Tools required:
  • 8mm socket with extension

Step 1: Remove the thumbscrew that keeps your trunk liner in place (on the interior of the taillight).

Step 2: With the bulb sockets now exposed, you can change the bulbs by unscrewing the socket from the back and pulling it from the casing.

NOTE: If you ordered your replacement tail light from Go-Parts, it will include new bulbs. All you must do is unplug the wiring harness from the back of the bulb sockets and move onto the next step.

Step 3: Using the 8mm socket, remove the 4 nuts that hold the tail light assembly in place.

Three are located around the casing, with the fourth being in the recessed area beside it.

Step 4: Remove the tail light casing from the vehicle.

Step 5: Place the new assembly in place and replace the bolts that secure its position.

Step 6: Reconnect the wiring harnesses to power the tail light.
