Tail light is out..do i need a fuse or bulb?


If just 1 tail light out it is your bulb, check for corrosion in bulb holder aswel, when you fit any rear bulb give the bulb holders and plugs a spray with wd40, stops moisture & prevents corrosion.

How do you remove the tail light lens cover for a 1987 Nissan Pickup truck


You can't remove the lens cover. The tail lights are molded as one piece. If you want to change the bulbs, there should be an access panel inside the truck box right behind the tail lights that gives you access to the bulbs. There are also screws to remove the entire tail light assembly if it needs replacing.

How do i replace the tail light bulb


Open the trunk, and pull back the carpet behind the tail light assembly-- you should see 3 different sets of wires going into the back of the tail light assembly. Pick the one you need to replace, and give it about a quarter turn counter-clockwise, and the bulb, harness, and wire can be pulled out of the tail light. Replace the burned out bulb in the socket, and reinstall the bulb just as you removed it.
If you have difficulty getting to the wiring harnesses to dislodge them from the tail light assembly, you can remove the tail light entirely by unscrewing the black plastic wingnuts that hold the tail light assembly in place. It may take a little bit of effort to get them started, but will allow you to see what you are doing a bit better.

You want to change the tail light bulb?

The process for replacing tail light bulbs is the same in all models. If you have a burnt-out tail light bulb, you may need to replace the brake light, the reverse light or the turn signal. The procedure to replace each of the bulbs is the same.



    Instructions

    1. Open the Hummer's rear swing gate. This will expose the edge of the vehicle's tail light assembly. You'll see two small Phillips head screws that hold the tail light assembly in place. Put on your gloves.

    2. Remove the two screws from the tail light assembly. Pull the tail light out and inspect the back for two bulbs. The top bulb is the brake light and turn signal. The bottom bulb is the reverse bulb. Determine which bulb you need to replace.

    3Rotate the bulb's socket counterclockwise to disconnect it. Unplug the bulb from its socket.

    4Push the replacement bulb into its socket firmly. Insert the socket back into the tail light. Turn it clockwise to secure it in place.

    5Place the tail light into its cradle. Hold it with one hand and replace the Phillips head screws with the other.

Yes, The tail light works on a different part of the bulb than the brake light. That bulb has a burned out tail light filiment. Needs to be replaced.

Replace rear tail light bulb on a 2005 nissan maxima


Open the trunk, from the inside remove the side trunk liner (by removing the plastic tabs the liner can be pulled back). Once the liner is pulled back you will need to remove two nuts which secure the tail light in place. Once the two nuts are removed you can start pulling the whole tail light assembly out. There are two other tabs that secure the tail light in place which may give you some resistance but the light should come out without too much force once the two nuts are removed.
Once the tail light is out you can change whatever bulbs you need to.

I cant get the tail light out to change the bulb


No tools needed.

Beetles: Round plug inside trunk pops out.
Beetle Convts: Grille-looking rectangular panel pops out.

Reach in and you'll feel a large finger-grip able nut, back it off (DON'T DROP
IT) and place it somewhere retrievable. Take a small-flat-bladed screwdriver and wrap it in cloth so you don't scratch the paint. Poke said protected blade between the inside body joint and the tail light, gently pry tail light out. Remove offending bulb, replace with new. Installation is, as they say, the reverse of removal.

Left Tail Light not coming on


Sounds like one of two possibilites, the light itself may be a double filiament meaning there is one bulb which does both tail light and brake. One of the filiaments in the bulb could be burned out, try changing the bulb. If not that, then the realy might be damaged which gives power to the tail light. It's a bit of a bigger problem to diagnose.

Break light problem


Do you know if the brake light bulbs are working? (are the bulbs good?). (the bulbs have two parts, one for brake lights the other for running lights)
If the third brake light bulb is working the brake lights should be with good light bulbs.
