Hi sue from the boot side behind the carpet  

Posted on Jan 10, 2009

  • michjoanne Nov 08, 2010

    I'm struggling with this too, removed the carpet (by flicking off two thin clips) but hard to get a proper look inside to locate bulb due to the angle. I can feel a tight monkey nut, do i attempt to unscrew this? Thanks.

How to replace, step by step, the rear brake light bulb on hyundai atos 1999?


How Do You Change Tail Light Bulb
Remove the wiring harness from the tail light lens assembly. Disconnect tail light bulb from the wiring harness socket. Reconnect the wiring harness to the tail light lens assembly. To confirm proper installation of the new tail light bulb, place the key in the on position.
IT IS VERY SIMPLE OR GO TO AUTOZONE AND HAVE THEM CHANGE IT OUT FOR YOU AND WATCH THEM ONCE. GOOD LUCK.

Short on high brake wire


Open and inspect each socket.

There are 2 conductor and single conductor bulbs / socket.

A single conductor bulb in a 2 conductor socket will generate this error code.

Hi , I have Saab 95 Showing reverse light failure. Could you pls guide how to change the bulbs. Thanks


If wagon, I think this is in the back door. Remove little doors by turning the screws 1/2 turn. These can be tight. Use small flat head to get the doors off. Remove and replace light.
