    Default How to change a brake light bulb?

    How do get the lens out?? '07 DC. Is it the two smaller torx heads that are revealed when you open the tail gate? OR do you have to twist your arm like a pretzle from underneath the rear bumper?
    BTW I did do a search but came up with nothing helpful. . . . .
    My CPA tells me that crime really does pay . . . . . . Skid

    Just installed tail light guards on my Crewmax. Like most trucks, it's those two torx head screws. Take em out, then pull each lense gently (I believe sideways away from the body.) Not too hard and not all the way off yet cause the bulbs and wiring harnesses are still attached. Just enough to get the lenses off the brackets.

    Once it comes off, reach in and twist each of the three bulb sockets and they'll pop out of the holes so you can remove the lense comletely. Each bulb socket is the right size for only one hole so you can't mix them up.
    09 Crewmax 4x4 5.7.
    Stampede bug deflector/ventvisors
    Matching front tint.
    Stereo by Pioneer/Hertz/Eclipse/Alpine.

    A left and right tail light lense, a front and rear door skin, and one passenger side paint job later, she finally says 'it's just too big, I don't think I like driving it anymore.'
