Open tailgate and use a #20 Torx screwdriver to remove two screws located on the inner side tail light assembly. On the driver's side, the screws are accessable through the tailgate hinge area with the gate open.
Pull taillight assembly straight back from the vehicle to get it off. You may need to utilize a wedge to gently work the top and bottom of assembly away from vehicle on outer side. If so, be careful to use plastic wedge or a protective layer (such as a thin piece of cardboard) next to the body to prevent scratching the paint.
Once removed, twist applicable light cover counter clockwise and pull to access lightbulb.
You may want to apply a small amount of lithium grease to the two plastic stud holes before reinstalling the cover to make it easier to remove the next time.
replace rear tail light bulb
Trying to replace passenger side tailight on a 2002 Jeep Liberty. Cannot disconnect the plug and the replacement connector looks different from the original! Thanks Jim
The 2006 Jeep Liberty rear tail light lens does not come off. The tail light is seal. You can access the tail light lightbulb through the back of the tail light, in the cargo compartment.
Tail light lens, or assemble.
take the screws out if the tail light and pull the old one out
you don't replace the tail light you just replace the bulb in it
Check the fuse, it is a separate fuse for the right and left side as well as for the tail light and turn signals.
Is your tail light out? Is the relay good? Replace the bulbs in your tail lights, should cost about $4. If that does not do it, go to your local parts store and buy a new relay. Rarely a bad switch.
there are 2 torx head screws that hold the tail light on. you will need to open the back gate to get to them. then there are two snap connectors that hold the tail light to the body. you will need to pull straight back torward the rear of the jeep to get these to come loose.
