I spend most my time here reading and learning. Tonight I need a little
advice. I am trying to remove the rear tail light (driver's side- if there
is a difference) from my truck to replace the turn signal bulb. The owners
manual states that I should push the red clip and pull the wiring connector
from the lens....not on my truck. Is there a better manual or web site that
I could go to for more information??? Thanks in advance

Hey, one question, how do I "break" the wiring connector from the unit??? I
can not seem to break that joint and I do not understand what "Push the red
tab" means... some days I miss the old cars/trucks with simpler things...
