Determine which taillight needs replacing. Open your CR-V
rear hatch. Look inside the vehicle directly behind where the taillight is located on the outside.
Look for two flat, black discs about the same diameter as a dime. Use a screwdriver or pliers to pry off the discs.
Remove both parts of the disc mechanism, the grommet and the plug. Push the plug backwards (toward the outside of the Dodge Caravan) through the grommet.
Hold on to the lens assembly as you remove the second grommet. The CR-V
lens assembly can fall off and break.
Note the wiring inside that connects to a plug. Near the wiring, you should see two round covers with tabs on either side. These are bulb housings and they contain the bulbs.
Press inward on the tabs and pull to remove the covers. Pull out the old bulb and push in a new one. Squeeze inward on the tabs again to replace the covers on the bulb housing. You should hear a snap if the covers are properly replaced.
Check the taillight to make sure it works properly with the new bulb in place. Push the wiring back in and replace the lens assembly.
