I guess you mean the small map lights in front. Use a small screwdriver to gently pry the lens from the housing, be careful, they break easy, even the dealer techs break them. I think the bulb may only be available at a dealer. No, the bulbs are available almost anywhere. It's just a 194 bulb.
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 tailgate hinge area with the gate open. Pull taillight assembly straight back from the vehicle to get it off. You may need to u…tilize 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. (MORE)

02 Jeep Liberty Tail Light Changing . \nThere are two screws holding the light casing in place. On the passenger side, these screws are forward facing and easy to spot after you open the back door. On the drivers side, the screws are on the inside of the panel and can be accessed once the door …is open with a screw driver. The screws require star bits. Remove the two screws and then pull straight out - hard. The light casing is held in place with a couple of ball and socket joints. The first time you remove the casing, it is very difficult to pull the casing off. If you can get a second person to hit the side of the light casing with the palm of their hand or their fist while you pull on the light casing, that helps a lot. Once you pull off the casing, you will be able to see where the bulbs are located and can change them. (MORE)

Open your glove box and empty it out. There will be two supports on each side of the glove box, push these towards each other and the glovebox will kind of "fall out." It will still be hinged but hanging down far. You will then see a 5 wire connector going to a mount with two screws. Unscrew both of… these with a nut driver, the whole thing will pull out. It is a creditcard sized resistor board. Unplug the cable from the resistor. This is what you need to replace to make it work correctly with 1 2 and 3. -RB (MORE)
Changing taillight assembly Jeep liberty I copied and pasted this from another blog.....it works perfectly!!!! For the drivers side taillight assembly remove the two screws on the side of taillight assembly. You need a special star screw driver (called "Torx", the come in different sizes). Don't st…rip the screws. If you do you will be in a world of hurt trying to remove these screws. You have to swing the tailgate open to see the screws. Once those screws are removed you have to pry the taillight assembly from the vehicle. Pry it straight out using a couple of large screw drivers as pry bars. Be careful not to scratch the paint. There are two plastic shafts that clip into the body. They run along the outside edge of the light assembly. Apply steady pressure with the pry until they come loose. It will take some force to break them free. Do not try to pull the assembly out with your hands from outside the vehicle as you will probably break the assembly. (MORE)

Open the trunk. Pull out the 4 clips that holds the middle trim piece that's between the taillights. Then you can pull out the clips that holds the carpet from behind the drivers side taillight. After you do that then you'll see 3 10mm nuts, remove them being careful that you don't drop them. Its no…t fun finding them. After the nuts are removed the taillight pops out and you can remove the bulb. It should be a 7440 bulb. After you're done put everything back in the reverse order. (MORE)

\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nSorry, the question should read "after replacing the gas cap"\n. \nAdded: It may not be the gas cap that is causing the fault. You could check for other error codes.

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 regular 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. (MORE)
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 ca…r. 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. (MORE)

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 cover. It will feel very tight, but it will pop off and can be easily put back on.
Answer . you just replace it like other cars, get an car enginner to fix it.

This problem is very common on the WJ grand Cherokees on mine i spent about an hour farting around "fault finding" (evey where you tested with a meter was fine). Put it back together and it wouldn't work.What I found it to be was an earth fault in the TAILLIGHT ASSEMBLY. I think this is caused by to…o much heat distorting the base where the lamp holder twists in. I used the soldering iron (Soldering Bolt)and put a dab of solder on the little brass terminals to build up the height a bit (i have since read you can prise them up a little with a small screwdriver) Just remember if using the pry method don't be heavy handed.This fixed the problem on mine and has been good ever since.What i have also done since is replace the bulbs with RED LED cluster bulbs which i purchased on eBay (they are supposed to last for about a Zillion hours but run much cooler because they draw next to no power. The ones i purchased were 36 led 3157 wedge type to suit a 2000 WJ. You can't see any difference when operating. (MORE)

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 t…he back of the taillight. This is assuming that you weren't referring to the "3rd eye" brake light, which I haven't done. (MORE)

What would cause the driver side brake light not to work on 2002 jeep liberty Right side works tail lights on left side work have replaced bulb have fire all the way and have checked fuses?
The most likely problem is one I have found on other make cars. The tail lights are truly assemblies on newer cars. Older cars had light bulb sockets which had to be removed from inside the trunk to be re-lamped. Tail lights now are completely removed from the body to be re-lamped. Most tail light…s need to have a wiring harness unplugged fro complete removal. The back panel of the tail light then must be disassembled in some manner to gain access to the bulbs. This panel is where the problem lies. In the bottom of each bulb socket are pins which make contact with the base of the bulb. These pins can become bent or corroded and cause the problem you describe. (just got done doing a similar repair to my daughter's Grand Am. Bent pins not making contact). (MORE)
Go to Schucks, ask for the bulb, buy it and ask the guy to show you how to install it. They do that at Schucks. It's not too tough, but it's good to have someone show you.
