Thanks. I thought that might be the case, but didn't want to risk breaking anything if is wasn't. The assembly looks to be really stuck on. I guess the trick is to use a bit of lube and go slowly. The gasket is quite old.
If you want to remove the tail light lens to replace the bulbs, remove the screws from the lens like stated above. If you want to remove the tail light assembly, you have to do it from inside the rear quarter panel.
I took the passenger side tail light assembly out of my '90 Trooper by (carefully) popping the interior panel (you don't want to break the clips or the panel). Once the panel was out of the way, I could reach in with a socket wrench (w/ extender) and unbolt the assembly. I imaging the driver side works the same way, but the rear window washer resevoir may also be in the way and need to move out of the way first...
Thanks, I thought that something must be holding the assembly in place.
I am trying to get the assembly out to get at the lighting wires so that I can hook up a trailer connector. The first gen Troopers do not have a plug for this and I was told that the best place to make the connections was behind the assembly.
