Default replacing tail light in cart

The right rear tail light on my 2006 yamaha does not work (no brake light, tail light, or signal). It is the rectangular type and not the tear drop shape. There doesn't appear to be a way to access the assembly. I've been told that the whole tail light assembly can just be pulled out along with the rubber grommet that surrounds it, but it doesn't seem to move very easily. Has anyone done this? Thanks.

I would be willing to give you a hand with this repair, send me a PM with your contact info. I am in Pinellas, and would like to work on the GC here.

I have a 2016 Club Car, found out my tail light is stuck on by double sided tape!

You make an interesting point, with the older incandescent lamps, you would typically get half or partial illumination of the lamp depending on which function was activated. However with LEDs, they will not light for the sneak circuit that is created for a broken ground,so i suspect that on an LED based rear light, both lights would go out. I have not run across this yet, I may have to setup a test circuit to test this out.....

Default golf cart tail light

I was able to pull the rubber grommet and tail light assembly out from the chassis. It is a self contained assembly so you can't just replace a bulb. Bought one today from The Villages for $39 and got it put back together. Works fine.
