On that year I believe you open the hatch remove the trim piece then pull back the carpet. You remove the assembly as a whole. There should be some thumb nuts. Once you get the assembly out just replace whatever bulb you need to replace.
Thank you and enjoy,

How do you change tail light bulb on 1997 Dodge Intrepid?


In the trunk. You will find black plastic wing nuts that hold the felt panels in place, remove and pull back the panel pieces and you can now access the taillight assembly, if you can't access the bulbs from that point you need to remove the tail lights by un bolting the 10mm nuts holding the taillight assembly then remove the taillight from the car now on the outside you should be able to access the bulbs from there by turning the bulb plugs about a 1/4 to a 1/2 turn, reassemble the taillight and interior panels.

1997 saturn tail lights not working checked fuses and changed bulbs still not working


saturs have always had problems with the taillights not working or signals not working also, the way i was told to fix the problem is to change the plugs where the bulbs go, the plugs get burn spots and wont let the bulbs make contact. hope this helps.

Need to know how to replace rear taillight bulb.


You'll need a phillips head screwdriver and possibly a needle-nose pliers.

Open your tailgate and look near the taillight assembly. With the tailgate open, you'll see 2 phillips head screws holding the taillight assembly in place. Remove the screws and pull out and toward the side of the car. You'll see the wiring harness that plugs into the taillight body and three plastic disks that have a raised plastic tab. Twist the tab counter-clockwise for about 1/4 turn and the disk/socket will come out with the bulb attached. The socket may be difficult to twist by hand, so you may need a needle-nose pliers to grip the tab lengthwise. I suggest replacing all of the bulbs in the assembly at once, even if they're not all bad so that you won't have to do it again when another bulb inevitably burns out.

After you have the bulb(s) replaced, reassemble the taillight and reattach in the reverse order of disassembly.

How do you change a brake light in a 97 accprd?


1. Open the trunk and remove the taillight cover by turning the knob.
2. Determine which of the two bulbs is burned out: tail/stoplight or turn
signal.
3. Remove the socket by turning it one-quarter turn counterclockwise.
4. Remove the burned out bulb from the socket by pulling it straight out of its socket.
5. Install the new bulb in the socket.
6. Reinstall the socket into the light assembly.
7. Test the lights to make sure the new bulb is working.
8. Reinstall the taillight assembly cover.

Passenger Taillight always burning out


I own a 97 LS as well and I was going through passenger taillight bulbs too. I found that the water that drained in the channel around the trunk was deteriorating the connectors on the taillight. I replaced the circuit board (black plastic piece you plug the lights into) and also used a can of Electical Connector Cleaner on both the plug to the circuit board and the socket the lights plug into. Lights have lasted now 5 months without burning out.
