REPLACING A PASSENGER SIDE TAIL LIGHT

1996 Volvo 850

Electrical problem
1996 Volvo 850 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles

I am trying to repair the small stuff on my Volvo 850 to allow my daughter to drive it back to college in Chicago. I am not repairing the cosmetics until she graduates and needs to drive it to a job.

This past summer, a hit and run driver broke the lenses on the passenger-side tail light and I would like to repair it myself. We did the red tape but that lasted about two months. Can I get just the lenses? If not, I have found a used replacement assembly. I'm handy with a power driver and common power tools. Will this be possible to swap out or will I need special tools

Thanks! Patricia
