How to Replace a Brake Light Like a Pro

Once you have the right supplies, the process of changing your brake light goes quickly. But you’ll need to do a little research first. Be sure to have your owner’s manual handy and feel free to contact our service department if you need personal assistance.

  • Find Replacement Bulbs: Pick up replacement bulbs at any auto shop or dealership parts department, but be sure to double-check which bulbs you need. Look through your manual for the right bulb size and voltage.
  • Remove Tail Light Housing: Grab a Phillips-head screwdriver and remove the colored plastic lens that hides the brake light bulbs. Once you’ve removed the housing, unscrew the bad bulb.
  • Install New Bulb: Add a little dielectric grease to the end of your bulb to prevent corrosion and install it. Then reattach the housing and test it out!
