This small trim piece popped off. Looks like tab broke. I’m just going to velcro it back but was curious to what was under it. (I.e. the little white nob)

I have a 2018 JLU Sport if that makes a difference.

Driver Side one is ok:

Passenger side popped off:

The part in question and what does it cover?

@suzookus


The Left cover is, part # 6QJ14TX7AA and the Right cover, is part #, 6QJ13TX7AA dealer will sell to you for about $2.50+- each. Same covers fit either a 2018 or 2019.. any model JL/JLU.

That while plastic bolt you see under the each cover, is the bolt you remove in order to release the tail lamp.

CAREFUL, when working with that white plastic bolt, because if you over tighten it, it will break.

So if that white plastic bolt was metal, the light might put up a fight when someone tries to steal them?
@mlebofsky

No far from the truth, unfortunately.

From forum posts, the nitwits stealing the JL tail lamps are prying on the tail lamp from the outside...

When they pry it tweaks the tail lamp a bit and the actual inner plastic section of the tail lamp breaks off and the tail lamp is let loose..

The white bolt/screw does not break and is actually left in place doing it's job.

So, titanium screw/bolt even would not prevent theft of the tail lamp if some nitwit wants it.

Part pointed to with pink arrow breaks off and then lamp is freed:.

I think it is the big black plastic "cone" on the back of the tail light assembly that reaches up to the white bolt that is the point of failure - it just breaks near the white bolt when enough force is applied.

Correct..

You can see the cone in the pic I posted. Pink arrow points to the cone affair that the white plastic bolt/screw screws into.

The cone itself, is what is broken free from the main tail lamp housing.

After tail lamp is broken free, the cone is left firmly attached to the JL still.... attached by the white plastic bolt/screw.

I dunno but I looked at my taillamps and there's a metal insert kinda like a helicoil in there so I think there's a market for a stainless bolt -- I'd buy 'em. It'd have to be done on a machining center to be affordable (I could make them manually....just give me a week LOL)

This was done on the Dmax fuel filter housing bleeder screws that were plastic from the factory and stripped if there was a light breeze....one of the best quick upgrades I ever did

Now that we are in the area of the rear trim, does any one have the part number for the round snap retainers that hold the trim to the body of the jeep??

Thanks

I stripped the head on mine today and can't get it out now. Did you actually strip yours and if you did, how did you get it out? I tried a socket but don't seem to have the correct size.
