Removal of rear light lens from Yamaha SZR660

I tried to remove the rear light lens on a Yamaha SZR660 which looked like it was retained by only two screws. Having virtually dismantled the rear of the bike I still couldn't get the thing out so I could access the rear light. Has anyone any ideas?
I'm quite prepared to look like a twit when it turns out to be something extremely simple but I'm stuck at the moment. It may just be a lack of force but the bodywork is fragile and expensive to replace so I'd rather be right before I try to force things apart.

How do I replace the rear blinker?


The lens needs to be removed. Look behind the trunk liner/carpet covering the access to the retainers holding the lens in place. Remove the retainers ( could be plastic wing nuts or actual nuts screwed to the tail light studs. ) There may be 3-5 holding the lens in place. Once retainers are removed the lens will pull away from the vehicle and the light socket can be twisted and removed from the lens assembly exposing the bulb

How do I get to the back up light on a 1988 Delta 88?


  1. Most rear lamps can be accessed from inside the trunk. Open trunk and look for access past the carpet.
  2. By pulling back the carpet or removing the large plastic carpet retaining nuts, you can see the back of the light assembly.
  3. If you can reach the bulb from inside the trunk, you don't need to remove the lens assembly to replace the bulbs. But, if you can't reach the bulb and connector assembly, you may need to remove the lens assembly.
  4. If necessary, remove the tail light panel screws and the lens assembly.
  5. You can now simply turn the bulb connector assembly counterclockwise and remove it from the lens housing.
Fig. 8: Once the carpet is pulled down, you can see the retaining wingnuts which must be removed to access the rear bulbs

Replace rear window brake light bulb


I just had to do this, and it isn't all that easy or quick. First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits. (The screws are permanently attached to the lens housing so will not drop into obscurity when the nuts are removed). After removing the nuts, GENTLY work the lens housing away from the car. You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.

You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.

Just reverse these directions to reassemble the housing.

Need to replace rear brake light bulb


I experienced the same problem! After removal of the two screws, apply pushing pressure from the inside out with one hand on the outside of the lens for stability. The lens should push straight out.. There are 2 straight pins that are inserted into a plastic retainer that holds the assembly in place. Good luck
