: How do you change the real tail light cover on a 1969 cadillac deville convertible

My passenger side tail light on my 69 deville convertible is broken.

I found a new set on eBay, but I can't figure out how to remove the old one and install the new one. Is that something a body shop would have to do?

Seems like I would almost have to remove the chrome around it?

You do have to remove the chrome bezel. IIRC there's a retaining clip at the top of the bezel that holds it in. When that's loosend and you pull the top of the bezel back, the bottom slides out from within the taillight assembly. I'd check my FSM for the full details, but I've lent it out.

Thanks! I have the Factory Service Manual, so hopefully with your post and the instructions there, I'll be able to pull it off :)
