Replacing tail/brake/turn signal/backup lamp bulbs
The tail/brake/turn signal and backup lamp bulbs are located in the tail
lamp assembly. Follow the same steps to replace either bulb.

  1. Make sure the headlamp control is in the off position and open the
    trunk.
  2. Lift out trunk floor carpeting panel to access a luggage scuff plate
    (hard molding) and a trunk side panel (dark grey, soft wheelhouse side
    trim panel) at the lamp area.
  3. Carefully pull/push the trunk side panel (dark grey, soft wheelhouse
    side trim panel) outboard to expose the lamp assembly. The most
    effective point to grasp the trunk side panel when pulling it out from the
    luggage scuff plate is at it’s bottom edge where that edge meets the
    exposed sheet metal of the trunk floor.
    Note: Do not allow the trunk side panel to remain bent and untucked
    from the luggage scuff plate (hard molding) for a long period of time.
    Doing so may result in permanent deformation.
  4. Remove the bulb socket byimage
    turning it counterclockwise and
    pulling it straight out.
  5. Pull the bulb from the socket and
    push in the new bulb.
  6. Install the bulb socket into the
    lamp assembly by rotating it
    clockwise.
  7. Carefully push the trunk side
    panel (dark grey, soft wheelhouse
    side trim panel) back in position to the luggage scuff plate (hard
    molding).
  8. Install trunk floor carpeting panel.
