    9-5 ARC Wagon tail light

    Hi, I am having a hard time finding how to access the tail lights in my wagon. I've looked at many posts and youtube, but no luck. As at your house, it is very cold here and I don't want to break any plastic. It is the bulb that is not in the 5th door. Thanks, Brrrrr

Size:  20.9 KB So here is what I have. The first picture has two plastic slots, they turn at an odd angle, then what? The 2nd and 3rd picture has a compartment and the compartment feels pretty solid, as if I shouldn't force it to do something I will regret. Experience is good, especially when I can learn from somebody else. Thanks

    That plastic cover in your first picture should come off easily. From the owners manual:

    Rear lights clusters, 9-5 SportWagon

    1 Open the tailgate.
    2 Remove the cover by turning the two catches counterclockwise one quarter turn.
    3 Remove the two screws securing the light cluster to the body.

    Thanks Frank. It worked, and was quick to do. It was just a dirty contact, a little cleaning and it lights up. Feels weird asking for help with a light bulb.
