I saw another thread on here talking about the dim tail lights for the L and LE trims. Does anyone know if the 2023s have the tail lights extending onto the liftgate or will this still be a concern with the new year’s model?

Thanks for responding. I had already put a deposit down on an LE when I discovered this. I think I will research some things to put on the back to make myself more visible during my 30-45 day wait.
maybe even just swapping the tail lamp bulbs to LED would be beneficial! I believe they are just a regular bulb.

I swapped the license plate bulbs to bright white LED and that makes a HUGE difference too! I can be seen now!
I’ve tried to remove the tail assembly with no success…after removing the only 2 screws, I couldn’t remove the tail assembly, it is so stuck in there thatI was afraid I was going to damage it so I gave up.

What is the reason for wanting to remove that part? I’m asking because I have no knowledge about how to do these things and my mechanic nephew is going to help me with doing some of these upgrades.

Hi there I managed to remove the tail light on the back door and side. The side light slide out after you remove the two bolt hold them in place. On the gate there are three bolts holding it in place, these are on tight so a little is needed. Hope that helps .

The side light slide out after removing the two bolts? I did remove those two bolts and couldn’t get it out. I was afraid I was going to damage it.
Mine didn’t slide out, they seemed to be clipped to something inside.
