Updated July 20, 2017

Replacing a tail light is something that many of us will have to do at some point in the life of our vehicle. Just about anyone can complete this task at home in only a few minutes. Not much in terms of tools or preparation is needed to complete this job. Once you are finished replacing the taillights, you can get back on the road safely.

Park the Alto in your driveway or garage.

Open the boot and remove the cover behind the burnt-out tail light by removing the securing screws with the screwdriver.

Pull the light fixture out of the housing toward the inside of the boot.

Pull out the burnt-out light bulb from the light fixture.

Insert the new light bulb into the light fixture and replace the lighting fixture to the light housing. Replace the securing screws with the screwdriver and close the boot.

Tip

Replace the light during the day or in a well-lit area.
