you have to take apart the light assembly. open tail gate/barn doors to back. you will see 2 black covers, probably about 1/2 to 1 inch in diameter. pull the plugs off. in the holes you will see 2 screws (make sure you put something that can catch the screws, ie like a piece of duct tape or paper shaped in a half pipe just in case the screws drop). take out both screws. gently move the light fixture, you might have to tap on the corner of the light (near the body of the truck). the fixture swings out from the back away from the truck (have 2 little hinges on opposite side of the screws). remove electrical connection, remove 2 screws. take needle noise pliers to the base of the light bulb, and gently wiggle back and forth. you will see 2 little clips on each side of the bulb, DO NOT TRY TO PRY THE BULB OUT. get replacement and put into socket. install is reverse instructions as removal of light assembly
