Default All Most Hate to Ask But...........

How do I change my drivers side brake light bulb? From inside the trunk?

It looks like there is a panel under the fender. I am just guessing I dont want to start taking thing apart fore nothing.

Take a look at your taillight, you will see one screw holding it in. I don't remember the size torx bit, sorry. After the screw is out, you can gently pry on the taillight housing and it should come out. At this point, you will be able to see the bulb you need to replace. Hope this helps.

That's right - there is only one screw holding it in.

Not sure I wold want that guy working on my Ford,,,, ah PT Cruiser. Wrong tools and he was a little rough on the taillight assembly. The corect tool is a Torx head driver, but I am not sure of the size of the top of my head.

HA! - I didn't watch the whole video. I figured it would explain the simplicity of fixing the lamp.
