How do you Change, Replace, or Install 1998-2002 Toyota Corolla Tail Light Replacement

Tools required:
  • Flathead screwdriver

  • 10mm wrench or socket

Step 1: Using your screwdriver, remove the plastic panel on the interior of the vehicle's trunk to grant access to the tail light's mounting bolts.

Step 2: Unscrew the 3 mounting bolts that hold the tail light assembly in place.

Two bolts are readily visible, with the other resting beneath the trunk's liner.

Step 3: Depress the tab on the electrical plug, and unplug the harness from the back of the tail light assembly.

Step 4: Remove the tail light assembly from its place in the vehicle's frame.

Step 5: Gently place the new tail light assembly into place.

Be sure to hold the assembly in place with one hand while securing its position by tightening the bolts on the interior.

Step 6: Tighten all of the retaining bolts into place using the 10mm wrench.

Step 7: Reconnect the electrical plug to the tail light assembly.

Step 8: Reattach the plastic cover inside the truck, and secure into place with the plastic flathead nut.
