there are covers to get off then wing nuts to un- screw off. the rear lens can be pulled but not far; wires are still attached.


look on the outter lip of the trunk before the seal.

Hi, I have my second 1990 Reatta. Tail lights are many....there are 12 in the rear plastic lens.Remove the wingnuts holding the carpeting to the frame. You'll then see the screws on top of the black plastic lens and screws through the frame and holding the rear lens on. Good luck, it not bad as it sounds. there are lanyards attached to the frame and the lens unit that will hold it firmly in place while you change-out the bulb(s). If you've got the money, do them all..
