Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of Thanks. In this video, we show you how to service the taillight on this 2005 Dodge Durango. The only tool you'll need is a T25 Torx driver. We show you both if you just need to change bulbs as well as if you need a whole new taillight because it's broken. We do sell the new taillight assemblies at

Okay, to service your taillight, obviously open up the tailgate. These little clips here, use a screwdriver and then start prying them out. Then pull them right out. Then grab hold of your taillight and pull it down and out. Then here is a little kind of safety tab. Use the screwdriver again. Pry this down, and then squeeze and disconnect there.

Okay, if you break a taillight, you'll want to replace it with a new one from 1A Auto. You'll want to take all these kind of shipping covers off. Then, again, remove your connector plate for the newer one. I'm just going to speed up here. I'm using a T25 Torx screwdriver to remove the three screws that hold the connector plate into the taillight. If necessary, the bulbs pull straight out and then push in. Okay. The connector plate goes right into the new 1A Auto light. You'll just have to kind of use a little force to start the screws in.

Here, again, I'm just going to fast forward as I install those three screws. When you tighten them up, you want to tighten them up firm, but don't over tighten them. Okay, make sure you reconnect and lock that on. There's a couple just some little pins here that go right into receptacles there. Kind of look them in. Put that right on and push these pins into place.
