Hi, I'm Ray Thomas, I'm the owner of Ray's Auto Repair. I'm going to talk about how to replace the taillight today. Basically, most of the cars their taillight lens the bulbs are in the back of the lens. So, what you do is you open the trunk up, and then there's usually panels that's hiding the taillight bulb. So, you got to take those panels off. They are usually pretty simple, a couple of screws or a couple of clips. You take them off and what you do is you see which taillight is burnt out or whatever you want to change. And what you do is you turn them counterclockwise and that's how they come out. And then you put the new bulb in in the socket. And then you put it in the taillight housing. And you just count, you find the position and you. and you kind of turn it clockwise about a quarter degree, maybe 90 degrees. And then you are done. And that's how you change a taillight bulb.
