They screw in from the back. Sometimes the light assy has to be removed.

Turn you high beams on and check your tail light. If its brighter, you have a head light bulb as a tail light bulb. 97-02 are the only ones that should do this. Find a tail light bulb and replace.(I couldn't believe it either).

i am not sure you mean brake lights or tail lights.If brake lights don't work.You have to check out a brake light switch,(it conects to your brake pedal) make sure both wires are conected to the switch.And if tail lights don't work, you have to replace a head light switch.(where you turn your head light on and off)

I am pretty sure it is the same as on my 97. If so, go into the trunk on both sides. Several small bolts are mounted on the firewall. Removing the bolts will loosen the tail lens glass. Read more:

I have a 1995 Mercury Grand Marquis and my mother has a 2003 and they both are the same, so yours probably is also. After you pull the trunk lining away so that you can see the metal, there are 3 large black plastic wing nuts that you unscrew. Once you remove those, the tail light section will come out from the front and then you can get to the bulbs to replace them.

To replace the light, it all depends on the year of the Accord. I have a 5th gen(94-97), and I know how to replace the 4th gen(90-93)

Open the tailgate. On the inside next to the tail light, there will be two plastic covers. Remove them. You will see a Phillips head screw deep in the hole. These hold the light in place. Be careful removing them because they can fall down inside the vehicle. Use a magnetic tip screwdriver if possible. The light will then pull out of the truck. Then remove the plastic light module from the tail light. All the bulbs are connected to this module. Installation is reverse of removal. Just be careful not to drop the screw in the body cavity.

Pop the trunk. Pull back the carpet/plastic piece that covers the back side of the tail light. there are three bolts and two wires with clips. Push the button on the clips and pull them out firmly. Remove the bolts, the whole light should then slide out of the back. Put the new one in, put on the bolts and connect the wires.

1997 Isuzu Trooper tail light bulb replacement: Purchase the correct replacement tail light bulb(s) first, before disassembling the vehicle. See sources and related links below for replacement bulb information. Then consult your owner's manual for the tail light bulb replacement procedure. As simple as it sounds, the owner's manual is the best place to start for bulb replacement instructions and illustrations. You may want to consider replacing both left and right at the same time in order to keep brightness and color equal (optional).

You will need to open the tailgate and the screws that hold the Tail light in will be seen on the side of the fender in the tailgate opening.The light will then pull back as a unit and the bulb sockets will be exposed.

If memory serves me right, each tail light assembly has a printed circuit board that the bulbs plug into. That circuit board burns out. That part is available from the Chevy dealer.
