Replace tail light lens cover

I've got a small crack in the side of my passenger side tail light lens. Is this easily accessed/replaceable through trunk access by pulling back on the trunk fabric cover? Estimate as to time needed from those who have replaced theirs? 08 Si sedan is the vehicle type. Thanks!

Re: Replace tail light lens cover

Unfortunately it looks like I can answer my own question. I found a DIY at a sister site and you have to loosen/remove bumper to access lower bolt holding in assembly. Best accessed with bumper cover removed/pulled away. Darn!

Re: Replace tail light lens cover

yeah sedans unfortunately the bumper should come off. you can try and reach behind the bumper and see if its possible for you to undo the single bolt of the taillight. sometimes you can with small arms and tools.

Re: Replace tail light lens cover

Replaced it this past Sunday with the assistance of my brother. Removed right rear tire, mud flap, and then associated screws. Bumper cover is flexible enough to pull away from corner without having to remove the left side. Used multiple rachet extensions to reach the problem screw on the bottom of the housing. Only hiccup was that apparently a bulb was burnt out so I had to go get one. Other than that, easy.

Can I ask you where you found the tail light lens cover? I need one as well and all I can find are complete assemblies! Thanks.

Re: Replace tail light lens cover

they are only sold as complete units. the cover is welded to the rear housing.
