You cannot change the bulb from the inside the trunk. First unclip the electric cord leading to the rubber housing on the inside on the trunk. Next, use a flat head screwdriver to pry off the rubber housing. This needs to be done so that you can separate the outside light fixture from the car body. You will see the Three 7/16 inch bolts that connect the outside light cover to the car body from the inside. Take off the three bolts and carefully remove the entire light fixture from the body of the car. You will see two turn-type connections housing the actual light bulbs. Turn these and pull out light fixture. The brake light is the inside one. The turn signal has an additional clip on it that must be unclipped first before turning the housing. The bulbs just pop out with simple force. Replace, reconnect housings, fixtures, and your ready to roll. Don't know why Ford made this procedure so hard.
remove the trunk lining or bend it back easy where the brake light is to access it and change it out.
If you open the trunk and go under the 3rd stop light, you should be able to pull the lining of the trunk down so you can change it...
You must remove the plastic "buttons" holding the trunk lining (flathead screw driver). Remove enough to get lining out of the way to have access to the back of the tail light assembly.
never done a tercel before, but generally the back lights and brake lights are reached by going into the trunk or hatcback. you may have to pull back some lining to reach the lights
In the trunk there are some plastic nobs unscrew them and remove the lining on right/left depending on which it is. Once you have that done you should see all the nuts and stuff there.
From inside the trunk.
Look behind a panel in the trunk
Usually through the back panel in the trunk
Inside the trunk.
well you change it from the outside
remove the felt lining in the trunk. this will allow you access to the bulbs.
The brake lights are located in the trunk of a 1997 Acura Integra. To replace them open the trunk and find the plastic housing. Remove and replace the bulbs.
