How do you change the tail light bulb on a 2001 Ford Taurus SE?
They don't make it easy to change the tail/brake light. You have to first pop out the pins holding the liner down and pull back the trunk lining behind the tail light you need to replace. There are three bolts under the lining that are holding the lamp fixture in. After you remove these, gently pull the lamp fixture out and un-clip the wires (there are plastic clips that lock the wires in place). Then, take each bulb out by turning the "knob" half-way counter-clockwise. The bulb will just slide out. Be sure NOT to touch the glass of the new bulb (use a paper towel or cloth) as the oil from your fingers will cause the bulb to shatter when it lights up. Now, put everything back together! Good luck!
