Tools You'll Need

Steps to Replace the Tail Light Bulb

Method 1: Using Push Rivets

  1. Locate the Access Cover: In the fender well directly behind the tail light, you’ll find a round plastic access cover. This cover is held in place by push rivets.

  2. Remove the Push Rivets: Using a flathead screwdriver or a pry tool, carefully pry out the push rivets that secure the access cover. Be gentle as these rivets can break easily.

  3. Access the Bulb: Once the cover is removed, you’ll have access to the tail light bulb.

  4. Replace the Bulb: Remove the old bulb and replace it with a new one.

  5. Secure the Cover: Place the access cover back and secure it using new push rivets. It’s a good idea to have spare rivets on hand as they tend to break sometimes. You can find these at local auto suppliers.

Method 2: Using Pan Head Screws

  1. Locate the Access Cover: Just like in Method 1, locate the round plastic access cover in the fender well directly behind the tail light.

  2. Remove the Push Rivets: Use a pry tool or a flathead screwdriver to remove the existing push rivets.

  3. Access and Replace the Bulb: Follow the same steps as in Method 1 to replace the bulb.

  4. Secure with Screws: Instead of using push rivets to secure the access cover back, use 1/2″ long #14 pan head screws. These screws provide a more secure fit and are less likely to break.

Tips
