Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


If it's one of the 2 lights right above the rear bumper all you have to do is open the rear hatch remove 2 screws and the tail light lenses will pull away from the body. If its the 3rd brake you can't just replace the bulbs. Its a sealed unit and it has to be replaced as one piece.
