Has anyone replaced the tail light bulb on the rear hatch ? The bentley manual does not cover this. I can't fiqure out how to remove the cover. I just want to get in there and clean the streak marks that appear to be the result of condensation.

I have not taken mine apart yet, but I suspect the cover pulls off to expose the good stuff.

The car manual may actually show this, or call your dealer service desk to ask how.

Fyi, the cover does simply pull off. Although it sounds like you are breaking something when you do. There is a considerable amount of brittle plastic involved in the design. The manual's instructions are " remove cover, use screwdriver if nesscesary" not much help there. Also, the Bentley manual does not cover this either. The cover slides off at a parallel angle to the back windshield. Like I said it makes some painful cracking noises due to the fact there is a lot of cheap plastic in the design.

Thanks for the info! I just pulled mine off and it does sound exactly as promised.

Anyone notice the little sticker that had, what I am presuming was the install/build date of that particular part?

Mine read 14-Jan-98.

One of the clips for my high mounted tail light has broken. Does anyone know where to get replacement clips? I'm hoping this is an easy fix.

Out of curiosity, did you notice what plastic the cover was made of?

It should say somewhere, for example, "ABS/PC", for recycling.

Hello, does anyone know what the part number is for the clips that hold the brake light housing for the center (hatch) ?

Thank you.
