Question Taillight Assembly & Brakelight bulb replacement

I had to replace a cracked tail light. It took me longer to post this than the actual procedure. It takes a few minutes to complete.
Open the tail gate and locate the two pins on the light.

Remove and set aside, you will reuse them.

The light should be gently pulled toward the rear of the Jeep.(You may need to insert a flat driver on the side of the jeep and pry.)

Do not pull the light completely away from the jeep. Look for a blue wire clip at the bottom of the tail light and remove. Disconnect the wiring harness.

Reverse procedure for reinstall.
