Rear light cluster removal

#1 by Robs188 , Sun Jan 13, 2019 11:27 am

Hi all

2014 Barbarian - trying to remove the rear light cluste to change a bulb, took the two screws out accessible when the tailgate is opened, but no movement on the lamp. Are there any more fastenings behind the tub liner? - hope not as that looks like the canopy needs removing too

TIA

2 and pull, there are clips with a small amount of resistance to pull out. I had mine out last weekend to uprate the reverse lights, there was a small tug required (don't even think about it Ronnie!). There is one more guide retainer at the vehicle front of the side part, but that's just for not letting the light wobble.

I gave mine a thump or two just to disturb the 'seal' as mine had probably never been removed before when I removed mine
still tempted to get clear or smoked units for mine, only thing stopping me is, being a white truck the rear lights are the only color on there so might be a bit odd without any color at all

Look at the 2 gold tips in the middle

There's always monochromatic look - I have 2 options open to me having a whitey and not having animal skillz. Black and white. so a dark smoke tinted rear cluster would probably work for you @krutly
