How do i change the left rear brake light bulb

It appears not to have an easy access to the bulbs-3 to 5 nuts to remove. There has to be a simpler way to change the bulbs. Right?

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. (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.

Best of luck.

Replacing rear brake light


From inside the trunk, behind the carpet that covers the back of the taillight. You will need to remove the retaining nuts.

The tail light assembly is attached to the Trunk Lid itself. You must use a deep socket and remove 7 nuts.. 3 from each side and one in the center. The entire back end assembly will come free. All bulbs are the same P161-1a (P161 1 AMP) they are the size of your small finger nail and not easy to find. Try to buy 2-3 before you start the job. I thought I had 1 bulb burned out, but it ended up being 3. Give the bulb sockets an 1/8 turn clockwise to release it, then pull the bulb straight out. Reverse the order for assembly. They look like little flash bulbs from the old 120 flim cameras.

Hope helped (remember comment and rated this).

Replace rear brake light bulb 1998 lincoln continental


pop the trunk and right behind where the lights are pull the carpet down and their will be of the following depending on the trim.

You will either see the light sockets themselves that you can twist and pull to change the bulb, or you will see the plastic nuts/screws that you can remove to remove the entire assembly in order to access the bulbs.

If it's your 3rd brake light, the screws to access the housing are located in the upper part of the trunk

I just had to do this, and 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.

Just reverse these directions to reassemble the housing.
