tail light replacement 2008 F-150

Hello everyone. I'm over from the 48-60 group. I have a 2008 F-150 and I have to change my tail light. How do you get the housing out. I removed 2 screws, but it feels like there is something else holding it tight. Peeked under the bed liner, but it does not appear to help in any way

Thanks, JimG 1098

Never mind. Read the book, it explained proper procedure. Got the bulb out and am going to get a replacement.

Remove the 2 screws on the side of the assembly, drop the tailgate to see. Then pull the light assembly out, there will be a bit of resistance but that is normal.

yeah I just changed one of mine for the 2nd time since I have owned my truck. This time there was a lot of resistance. I really had to pull hard. But yeah, remove the two screws and that is all that holds it.

Does this generation use standard base bulbs, or do they use the flat plastic base bulbs like the mid 90's generation? thanks
