Re: How do I change the back brake light of a Hyundai...
If it is the light in the rear window, there are two plastic caps on either side on the base of the light. Pop off the cap and remove the screws inside. That should allow you to get to the bulb. I went to autozone for the bulb w/o removing it and they gave me the wrong one. If you have the bulb removed, you're better off, if not, the people at advanced got me the correct one without any issues. If it's the brake lights on the back of the trunk, you access those from inside the trunk. On either side, there are thumbscrews (sometimes under the fabric lining flaps). Once you remove the bulb carrier, you'll know which one is out. It usually lines up with the red cover but if you can borrow someone's time, have them look in your trunk at the bulbs as you test your parking lights to see which one lights and which one doesn't. Hope this helps.

brake lights and blinkers use the sale filament in the bulb the running light is the other (in a dual filament bulb) you may have a poor connection or a break inside the bulb base. test with a known good bulb. the next place to look is the connector on the light switch and the joint where the running lights split off.
Hi joe its going to be that socket that has poor contact. It will more than likley need a the socket but try this first. unhook the battery, just so you dont blow the fuse. then remove the bulb look in the socket theres going to be 2 copper looking metal contacts bend them up alittle. this will take away the poor contact if thay are not cracked.If they are cracked you will have to get a socket.
open your trunk and remove the carpet from behind the brake lights, you should be able to access the brake light from there. If not just remove those screws/bolts and the brake light assembly will pop right out.
