I just did this,
You will find one phillips screw on the inside of the door frame, holding a small panel (under the tail light) emove this screw and panel, thjis will expose two screws holding the tail light assembly, remove these screws and the taillight assy will come loose , now you can remove the lamp.

Well, this is rather embarassing but I simple decided to look through the owners manual thinking that they usually don't contain that sort of thing and there I found. Pictures and a description of the process. Very simple...remove a phillips screw to remove a small plate covering the 2 screws that hold the tail light assembly in place. Remove the 2 screws and pull our the assembly and replace the bulb. Duh....I thought with Toyota engineering, they wouldn't make replacing a bulb a major project. Thanks for checking back....Allen

Can not get the broken tail light out of my rav4 2002


Tail light assembly or just the light bulb?
There may be 10 mm nuts holding the light assembly to the car.
Usually 2 or 3 nuts hold in the assembly.
Small panel out should gain you access to the bulbs.

How do I replace a tail light


Not sure if you mean the whole tail light assembly or only the bulb. For either one on that vehicle it should be the same process, more than likely you will have to remove a few screws inside the rear hatch which should allow the tail light assembly to be pulled out. The bulb connector will have a clip or will need turned a certain way to pull the bulb/connecter out of the assembly. Replace the burnt bulb and reassemble. Since I haven't seen the vehicle, there is a chance that is like some cars and the access to change a bulb is accessed from inside the vehicle inside the rear compartments.

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
