How do you replace the brake light - tail light bulb in a 1989-2002 Isuzu Rodeo or Honda Passport?

Some help

there is a screw located between the bumper and the vehicle you must use a long Phillips to get to it, most likely the plug is loose that is the problem I had.

How to remove a tail light

There are actually 3 screws you need to loosen on a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo. At least there are on the LSE model. One of them is located between the bumper the tail light, and as stated before you will need a long Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screw. The other two are located along the side of the taillight inside the little black things that look like air vents. Once you remove all of the screws, slide the taillight straight back. Try not to shake it out of place or a small black plastic rod will break. If the plastic rod does break it will not harm the vehicle or affect the operation of the taillight. Then remove the corresponding bulb by turning the bracket counter clockwise and pulling the bulb out. The correct bulb number for a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo LSE is 1157.

On the 1989-1997 models all is the same except you need to remove the screws from the backside of the unit to remove the lens and the bulbs are pushed in and turned counter clockwise to remove.
