Removing and replacing rear tail light on 2015 Berk
 
My 2015 Berk has a complicated connection for the wires. It is not the standard push and twist connector that I've seen. But, it seems to be pressed together. I'm just not sure where to apply force to undo it.

Any advice would be appreciated.

On mine there is a series of screws around the outside- then about a 8-10 inch long piece screwed to the back. Removing the screws from that exposed the 4 bulbs.


The 8-10 in long bulb holder is out of a dodge ram.

Thanks Dave. My tail lights are two units 3 bulbs each, for a total of 6 bulbs: 4 signals and two backup. So, we might be talking about a different tail light.

I wonder if you have an older unit.

I should have sent pictures in the original post, so here are 3 pictures. The first is the unit from outside, where it appears to consist of two truck tail light assemblies on each side. The second shows the inside and the third shows a closeup of the connector that I wanted to disconnect.

The second picture shows 4 Philips screws plus 4 hex studs, that look like they are intended to plug into something. I'm suspecting that I'm supposed to undo all these screws and studs, and then find the long panel inside coming out. I assume that it comes off and then I can access the bulbs.

So far, I don't have bulbs burnt out, but I did have the assembly off and became curious about what to do when one burns out.

cheers, Gordon

yes same as mine- but I forgot a step
Remove the 2 screws on the side and the two nuts on the back.


That will expose the screws that hold the 1x8in plastic piece with 2 more screws that hole the bulbs.

Dave,
Thanks very much. I'll store that information away for the future.

Thanks for posting question Gordon! I just tried to replace a bulb last weekend and ran into the same problem!
