How to replace brake light on Taurus Wagon?

Hello all. I'm new here. I have a question that seems rather silly, but for the life of me, I can't figure it out. Can anyone help!! I am trying to replace the bulbs in the brake light of my 96 Taurus Wagon, however, I can't seem to get the brake light housing to come out. There is one solitary nut that I can see, which I have removed, but it will not budge. If anyone has any advice, I would sure appreciate it. Thanks.

Re: How to replace brake light on Taurus Wagon?

Welcome to FF hiflite2. I've changed my mothers brake light in her 99 Taurus sedan. You have to open the trunk, well in your case the hatch, take the back cover off where the taillights come into the car. Use a common screw driver to pop off the pastic piece holding in the cover. Stick your hand in and turn the light socket so it can pop out. Hope that helps.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

Re: How to replace brake light on Taurus Wagon?

the sedan and wagon are not the same - the wagon has the brake lights in the body of the car (not the hatch). I am having the same problem on my sable (mercs version of the taurus). there is not a big enough hole to get TO the back of the light plug inside - and I can't figure out how to take off the outside lense thought I'd google it and see if I could find out how - only to find lots of people ASKING the question and no answers :(

I've never had to do this, but according to your owners manual, (for the wagons) it says to take it to a qualified service technician. Sounds like it must be a real PITA.
