Access to the tail light cluster should be through panels in the rear corners of the vehicle. Remove the panel and you can remove the tail light cluster to replace the bulbs. This is the position on most sedans, unless, like on pick-ups, the tail light lenses have screws which allow the lenses to be removed to change the bulbs.

Need to know how to change out the rear bulb on a 2002 ford escort zx2... i see a bunch of wires and can not get the tail light cover off

Most modern tail lights are replaced by gripping the socket (inside the trunk) and twisting counter clockwise. The tail light socket and the bulb will then pull out toward the front of the car. The bulb is removed from the socket by pushing down against the spring and rotating it counterclockwise with relation to the socket (like opening a childproof pill bottle). Good luck.

1998 ford escort wagon brake lights out. bulbs and fuses changed.

Sounds like your brake light switch has gone bad. It is located on your brake pedal and is easy to change and relatively inexpensive. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

1998 ford escort wagon light in shifter console out.

If just the shifter light is out then it is not the fuse, the top plate of the shifter just pulls off, on some models there are 2 screws, the bulb is below that top plate.
