If it fell out replace it. It's hard to describe but it will twist counter clockwise to remove and clock wise to install. If you garb the back part that has the tangs on the old one with a plier you might be able to twist it back into the install position. You will then insert it into the square hole and twist. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

I was able to replace a broken one with another piece of straight metal - just a joist hanger that I banged into shape and drilled. Has been working for a year!

SOURCE: How do I replace the bulb in the high mount stop light?

Please look at the bottom of your tail lights there is 1 flat head screw there. Take it out and you can slide tail light out. You will find the back of the bulb there. Be care when returning the assembly back in place as it slide up and then you just replace the screw.

SOURCE: Engine motor mounts on 2001 PT Cruiser

Place a block of wood under the engine sump to prevent damage when you jack up the engine to take the tension off the mount. Make sure you do not jack the engine up too much as you might damage the exhaust,cooling hoses etc.

SOURCE: replace the engine motor mounts and the transmission mount. Would like to know how to do it. Thanks.

Check the frame mounts too. You will have to loosen the bolts and jack the motor up with a jack and a woodblock.

I have a 2011 nissian altima and when i push on break the break light goes off but when i let off break light comes on what does it mean?

check your brake light switch on the brake pedal, more than likely thats where the problem is, when pedal is push down, the plunger on the switch is released to turn lights on, when you let up off the pedal the plunger gets push in by the pedal to wich its mounted, which inturn shuts the lights off. do you see how its suppost to work ? thats the only switch for your brakes , soooo yours is backwards correct ? must need re-mounted in its proper location........... OK

Brake lights not working. Niether stop lamps or overhead brake light bar work. All other rear lights work. Fuses for both lights are OK.

The most common problem for this fix is a New Replacment Brake Light Switch. It is located and mounted to the brake pedal assembly.

My break lights won't go off. Where is the stop light switch located? I'd like to disconnect it until I can get a replacement.

The switch is located under the dash on the driver side mounted to or behind the brake pedal.I would check to see if it can be adjusted before disabling it.

My brake lights don't work. I've changed the bulbs & checked the fuse. any ideas?

You could check the brakelight switch located on the brake pedal linkage. Sometimes they move out of adjustment, sometimes they fail. The ones I've seen are usually plastic and the threads strip off so the jamb nut won't hold the switch in place correctly. It should be round (or at least the part with the mounting nut should be round) with a plug with 2 or 3 wires going into the back and located so that the brake pedal lever moves away from the switch when you push on the pedal. If you deem that it needs to be replaced the switch should be available at most auto parts stores.

I need the exact location of the break light switch on a 92 labaron 2.5

The brake light switch is mounted to the brake pedal bracket assembly, under the instrument panel. The stop lamp switch attached to the mounting bracket.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Unplug the two brake switch wiring harness connectors.
  3. Remove the wiring harness for the switch from the clip on the brake pedal bracket assembly. Remove the nut and washer from the switch and bracket assembly stud and remove the switch and bracket assembly. To install:
  1. Position the switch and bracket assembly to the brake pedal bracket assembly, then install the nut and lockwasher. Tighten the retaining nut for the bracket until finger-tight (loose enough to allow movement of the bracket).
  2. Attach the electrical wiring harness connectors and route the wire through the retainer clip.
  3. Push the switch forward (toward the front of the vehicle) as far as it will go (this will cause the brake pedal to move forward slightly).
  4. Gently pull backward (toward the rear of the vehicle) on the brake pedal until the pedal lever rests against the its stop. This will ratchet the switch back to its properly adjusted position.
  5. Tighten the switch and bracket assembly mounting bracket nut securely.

My break lights wont turn off

It sounds like either the brake light switchis out of adjustment or the awitch has failed and is stuck on. The switch is located under the dash near the top of the brahe pedal arm. To replace, diisconnect the plug that connects the wiring to the switch., loosen locknut and unscrew the switch from the mounting bracket. Installation is the reverse procedure. Adjust by screwing switch until operating plunger is fully depressed without moving pedal arm and then tightening lock nut. Chec k that lights operate when pedal depressed and extinguish when pedal released.

My brake lights stay on after turing off my 2004 Buick Rendezvous

The brake light switch is located under the dash - if you'll look at the brake pedal and follow it up until you see a plastic cylinder with an electrical connection - that should be the brake light switch - they are often difficult to remove (they are in a bad place and hard to get to - sometimes they are threaded as well - sometimes use a clip to hold them in) They have a push-button that contacts the pedal arm - When the brakes are off, the switch is "electrically open" and has no internal connection (no brake lights) when you push the brakes Switch is now "electrically closed", the switch button releases and the switch makes a connection internally to activate the lights - yours has either lost it's mounting and no longer contacts the pedal arm, keeping brake lights on - or has an internal short - keeping them on even when the switch is activated .....This often means that your brake lights do not work correctly (or rather stay lit at all times while you are driving) thus, a definite safety hazard - remove the wiring pigtail, remove and replace the switch and plug the wiring back in - have someone check that they are now working correctly - or use a mirror - (sometimes, on some vehicles there is a rubber plug that fits into the brake lever where it contacts the switch - this plug can fall out or break apart and cause the same problem, so when you get up under the dash to look for it, ensure the parts are there, and I usually activate the pedal with my hand and visually check the mechanicals to ensure proper operation and part presence....) The switch can also be mounted directly to the arm and moves with the pedal - or mounted on the car and is depressed by the pedal - I've seen it done several different ways so use your common sense and you'll be just fine...
