How do you change a tail light for Jeep Liberty?
1) You will need to open the rear swing door. 2) On the inside jam there are two torx headed screws (T-15's if I remember correctly). 3) Unscrew the two torx screws. 4) The light is now held by two mounting tabs (small spherical headed plastic sets that go through a rubber grommet). 5) You will need to pry the light casing off (easy pressure with a good size flat head screw driver will do the trick). 6) The lilght bulbs are twist mount settings inside the light casing. 7) Twist out the mount setting, change the bulbs, and reset the light mountings. 9) To put the light casing push the light casing back on and put in the screws.

Open tailgate and use a #20 Torx screwdriver to remove two screws located on the inner side tail light assembly. On the driver's side, the screws are accessable through the t…ailgate hinge area with the gate open. Pull taillight assembly straight back from the vehicle to get it off. You may need to utilize a wedge to gently work the top and bottom of assembly away from vehicle on outer side. If so, be careful to use plastic wedge or a protective layer (such as a thin piece of cardboard) next to the body to prevent scratching the paint. Once removed, twist applicable light cover counter clockwise and pull to access lightbulb. You may want to apply a small amount of lithium grease to the two plastic stud holes before reinstalling the cover to make it easier to remove the next time.
See the amswer for "How do you change the rear stop light bulb on a 2002 Jeep Liberty passenger side". It works.
Simply use a Torx wrench. I can't remember if it's a size 15 or 20, but it's pretty easy. Look closely for the Torx screws. I believe you have to open the tailgate to see the…m. As stated above, the inside edge of each light has two Torx screws, but there are also two plastic "pop-rivet(?)" type connectors along the outside edges that come loose with a gentle jerk away from the vehicle.
Trying to replace passenger side tailight on a 2002 Jeep Liberty. Cannot disconnect the plug and the replacement connector looks different from the original! Thanks Jim
Open up your tailgate and on the sides of the taillights will be screws, you need a Allen wrench or Allen type screwdriver. Unscrew them and pull out the taillight assembly (u…se a little muscle it'll come out,don't drop it) there you will find the bulb sockets gently twist out and replace the bulb ( the bulb number should be on the base,use this for replacement bulb) reinstall the taillight and put the screws back in. NOTE: the driver side access to the screws are a little tight and the passenger side is completely visible when you open the tailgate (2 screws per tailight )..
Answer 1) Open the swing door and look into the hinge area. There should be two torx head screws. These are size T15. 2) Remove the screws and then remove the len…s. The lens is held by two barbs that are held into the car body by plastic grommets. 3) Insert a plastic or wooden shim in the gap (towards the front of the car) between the tail light and the car body. 4) Pry the lens away from the car body. The lens should "pop" out of the grommets. 5) Remove the twist lock lamps and replace the bulb. 6) Reverse the steps to reassemble.
1. Turn the front wheels full lock toward the same side of the vehicle as the lamp being serviced. 2. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. 3. R…emove the four fasteners securing the front of the adjacent right or left front fender wheel liner to the lower edge of the front bumper fascia (3) and the outboard surface of the frame rail ahead of the front wheel. 4. Reach between the front of the wheel liner and the lower fascia to access the back of the front side marker lamp unit housing (1). 5. Firmly grasp the front side marker bulb socket (2) on the back of the lamp housing and rotate it counterclockwise about 30 degrees to unlock it. 6. Pull the socket and bulb straight out from the keyed opening in the housing. 7. Pull the base of the bulb straight out of the socket. LAMP NOTE: Vehicles manufactured for export markets do not have a bulb, socket or wiring provided to illuminate the front side marker lamp. The front side marker lamp housing and lens are present, but serve only as a reflector on export vehicles.
replacing brakelight for 04 Jeep Liberty . By opening the tailgate, you will see two star headed screws. you may need an extension and good lights to get to them. Carefully… looses each one with firm pressure using the old standard, (righty tighty, left lucy). Again, be careful not to strip these screws because the can be hard to find. Next, use a medium sized screwdriver and apply steady pressure between the body and the light case. (MY HUSBAND JUST PULLED THE LIGHT CASE OFF WITHOUT HAVING TO USE A SCREWDRIVER) There are two pins that hold the brake light in place and they need to pulled back carefully so as not to scratch the paint. The brake light is the compartment on the bottom (ACTUALLY IN MY JEEP IT WAS THE TOP CASE) , twist and pull. The unit will come out and then the bulb can be replaced. It should pop into place. Everything else will work in reverse when it comes to assembling the whole unit. (THIS WAS HELPFUL! THANK YOU TO WHOMEVER POSTED IT!!)
To access the driver's side tail light, open the tailgate. There are two torque head screws that hold the bulb housing in place. These screws can be removed by reaching a regu…lar length torque screw driver through the hinge area. After the screws are removed, simply pry the housing loose. The bulbs are removed by turning the bulb sockets 90* left and then pull out. I have replaced only the driver's side light housing, so I'm not sure how to access the passenger side light housing. It should be similar.
