LATE MODEL TAIL LIGHT

2004 Nissan Almera • 100,000 miles

I have 2005 nissan n16 and I want to replace a damaged lamp in right tail light. But I cant remove the tail light, after I remove the two bolts it still stuck when im pulling it out. Any idea to remove it? I saw a small round rectangular gray plastic gadget inside, is it have any connection to tail light?

I believe there are 3 bolts. Look around for the third.

No idea, can you post a picture?

Does the new one only have 2 mounts or 3?

That is a clip that is plugged in. You need to pry or pull at the taillight assy to dislodge it.

I finally did it yesterday. Yeah KHLow2008 you are right. I use a spanner to pull the light out. That Clip is little bit hard to remove

Yes, taking out is rather difficult as there is littl room for leverage.

Glad to know you have the problem fixed.
