1A Auto shows you how to repair, fix, change or replace a broken, damaged, burnt out, cracked, faded, cloudy or chipped tail light. This video is applicable to 2004-2008 Chrysler Pacifica models. You will first learn how to replace a tail light bulb if you just need to change that, and then we show you how to remove a tail light assembly if it happens to be broken and you need to change that as well, and then install a replacement.
"In this video, we're going to show you how to repair a tail light on this Chrysler Pacifica. We'll first show you how to replace a tail light bulb if you just need to change the bulb, and what the process is for that, and we will then show you how to install a new tail light as well yours is broken and you need to fix that as well. At 1AAuto.com we sell a new, very nice tail light replacement for this vehicle. This tail light repair job is a pretty easy process, you'll need a 10 millimeter socket with a ratchet and s small screwdriver.
On either side when you open up your tail gate you'll see two bolts that hold in your tail light, 10 millimeter socket ratchet like this or 10 millimeter wrench. I recommend the socket ratchet because this can be a little difficult to get out sometimes.
I'll fast forward here, as we speed up and remove those two bolts. Once you have those out, you shake your light around a little bit. Pull up and out. If you just are looking to change the tail light bulb, all these bulbs they just twist counterclockwise and come out. Bulbs, you just pull it straight out, and that in.
If you have a broken tail light you'll want to take out this, move this little red connector, push it up like that. Then there's a tab right here, press that tab and disconnect your light. You'll need to transfer your harness over to the new light so you'll want to work this out, just use that small screwdriver to try to push these clips through.
Let me speed it up here. Those clips are a little bit of a pain. You just pull on that connector from one side then use your screwdriver to push on the other side. If you want to you could cut a corner by just pulling the connector off and leaving the clip behind, then your connector will kind of be flopping there and could rattle in the quarter panel of the vehicle, but sometimes getting those clips out could be a little bit frustrating.
Okay, just turn all of these again like I said earlier, turn counterclockwise. Now, we have the new tail light from 1A Auto. Do this one first, twist the lock, twist the lock, and reinstall that right in there. Plug in there, lead, and then push the lock, put the light in place and just kind of peek back in here if the tail lamp is pinned, just push it in.
I'll speed it up from here on out. Just tightening up those bolts nice and firm, you don't want to over-tighten them, you don't want to break the light, but get them on there nice and tight so it doesn't rattle. That's it, that is how you change a tail light bulb and how you remove and replace a tail light assembly as well on 2004-2008 Chrysler Pacifica models.
