you will notice 2 screws on the tail light assembly, you will remove those 2 screws with the proper screw driver, once you do that the whole tail light assembly will come off, then you will see onother 2 screws holding the light panel to the tail light assembly, or brackets holding the light panel to the tail light assembly remove either or and you will have access to the three bulbs on that light panel, replace the burnt one and follow the same intrunctions to put back.

How do you replace rear tail light assembly?


Open the trunk and along the bottom of the tail light, there should be a Philips screw securing a cover piece. (your car may or may not have this piece)
With the cover off, there will be another 2 screws securing the bottom of the tail light assembly. Remove the screws and pull the bottom out and the top is held in by two retainers that should just slide right out

How do I replace the bulb in the high mount stop light?


Please look at the bottom of your tail lights there is 1 flat head screw there. Take it out and you can slide tail light out. You will find the back of the bulb there. Be care when returning the assembly back in place as it slide up and then you just replace the screw.

How to replace tail light cover


The brake light on my 2005 SC430 just went out. To replace the bulb, open the trunk and locate a nickel sized removable plastic plug on the black moulding surrounding the light. Pop out the plug with a regular screwdriver. Unscrew the single screw under the plug. This is the only thing holding the light covering to the vehicle. Now, standing in directly behind the light molding, pull toward you and down and the entire light moulding will slide out of the frame. It may take a little presure but it will slide out. If you have a rubber mallet you might use this to tap on the top part of the light moulding to assit you in sliding it out of the frame. When removed, the light is easily accessable for replacement. When light is replaced simply slide the light moulding back into the vehicle frame. Replace the screw and plug and your set. It took about 10 minutes for me. Happy Braking!

Head and Tail Light Replacement


Hello,

I have a 1999 GMC Sonoma and have had to replace the lights a few times.

- For the front lights, pop the hood and look to the front.
- Behind each light there are 2 black tabs.
- Pull these up to release the head lights. Be careful. they may fall right off!
- Pull the headlamp assembly out and take note of how the two tabs at the bottom fit into the frame.
- Undo all the bulbs (Some twist while others require you to hold a piece down while you twist to release the bulb) Keep track of which bulbs came out from where
- Once all bulbs are free, replace as needed.
- To reinstall, put the bulbs in the same holes they came out of
- Remember those black tabs you took note of earlier when the assembly came off? It's time to put those tabs back in the slots they came out of.
- Align the black rubber bumpers on the back with their sqaure holes
- Push the Assembly into the frame and have those black tabs ready.
- Once you see the square bumpers on the other side of the frame, slide the black bumpers back on
- Repeat for the other side

- For the tailights, Open your tailgate
- Locate the screws on the sides holding your tail light on (usually one or two screws)
- Undo the screws and take the taillight out
- Undo the bulbs like you did with the headlamps
- replace bulbs as nessecary
- Put bulbs back in
- Reattach tail light (With screws)

A Hayes Service manual also covers these pocedures.

Good Luck!
