    Or...
    Could someone let me know how I can remove my trunk panel to access the tail lights? Is it as simple as removing the screws from the handle and pull strap and prying the panel off?
    Please advise...thanks

    After you remove the two screws in the back panel, the have to pull the assembly. The best way for me to describe it is, you have to move to the side of the truck and pull the assemble towards you. You cannot pull it straight back. There are two pins that allow the light cover to be secured against the back of the truck. One pin is towards the top, the other pin is towards the bottom. I used a screwdriver to GENTLY help me pop the pin inserts out.
    Twist out the bulb assembly.

    Pull out the bulb

    Insert the new bulb

    Twist back in the bulb assembly

    Place the pins over the pin holes in the light cover mold on the side of the truck

    Push in gently

    replace screws and you are done.

    Hi guy's, wish I could blame my wife but unfortunately it was my own bone-headed move that damaged the light on the right side of my 2004 Sienna lift gate. Could someone forward me the PDF file mentioned above. PM me and I'll send you my e-mail address.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    i uploaded some files to the link below. one is a blow out view of the rear door and the other is a bit more detailed. basically you need to remove the panel from the inside then you can access the light housing.

    This is the worst forum I have ever been in before. It's almost dead.

    If you or new members still are looking for the info, Just so you know, get out of this thread, back to the sienna forum thread list, click on the "paper clip" image right next to this thread, you would see the two pictures of the tail light and you should know how to go from there.

    All connections on Toyotas are pretty much the same. On one side should be a little push down lock tab. Push it down and pull apart.
