My brake light on my Altima 2003 2.5s is located inside the car against the back window. Slide the casing around the light toward the window to pop it off. I know there's not a lot of room there, but it slides a 1/4 inch or so. Then lift the casing off, replace with matching bulb, and return casing.

How do I replace a rear turn signal bulb on a 2009 Nissan Altima?

first you need to remove the clip that holds the trunk liner, then you'll have to pop off two white electrical connectors on 8mm bolts. Remove them using 8mm ratchet socket adapters. Then you can lift and pry off the tail light assembly to get to the bulbs. Then do the reverse to put it all back together.

My daughter's 2003 Spyder needs the brake light bulb replaced. She is at college about 3 hours away and I cannot help describe what she needs to do to get the old one out and the new one in. Please help....

i dont own an eclipse but usually you can gain access to the brake lights through the trunk. with the trunk open there should be a carpeted cover behind the brake light. the cover usually pops open and you should be able to see the inside of the brake light from the trunk. find the brake bulb and it should just twist out. find the correct replacement from walmart or an auto parts store. the type of light is sometimes listed in the manual of the car if the store does not have a computer...
