I have a 87 Brougham and i am trying to replace a signal bulb in the left tail light. Do i take off the tail light cover and the lens or do i access them through the trunk. I have a helms manual for the car but it don't say how to access them any help?

Thank you.

gatta take off the cover.

Be careful not to over tighten any of the bolts/screws. They go into a little metal clip and if you over tighten them the metal clip can pop off and you'll have to take the whole thing apart again.

If you get on your back and reach into the back of the tail light housing, you should be able to get the bulbs out. On mine, all of the screws for the tail light lenses are stripped.
