need to remove tail light to replace signal light bulb
The tail lamp assembly gets unscrewed from the lamp body to the vehicle with the tailgate open. Bulbs get replaced once the lamp assembly is removed.
So that means the interior trim has to be removed first...Correct???
No, you should have access to the lamp without having to pull any trim panels.
The interior trim covers access to the lamp area..I just wanted to make sure you did not pry loose the rear light unit from the exterior of the car...
OK, I stand corrected; I was going by recollection rather than anything else - no shop manual shows how to remove and install the lamp.
