Open hatch and remove strap and handle. Remove rear panel attached to hatch by popping off of hatch. Be careful because the clips are not strong. Use bulb 921 @ 18W.

Remove the tail light assembly (as I recall, it attaches with a couple of screws and is clipped to the body). Remove the bulb holder, replace the bulb, reassemble.

The backup light switch is under the air filter assembly. You'll have to remove the assembly to get at it. There are only two wires on top of the transaxel assembly. One is a very obvious ground wire, the other is the backup light switch. Have fun, you'll need a 10mm wrench and a 12mm wrench for the job.

you can replace existing backups, or you can append the backup

To replace a tail light bulb in a 1986 to 1989 Chevy Celebrity: 1. Inside the trunk next to the quarter panel there are 3 nuts that hold the rear header on. The middle bolt holds the tail light assembly on, take it off. 2. Pull the tail light assembly out enough for the stud to clear the body then pull to the side to pull the tabs out of the backup light assembly. 3. Give a slight twist to the proper socket to take it out of the tail light assembly and you can then replace the bulb.

Replacing tail/stop/turn/sidemarker/backup lamp bulbs The tail/stop/turn/sidemarker/backup lamp bulbs are located in the same portion of the tail lamp assembly, one just below the other. Follow the same steps to replace either bulb. Note: Your vehicle is equipped with a backup lamp assembly containing integral multiple light emitting diodes (LED). See your authorized dealer for the replacement LED module. 1. Make sure the headlamp switch is in the off position and then open the liftgate to expose the lamp assembly bolts. 2. Remove the two bolts from the lamp assembly. 3. Carefully remove the lamp assembly away from the vehicle by pulling the assembly straight out to expose the bulb socket. DO NOT TIP THE LAMP ASSEMBLY SIDEWAYS. 4. Rotate the bulb socket counterclockwise and remove from lamp assembly. 5. Pull bulb straight out of socket and snap in the new bulb. 6. Install the bulb socket into the lamp assembly and rotate clockwise. 7. Carefully install the tail lamp assembly on the vehicle by securing the lamp assembly with two bolts.

Open the tailgate, notice two small Phillip head screws, remove them, the complete lense assembly will now wiggle out the back exposing the twist out lamp sockets, twist out the backup light socket and remove the bad bulb, replace with a new one and reverse procedure for assembly. Thank you!

Backup is only as important as your data. Can you easily replace everything on your hard disk? If so backup is not important. Otherwise backing up can really save your bacon.

Answered in another forum which was specific to Tacoma models 2005 and later. "I have the same issue - Found a picture of a replacement taillight assembly and the assembly is held in by more than 2 bolts - I'm still trying to find the 3rd bolt - 2 of the bolts are 10mm Hex Bolts at the top and bottom of the Taillight assembly when the rear tailgate is down. This loosens the assy - But somehow a third fasten point somewhen under the wheel well or behind the Bed Liner prevents me from getting it removed. There must be a simpler way to replace the Bulbs? CORRECTION: To replace a tail light bulb in Toyota Tacoma 2005 2006 tail light Lower tailgate, on the inside near the latch, remove the upper and lower 10mm bolts, the two without washers. The whole tail light assembly should now be loose, and move in and out a little bit. There are only 2 push-in plastic posts holding it now, so gently but firmly pull the assembly straight back and it will pop out. Wires will still be attached, don't pull too hard. Twist CCW and pull out the corresponding bulb sockets to replace the blinker, backup, or tail light bulbs. UPDATE: Check out the picture of the removed light assembly via the "Related Link" below. Those posts are flared. Meaning they're a pain to remove. It felt like I was about to break the assembly, but as long as you're pulling straight out, you should be fine. There's no other way...."
