    Did not help but thanks for trying. I need specific help getting the faceplate off, ie, take off the screws, pull the trunk service access off, etc (which I tried - no luck).

It seems like you have multiple bulbs in your tail light assemblies. One or more of them is probably out -- you should be able to replace the bulb and resolve the issue. Every tail light assembly I have worked on, and their method of access, is different (and I am not familiar with the specific year and model of your car) so if you are unable to figure out how to access the lights, or how to figure out which light bulb is out you can ask at an auto parts store. If they are unable to help you, try a Haynes manual for your make and model -- it will have specific directions on how to change the bulbs out.

Tail break lights don't work. Window break light does work however. Bulbs have been replaced.


Check the brake light fuse. The high mounted brake light (third brake light) is on a different circuit than the brake lights. Hope this helps.

Remove the two screws from the holes in the tail light, then open the tail gate and there are two more on the inside of the bed, facing back towards the light assembly. Good luck dont forget to rate.

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.

Tail Light in 2004 Beetle


If you need to replace your tail light bulb, first remove the cover (it's round) from the inside of your trunk. There will be a black knob that needs to be unscrewed totally to release the back light casing. The screw is spring loaded so it is not going to fall. Be sure to hold on to the black knob. If you drop it you can retrieve it, but it's best to not drop it. Next pry the light casing from the fender with a knife or some other sturdy object. It is best to pry the light out from the line that runs from the light to the hatchback door. Don't be afraid, it takes a little force to pull out. After you pull out casing, you'll find two light switches. The one with one filament is for the turn signals and the one with two filaments is for the break light. Turn the light switch counter clockwise and remove. Switch out light bulb with new one (AutoZone has them for about $5.00 - package of 2). Replace every thing back as you uninstalled it. It is recommended that you replace all bulbs, that way it you don't have to do it again later when they go out. It'll save you the time and hassle of doing this again. Hope this will help anyone so print and save in your manual for later use.
