2001 Adventurer fix tail light housing

Hey Guys:

Long story short, the generator cover came off when I was going down the road from the house and pushed the drivers side tail light housing out a little. Everything works, but it would be nice to put it back into place (aesthetics). I have tried to loosen the bar that goes across the back to see if I could move that over a bit and push the housing back.

Want to get the knowledge of the collective to see if there is anything else I can do before I go to a body shop.

(Please excuse me if the images don't look right.)

Thanks
Alex

I can tell you from experience the housing itself can be removed. First remove the tail light lenses by popping them off. There's a small clip on the end of the bodies that can be depressed using a small flat blade screw driver.

Once the lenses are off you can remove the tail light bodies from the panel. They are attached by phillips head screws. Once the lights are free from the panel you can pull the bodies from the panel to expose the wire splices. Find the wire splices, mark and cut them. You can purchase new splices at almost any auto parts stores.

You should see several phillips head screws securing the tail light panel to the rear of the motorhome. Remove the screws and the panel should come free.

You can now inspect the mounting surface to see if it can be repositioned or will need repair. If I recall correctly the mounting surface on our 2001 Adventurer was plywood under a fiberglass panel.

It took me less than 15 minutes to remove the panel, and another 15-20 minutes to replace it, including splicing the wires and reinstalling the tail lights
