You will most likely not find an interior access to the lights ,,, you must remove the screws on the outside and remove the casing to get to the bulbs ... Most yrs did not have any way of gaining access from the inside ... i'm not sure if the owners manual shows this feature but it would be great to have a shop manual or at the very least a Haynes or Chiltons manual for reference... Good LuckHow do you replace a tail light (brake) bulb on a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee?
Look for two more screws somewhere outside the vehicle. Also look for an access pannel just inside the back at the same level of the taillights. If there is one, you may be able to reach in and change the bulbs right there.How do you replace a tail light (brake) bulb on a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee?
After obtaining the correct light bulb-- an auto store or the dealership can tell you-- open the back hatch. On the inside back wall is where you will find access to the bulbs. I don't know if you take the interior wall off or a open a door, but try gently (It's easy to mark things up if you use a screwdriver to pry it off). You may even have to unscrew this. Make sure you put the burnt out bulb away from you in the garbage--don't want to accidentally reinstall that. Plug in the new one. And reseal the compartment. Then make sure you get behind the wheel and press on the brakes with the jeep running and a friend posted at the back to notify you if its the right light bulb you replaced--and not a night driving one..
