Rear Taillights

We just bought a 2006 National Tradewinds 40c, and have a brakelight out. I have a sneaking suspicion I know my answer but does anyone know an easy way to remove the rear taillight assembly. I can lay on my back and look up into that tall tube and see four bolts to remove the assembly. The only way I can think of is to cut into the wall from inside the coach. The headlight assembly ended up in part coming from an 05 Buick Century. Who would have thunk it.

Easy to think that! these rv makers us available auto parts. My tail lights are Ford van tail lights, the ignition switch the same found in a 1986 Chevy pickup. It saves costs. It reminds me of that song Johnny Cash sang about the car he made by taking parts out of the factory. Forgot the name of that song.

Thanks for the help. The assembly just popped out with a little effort and a lot of breath holding hoping nothing broke. The rear assembly popped out and bulb change fixed the issue. I greased the rubber seals so hopefully next time they come out easier.

Yea, all my lights are working now, front and back.
