Question about 2002 Toyota Camry Solara

1 Answer

Brake light bulb wont fit

Have a 2005 solara and when I clip the new brake light bulb in to the harness and try to insert into rear of the lens (thru the trunk) it seems like the bulb is too long and keeps hitting something (inside of lens)so I cant turn the plug to lock it in. I have checked the manual and pep boys twice, but they keep telling me I have the correct bulb. The bulb seems too long and keeps hitting the side of the lens and this will not allow me to turn and lock the plug. Helpl!! Thanks

Check it against the one you took out or the one from the other side and see if there are any differences. there were differences in the year 2005 and 2006 that could be enough to have you trying to install the wrong bulb. take the old one with you if you have it and show them what you need or take the other one out and compare them

Can I just replace the third brake light bulb only ..just the bulb.on a 2005 Chevy Malibu LS.or do I have to replace the hole brake light itself..


from inside the trunk looking up at the light First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits. (The screws are permanently attached to the lens housing so will not drop into obscurity when the nuts are removed). After removing the nuts, GENTLY work the lens housing away from the car. You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.

You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.

Just reverse these directions to reassemble the housing.

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6


hello,
  • Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.

  • Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    1. To remove the lens and gain access to the bulbs You first need to release the lens holder from inside the trunk by completely unscrewing the large plastic wing nut that is under a round plastic panel that's located almost directly behind the rear brake light lens.
    2. To gain access to the plastic wing nut remove the round panel by gently prying it off.
    3. After this is done You release the lens by using something flat like a dinner table knife to pry and release the clip that holds the lens in place.

    How do you change rear windshield brake light bulb in 1988 olds 88?


    Hello there,

    First of all, it isn't all that easy or quick. First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits.

You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.

    You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.

    Best of luck.
