I need to replace the passenger side rear light housing but I can't detach the old one....Grrrr!! I've located the connection but I can't get it apart. Is there a trick or a special tool required to do this? Thanks!!

Drop the tail gate down and remove the two bolts holding the tail light assembly. You'll need to "pop" the tail light out. Give it a little nudge and they'll come right out.

try using some needle nose pliers to pinch the connector and pull it off. needle nose vise grips works very good.

Thanks!! It's a complicated connector but I'll try the needle nose plier trick tonight. It's a tough angle to get at it and I'm afraid I may screw things up. Wish me luck!
