How do you remove the trunk lining of a 2000 Ford Taurus?
There should be some number of plastic pins all around the lining. You should be able to pry out the middle out of a pin with a flathead screwdriver, and then remove the whole pin. Repeat this as many times as necessary in order to remove all the pins, just DON'T lose them!!
Pop the trunk. On both sides of the trunk there are "brackets" for holding the cargo net inplace (if equipped), remove those. Now, pull back the trunk lining. There are about 4 soft nuts holding it in, remove them and the pull out the lense. Now, inside the trunk lid, there are 4 soft nuts holding those in as well. just remove them and take out the lenses. ENJOY
1) open your trunk 2) Where your harness straps into the black pegs, those black pegs unscrew if you twist them, they should be directly behind the tail light. The light bulb socket can be accessed if you move the trunk wall lining. 3) Twist out socket, change bulb and twist back in, replace the lining and screw that back in with the black peg
Brake Light Inside the trunk, remove rubber gasket from the plastic latch cover. Pull off the latch cover and then pull off carpet lining from the trunk walls. There will be 4 nuts holding the brake light assembly in place, unscrew only the four exposed ones! Neglect the ones inside the holes in the trunk wall, those have nothing to do w/ the brake light assembly. Slowly remove the assembly and twist the defected bulb…
Try looking in the trunk on the driver side. On my 1999 there is a finger sized hole in the trunk lining about 6 inches below the trunk lid weatherseal with a red pushbutton inside the hole. Push that switch and the fuel pump should start working. Your Owners Manual should give you the exact location.
If a 2000 Ford Taurus ses has a CD button on the dashboard does that mean it has a CD somewhere or is this just an optional feature?
What year on my 2000 after removing all the nuts that hold the lights on the trunk. I couldn't remove the assembly with the trunk open. I fought this several times with no luck. So as a last resort I closed the trunk and the assembly came out. The book showed it coming out with trunk open. HOPE THIS HELPS
Open the trunk. Locate where the back of the light is. You will see 3 or 4 black plastic wingnuts holding the trunk lining on. Remove those. Carefully peel the trunk lining to reveal the back of the light and 3 or 4 more wing nuts. Remove the wing nuts. The entire tail light assembly will now be removable from the car. Be careful because it is still attached to the car by the wires…
