These are the same passenger to drivers. If you like this video, please click subscribe. We have a ton more information on this and many other vehicles, and if you ever need parts for your car, you can follow the link down in the description or 1AAuto.com. Here are the items you will need for this repair.

Remove the three plastic tabs. This is called the tail lamp close out panel. We'll use a trim tool for this. You can use the plastic one, or I have a steel one here. You can also do this with a pair of needle nose pliers of a flat blade screw driver. Just lift the center tab up, you don't need to remove it fully. Then, pop the base of it out. We'll do the same thing on the other two. Remove the close out panel.

The tab to release the electrical connector is on the bottom where my index finger is now. Pinch that and remove it. Rotate the bulb socket a quarter turn counterclockwise, and remove it. Wiggle the bulb out. Install your new one. Line it back up into the back of the taillight housing. Rotate it a quarter turn clockwise, then reconnect your electrical connector.

Disconnect the electrical connector. Rotate the bulb socket a quarter turn counterclockwise, and remove it. Then, carefully wiggle the bulb out of the socket. Install your new bulb. Install the socket back into the housing at the same angle you removed it from, and rotate it clockwise a quarter turn to lock it into place. Reconnect your electrical connector.

Install your closeout panel, and set the three tabs back in. Leave the tops popped up. Set the bases in fully. Then, you simply push them down, and you're good to go.
