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

How do I get to the backup lights to replace them? Does the clear cover next to my license plate just pop off? I have a 1988 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz, 2 door. Thanks for any help.


No u have to open your trunk,when u open it look down just behind the light u should see what looks like three or four big plastic wing nuts unscrew these and the whole light assembly will pull out so be careful not to drop it once u get this off the light to be changed should be on the back of the light assembly gently twist the bulb holder piece Counter Clock wise it should come out easy,pull old bulb out replace with new one ,turn the bulb holder clock wise to put back in,and reverse the steps putting the light assembly back just remember not to tighten the black wing nuts in the trunk to tight

How to change the brake lights on the mercury sable


Hello,
In order to replace the light bulbs you will have to remove the entire rear light housing unit. In order to do this you must do the following:

1.Open the trunk.

2.Loosen the trunk lining in order to reach the 4 nuts that are located on the right or left side and hold the light housing in place.


3.You loosen the trunk lining fabric by removing two small, black plastic fasteners that anchor the trunk lining fabric. These either screw loose or you will need to pop off using a blunt- nosed pliers ( a flat head screwdriver works in a pinch) by first pulling the square bit out (towards the direction of the back seat,) followed by the circular components.


4.Pull the fabric loose on either the left or right side to expose the 4 nuts holding the light assembly in place.


5.Now, look for the four gold colored washer and nut assemblies surrounding the tail-light assembly. Find yourself a 7/16 socket and remove those washers and nuts. The tail-light itself should be able to pop- out, otherwise you've missed a washer- nut.


6.Ease the tail- light assembly off of it's perch on the car and hold it red- side down. This will expose the wiring and "turn- locks" for the blinker and tail- light.


7.Remove the bulbs from the assembly by turning the turn- locks in the direction (counter- clockwise) indicated by the plastic molding, and pulling upwards, off of the tail- light assembly.


8.Pull the bulb from the turn- lock with a moderate tug of the hand.


Problem solved.

Thank you for using fixya..

How do i changs rear turn signal bulb. it looks difficult.


not too difficult. you have to go thru your trunk. Carefully peel away the trunk liner where your rear lenses are. There are three nuts you have to unscrew to pull out the entire lens. carefully unscrew and push out the lens into your free hand. locate & replace the faulty bulb, and re-attach the lens and put back the trunk liner.

Need to replace rear brake light.


Open up the trunk, remove the liner in the back, there should be little wing nuts to unscrew. Then the light lens should come off. If you want to replace just the bulb itself, just turn the bulb socket counter-clockwise a bit and pull the bulb and socket out. Then push in and turn the bulb itself counter-clockwise and it will pop out..

Remove & replace right turn signal bulb


The procedure is as follows:-- Working from the trunk:
1. locate the 2 retaining knobs (doohickeys that you fasten the trunk cargo net to) for the Hard plastic trunk liner near to and inside of the rear light assembly. Unscrew the knobs.
2. Pulling back the plastic liner, locate the 4 studs (threaded posts). 3 will be located vertically in a line, the fourth, outboard and lower. Using a 10mm wrench(small), remove 3 of the 4 nuts fastening the light assembly to the body. DO NOT remove the lowest nut of the 3 in a vertical line, as this does not fasten the light assembly. DON'T LOSE THE NUTS OR WASHERS.

Working from the rear of the car:
1. Hand pull the light assembly from the car body.
2. Remove bad lamp. Twist lamp socket and pull out of assembly. Pull lamp and replace with #3057.
Reassemble:
1. Test light prior to reassembly.
2. Ensure Gasket material for assembly and studs is intact, this keeps water/dust out and dampens movement (prevents rattling and increases the life of lamp).
3. Use Reverse instruction for reassembly.
-------------- The taillight/backup light/license plate light assembly is separate from the brake light/turn signal light assembly on the Buick LeSabre. No matter what rear bulb you have to replace, you must access the trunk area to do so. Open the trunk of the Buick LeSabre.Locate 7 nuts underneath the trunk lid (3 on each end of the trunk lid and 1 in the middle). Remove each one using a nut driver.Manipulate the trunk lid at chest level and gently pull the rear taillight assembly slightly away from the trunk lid.Locate the burned out bulb sockets and then remove the bulbs. Insert the new bulbs into the socket and test by turning on the lights before reassembling.Replace the tail light assembly by aligning the studs inside the predrilled holes in the trunk lid. Refasten the 7 nuts.Remove the cargo net if applicable to replace the brake and/or turn signal light.Unscrew the plastic wingnut that the cargo net is attached to. Pull back the trunk liner.Remove the 2 plastic wingnuts under the trunk liner.Pull the brake light assembly outward from the back of the LeSabre.Locate the socket of the burned out bulb and then turn counter clockwise 1/4-inch to release it from the assembly.Remove the old bulb from the socket and replace with a new one. Test the light before reassembling. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How do I replace tail lights on a 1999 ford taurus?


You go through the trunk and on either side is the light housing unit that you remove 4 nuts from, pull out and there will be the individual bulbs to be replaced.

IN DEPTH:

In order to replace the light bulbs you will have to remove the entire rear light housing unit. In order to do this you must do the following:

1.Pop the trunk.

2.Loosen the trunk lining in order to reach the 4 nuts that are located on the right or left side and hold the light housing in place.

3.You loosen the trunk lining fabric by removing two small, black plastic fasteners that anchor the trunk lining fabric. These either screw loose or you will need to pop off using a blunt- nosed pliers ( a flat head screwdriver works in a pinch) by first pulling the square bit out (towards the direction of the back seat,) followed by the circular components.

4.Pull the fabric loose on either the left or right side to expose the 4 nuts holding the light assembly in place.

5.Now, look for the four gold colored washer and nut assemblies surrounding the tail-light assembly. Find yourself a 7/16 socket and remove those bad boys. The tail-light itself should be able to pop- out, otherwise you've missed a washer- nut.

6.Ease the tail- light assembly off of it's perch on the car and hold it red- side down. This will expose the wiring and "turn- locks" for the blinker and tail- light.

7.Remove the bulbs from the assembly by turning the turn- locks in the direction (counter- clockwise) indicated by the plastic molding, and pulling upwards, off of the tail- light assembly.

How to change break light bulb 1997 geo prizem


Step #1 Open Trunk, on inside of the light housing close to the trunk latch area are 2 bolts, Remove them, on mine they were 10mm

Step#2 Inside the trunk are 2 Black clips that hold the carpet down They have flat heads that look like screws but they are actually clips that pop out

Step#3 Peal back the carpet in the trunk and look in the corner of the rear of the light assembly by the fender You will see a nut and the end of a bolt On mine these were gold colored, Remove the nut

Step#4 On the outside of the vehicle again take a screwdriver or such and gently pry the outside edge of the assembly to dislodge the pin holding it in place You cant see it but you will feel when it gives and the whole light assembly will come out toward the rear of the car

Step#5 The brake lights are the bulbs to the inside of the assembly, gently twist the socket counter clockwise and remove it from the housing, Then push down on the bulb and twist it to remove it from the socket, Replace with the new bulb and reassemble everything and You are home free!

Hope this helps, Took me a long time to figure this one out without an owners manual!

Take Care and good luck
