The light assembly has screws on the outside take them out then you need to firmly place a flathead screw driver on the edge of the assembly to pry it loose.

Hello, It is just two Phillips head screws. Once those are out the rear tail light will come off but go easy on it. It has a couple of plastic pegs on the right or left hand side that go into an assembly.

Open the rear hatch. on the inside of the rear light you will find a snap-off hatch. Open it and you will see the back of the light assembly. It's a 1/4 twist off most likely. pull it out remove the bulb and replace everything with a new bulb.

Inside the rear door entrance, next to the tail light assembly inside the opening of the van, you will see two Phillips head screws. Remove them and the tail light assembly will come off. The bulbs are accessed by turning counter clockwise, and pulling upwards on the light fixture assembly, found on the rear of the tail light assembly. These bulbs pop straight out of their sockets.When replacing the bulb and its' socket, note that there are different sized notches, so that it only goes in one way.

access to the rear brake lights is inside the vehicle. Open the rear hatch and on the rear corners of the vehicle, you will see a small cover plate. Take the cover plate off and this will give you access to the lights.

The tail light is an assembly. The lens is not removable. To replace a bulb you remove the assembly by opening the liftgate, removing two fasteners, and pulling the light rearward.

In the trunk near the quarter panel there are several nuts that hold the rear header on. In the center is the nut that holds the tail light assembly on, it is in the middle of the tail light assembly. Take the nut off, then pull outward on the tail light until the stud comes out of the header, then pull out to the side to release a tab from the backup light fixture. Then take off the appropriate fixture and change the bulb.

When there is erosion in the break light assembly it will do this. The wiring to the break lights may also be grounded out.

For front turn signal bulbs, knock the mirror off - it sits on 3 round posts. For the rear, remove the rear light assembly and the bulbs are accessible from the back.

When the ABS light is on it is for a reason, a sensor could be bad, or another major problem. The light wont go off until the problem is corrected or until the light burns out
