Once you have the housing off, the bulbs twist out. You should be able to the see arrows in the plastic that tells you which direction.

Tail lights dont turn on


1. Replace your car tail light. You will need working gloves to protect your hand during the process. Of course you will also need a screwdriver, cleaning cloth, wire brush, and a good set of tail light bulbs.

2.Understand that different models of car have different set of tail light covers. Naturally, these covers will require different un-installation procedures. So, determine if you can dismount the cover from the outside or you will have to dismount it from the trunk of the car.

3.Determine how to dismount the tail light cover, carefully detach it from the car. You can use different sets of screwdrivers for this. Be careful not to break the tail lights cover. The important thing is you must be able to expose the bulb in order to extract it.

4.Remove the tail lights cover, unscrew the bulb from its socket. Sometimes you will have to press a little and twist the bulb in order to extract it from the socket.

5.Extract the bulb, bring it to your favorite auto parts and accessories store and find the exact match of your tail light bulb. Be sure to get the correct match because if you use other types of bulb, your tail lights may not work properly.

6.Reinstall the tail light bulb, clean the aluminum casing of the tail light. Wipe the socket and wiring with a dry cloth. You can use wire brush if there are corrosion around the tail light casing.

7.Put the good bulb on the socket. You might still need to apply a little pressure on the socket before you can install it fully.

8.Reinstall the tail light bulb, replace the cover of the tail lights and secure it tightly.

9.Test to make sure your new tail lights are working. Start the engine and apply the brakes. You can ask someone to see if the tail lights are really working.

How do you get the tail light cover off to replace the bulb


Hello: Open the tailgate, on the inside of the tail light lens (toward the other tail light) you will find two screws, remove the screws, wiggle the tail light lens assembly and it should come off.

Tail lights do not work on a 2000 lexus rx 300 bulbs are fine, all other lights work fine


You may have a fried fuse. Look in your owners manual to find out which fuse it is in the fuse box diagram. If that is the problem make sure to use the same amperage fuse to replace the burned one with. I fried fuse is usually a sign that you have a short somewhere. But they can also fry for other reasons such as excess moisture somewhere. Sometimes they just burn from age and fatigue. It may solve it to just replace the fuse, but if there really is a short, the new fuse will fry too.

Tail light is burned out on tail light. I have the bulbs but can't figure out how to remove and replace burned out light.


  1. Check with your local auto parts store or look in your owner's manual to find the proper model number of the replacement tail light globe.

  2. Open your trunk or lift your hatchback. Find the cover just on the inside of your vehicle next to the burnt-out bulb.

  3. Turn the two latches counterclockwise to open them so the cover may be removed. In most cases you can turn the latches with your fingers; in some cases you may need a coin or a slot screwdriver to turn them. Remove the cover.

  4. Press the tabs that allow you to remove the tray that holds the tail light globes. There are four tabs on most VW models. Each tab must be depressed to release the tray. Pull the tray out a few inches, as far as the wiring allows.

  5. Press down slightly on the burned-out globe and turn it counterclockwise with your thumb and fingers. It should release easily and then pull straight out. Push the replacement bulb in and turn it clockwise until it locks in place.

  6. Snap the tail light tray back in place. The tray should simply push back into place and the four tabs should "snap" into their locked position. Replace the door cover and turn the door locks clockwise. Test your bulb to see that it is working.

Good Luck
