How to Replace the Rear Signal Lights in a Toyota Tundra
Whether you use your Toyota Tundra for work or recreation, keeping its rear signal lights functioning is extremely important. When one burns out, order a new replacement bulb and repair the light yourself. The job only takes a few minutes to finish, and it saves you the time and hassle of going to a repair shop.

Remove the keys from the ignition and engage the emergency brake for safety. Also, make sure the headlamp control is in the "OFF" position.
Walk around to the back of your Tundra and open the tailgate.
Undo the two security bolts holding the taillight assembly to the truck.
Pull the assembly rearward from the truck until it's free from its socket.
Locate the turn signal bulb socket. Turn it counterclockwise to detach it from the taillight assembly.
Pull the old bulb straight out of the socket and replace it with the new bulb. Then, push the bulb socket into the taillight assembly and turn it clockwise to secure its position.
Test the turn signal to make sure it works before bolting the assembly back into place and closing the tailgate.
