I need a little help getting the taillight out so I can change a blown bulb. It looks like the tail light is held on by two bolts that have plastic covers over them. I can't seem to pry the covers off the bolts though. Any ideas??
How about this steps:
Know or evaluate on how to access your blown bulb. A lens cover might need to be removed before you are able to make the change. It is also possible that the change needs to be done via the trunk. Inspect the light to find out which access point you will need to use. If there are no visible screws on the lens cover you will need to change the bulb through the trunk.
For an exterior change, unscrew the lens cover to expose the burnt out bulb. You now need to remove the bulb. Apply light pressure while turning simultaneously to extract the broken bulb. Be careful not to apply too much pressure so you donít break the bulb and cut yourself. It may be quite difficult to remove if the glass is broken. For a trunk change remove the interior panel to make the change.
Once you have expose the bulb you need to determine what replacement you need. Take your used bulb to your local automotive supply store or locate the correct replacement online. Be sure to select the correct bulb for your vehicles particular make and model to ensure a fit.
Once you have obtained the correct replacement bulb you may now install it. First check to see if there is any corrosion in the socket. If so clean with a brush or wipe it clean. With the socket prepared simply screw the bulb back into its socket.
With the bulb in place, replace the lens cover if you did an exterior change. Test the bulbs to make sure you have installed them correctly. Step on the breaks and turn headlights on. Have someone confirm that all bulbs go on.
