yes

there are two on each side in the back, turn the hazards on and look at them and you'll see right away which one it is.

it could be the front too, but it's more likely the back one.

thanks gents....

fronts were no problem(of course I didn't have a 194/HEight it won't let me write H 8)....

but the back, I couldn't get the 'lens' off the car. The manual says hit the lamp assy an pull it off....I would just break the whole thing .

Any Help getting the rear lens cover off? ( I assume that you cannot go in from the rear like a normal car!!or like the front).

TIA.

once you get the two screws off, the assembly pulls off. there are two clips that hold it on, they are somewhat hard to get off.

I just couldn't pull the lamp assy off.

Should I pull from the outside of the car? Push the clips inside. It just feels like I am going to break the thing off.

I assume those little clips are holding it in; I just can;t pop them!

Help. TIA.

when you say 'the black part', do you mean the edges of the lamp assy on the outside?

Should I dig my fingernails in there? There's not much to grab onto.
It won't break?

Thanks again pextor.

EDIT: in my youth I broke everything I touched and am still feeling the psychological effects!!!!

You see the clip in the red circle?



You have to slide the light toward the rear of the car or you will break that. More Post Tramatic Stress! Just pull toward the rear of the car.

I see.................

take out the screws...

push the assy, from the narrow/fr TOWARD the rear to unsnap the clip, sliding it so to speak...

then pop it away from the body at 90 degrees, from the license plate side.

Am i getting close?

Sorry Pexor but I saw a need to use it. I'll PayPal you a US Dollar toward washing it. :D
Once it slides off of that clip you are smooth sailing. You can tilt it to the left, tilt it the right, do the hokey pokey and dance all thru the night....

Ehhhhhh Yeah! :oops:
Anyway, that should get it apart.

I am planning on replacing all 3 bulbs- the 2 reg bulbs and the H-eight.

Should I replace them 1 at a time to find the bad one or just replace all three?

Thanks again.

You can probably look at the filament in the bulb and see which bulb it is burnt in two in, then keep the other bulbs for extras.

have someone hit the brake pedal while you stand behind the car, you'll see which one is out that way.
