The taillight assembly on the Toyota Camry is a single assembly unit. The bulbs are accessible from the trunk, and the taillight assembly is removable for replacement or cleaning. If your taillight is cracked or broken, you should replace it as soon as possible. If water leaks into the taillight assembly, it can short out the bulbs and cause damage to the car's electrical system. You can buy a replacement taillight assembly from an auto parts retailer.
Things You'll Need
- Wrench set
Open the Camry's trunk. Pull the plastic cover off the back of the taillight assembly.
Remove the three nuts securing the taillight assembly with a wrench.
Slide the taillight assembly forward away from the rear of the car. Grasp each bulb and twist it slightly counterclockwise then pull back to remove it.
Remove the taillight assembly from the car once the bulbs are disconnected.