Answer I own a 202 Liberty. I changed the rear brake light/ tail light myself. To change the passenger side is easy. Open the rear door and locate the two screws …that hold the fixture to the body. You should be able to see both of them easily while looking at the fixture from the rear of the car. The tool needed is a T15 torx screwdriver, at least that is what I used. This tool is needed because the head of the screw is a "star" pattern and requires the torx screwdriver bit. If you have no idea what I am talking about just search for "torx" on wikipedia and you'll learn. Anyway, back to the task. Put the torx head of the screwdriver into the top of the torx screw head on the vehicle and turn counter-clockwise (to the left) and remove the screw. Remove the other screw using the same method. To remove the entire lens fixture, you need to "pop out" two plastic barbs that are inset into two plastic connectors in the car body. This step is completely reversible, if you do it properly. To "pop out" the lens you will need a wood or plastic shim. Don't use a screwdriver you will either crack the lens or chip the paint or both. Take the thin edge of your shim and slide it between the car body and the tail light lens and push it into the now widening gap. Rock the lens fixture back and forth a bit while prying with the shim gently to the rear until the barbs holding the lens "pop out" of their holes. Change the bulb by grasping the round gray plastic part that holds the lamp (for the brake light, its the top one) and turning it about one fifth of the way around to the left (counterclockwise) the gray lamp holder should now easily come out of the fixture. Pull the lamp out of the gray holder and replace with the new lamp. Replace the lamp holder into the lens fixture. Line up the barbs on the lens with the holes in the car body and hit the rear-facing portion of the lens assembly sharply and firmly with the heel of your hand. Replace the screws and tighten snuggly. Don't overtighten, you might crack the lens fixture or strip the threads out of the car body and the lens will not stay in place. Test the new lamp by having a volunteer step on the brake while you observe the light operation. If your lamp does not glow when the brake is pressed, you may have changed the wrong lamp. To change the passenger side is a slight bit more tricky as you will need to open the back door all the way to the point of being parallel to the left side of the car (or in other words - perpendicular (rt. angle) to the rear of the vehicle). After you have the back door open properly, look through from the inside the hinge area and you will see the top of two screws (the same size as the ones on the passenger side). Place your screwdriver into the head of the screw from the inside of the door and turn the screw counter-clockwise. You may want to make sure you have a magnetic screwdriver so that you don't lose the screw into the hinge or bumper area forever and need to go buy a new screw. If you don't have a magnetic screwdriver, you might be able to reach down inside the opening between the lens fixture and the door to hold the screw with your fingers while loosening it. After you remove both screws, you will need a wood or plastice shim to "pop" out the barbs on the lens fixture that is holding the lens to the car body. After removing the lens, remove the lamp holder (for the brake light (it is the top one) by turning the gray plastic part about one fifth of the way counter-clockwise. The lamp holder should come out esily and from this point you should be able to pull the lamp from the holder. Replace with new lamp and reverse the steps. Test the lamp to make sure the repair was successful.
There is a single screw that is easy to remove. The trick after that is to take a screwdriver, wrap it in a cloth to avoid chipping your paint, and pry off the light cov…er. It will feel very tight, but it will pop off and can be easily put back on.
Check for usage of incorrect bulb. Check for incorrect (excessive) or fluctuating battery voltage with engine speed of 2500 RPM and while revving the engine (snap thro…ttle.) Check for water in the lens. Check for poor connection (loose or corroded) at battery terminals. Check for poorly functioning rear shock absorbers, bad tires, imbalanced tire, or bent rear axles or wheel rims. Check for lights remaining on when they should be off. Check for usage of rough road surfaces or off-road usage of vehicle. Correct as needed. Please let me know if this helps.
This is an easy one. Remove the two screws that hold the taillight to the body. They are located just inside the tailgate. The taillight has two tabs the fit into slots …opposite the screws, so you'll need to swing the assembly as if you're opening it like a door. The brake light is the top bulb on the back of the taillight. This is assuming that you weren't referring to the "3rd eye" brake light, which I haven't done.
The two map reading lights next to the trip computer are bulb type 194. There is a hole for a small phillips head screw at the front end of the plastic bezel, very near the ed…ge of the rear view mirror. Remove the screw, set it aside, then grasp the bezel with your fingertips at the back left and right sides, closest to the map lights themselves. Pull firmly but carefully straight down; the two spring clips holding the entire bezel will come free. The bezel unit will hang by the wiring harness. Turn the bezel over to look at the back side. You will notice the bulbs, and between them, a clip connector that supplies the bulbs with power. If you are worried about shorting your replacement bulbs or simply cautious, use a flathead screwdriver to lift the catch on the connector clip and pull it free. The bulbs will go out. The bulbs themselves are mounted in plastic clip connectors within the reflectors.With a very small flathead screwdriver, press inward, toward the bulb, from each side, and free the connector from the reflector. Carefully remove and replace the bulbs. Make certain that your replacements fit in the hole in the bottom of the reflector, and snap the connector back in place. Re-connect the clip connector which supplies the bulb with power. Test for function by clicking the lens/switch, and by closing/opening the driver door. Replace the bezel and screw, by first aligning the two spring tabs, and popping the bezel back in place. Tightening the screw will snug the bezel to the headliner, and you should be done.
