Well....SURPRISE!!! The Head-Lamp bulbs are held in place by a thin wire spring clip that is hard to figure which way too move it to release, and you cant see what you are doing, as your hand will be in the way, and this thin wire clip clip's onto a VERY easy too break tab. Patience pays off big time here...but if you do break the tab, the rubber boot seem's able to hold the bulb in place. (mine has been that way about two years now)Would you believe now I have a headlight out. I hope it is much easier
This helped me big time! Thank you!Hi tlsbasom,
Just get hold of the whole assembly with both your hands...at its side and pull it towrds the rear as described by NC State Alumnus.
Putting it back will be a bit tricky, trying to ensure all the clips are fitted properly and also to make sure the lamp assembly properly sits in its original position with the bottom moulding in between the carbody and the bumper.
Let me know if you need further guidance.....
Thats a 2nd generation tail light, not a 3rd generation but similar removal steps, except the 3 gen ones are a pain yo get out of the clips on the outer body panels
