SOURCE: How do I change the back brake light of a Hyundai Elantra?

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.

SOURCE: bulbs keep burning out

When you replace headlights in today's cars, DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS OF THE BULB!. Handle the bulb only with the packing material the bulb ships in, or with a clean dry cloth.The oils in your skin will cause premature failure of the bulb.

Also, check the sockets (car side) carefully to make sure they are not burned.

SOURCE: Third Brake light in Hyundai Sonata

you need a philips screwdriver and a flashlight, and a telescoping magnet is recommended.

the best way to do this would be to empty your trunk, and lay in the trunk on your back with your legs hanging out and your flashlight pointed up at your work.
inside the trunk directly under the stoplamp you should see a connector, disconnect that and you should see a philips screw. remove the screw.
this part is a little tricky, shine the light up and to the left so that you can see the fastener that holds the bulb into the lamp. take your screwdriver, and place the tip on the flat part that sticks off of the bulb socket and press, so that you can turn it. once the socket is released, remove the bulb socket & bulb with its wire completely.
next, about 2-3 inches to the left of the rectangle where you removed the bulb & socket you should see a hole that is covered with a black foam. remove the foam from the hole, look straight up and you will see another philips screw. remove it, i recommend using a magnet to pull it from its hole after you've loosened it almost all the way, but whatever you do, do NOT do NOT drop that screw. it is almost impossible to retrieve and if you dont, it will rattle.
once you have both screws removed, get out of the trunk and go into the backseat and lift the 3rd brakelamp assembly off of the package tray; it may need a little negotiation, but be patient, it will come out.
once you have the stoplamp assembly out of the car, take the bulb socket, it should have a long flat tip at the bottom. take a pair of dikes and cut that tip completely off. replace the bulb, and install the bulb & socket into the lamp assembly, and re-install the lamp from inside the car, slowly and carefully slding it back into place. (hint, the more of the flat tip that you cut off, the easier it will slide into place).

once the lamp is back in place, hook up the connector, and re-install the screws, and you're done.

replace the bulb...??? This requires you remove the rear package deck (to access the bulb & socket). to do this, remove the seat bottom (two bolts hold the rear seat bottom to the chassis, then remove the bolts which hold the shoulder cushions (LH & RH - 12mm bolts) then remove the cosmetic molding around the trunk access (7 to 8 screws) then remove the "C" pillar covers (SRS curtain airbag LH & RH) to access the rear deck package & access the third brake lamp bulb. replace it, then reassemble.

Are dash lights supposed to go out when the brake is pressed?


I don't have specalist knowledge of your particular make/model but i would say NOT .a lot of modern cars require specific wattages in the rear/brake lights so it's worth looking in your manual for the correct values and checking them. ive seen various odd behavour on a few cars because of this even a vauxhaul sri import which cut the engine everytime the brake pedal was pressed (it had a stop/tail bulb fitted when it should've beed just a single filament stop light bulb) so dash lights going out could well be somthing like that

Is the brake light in the rear window on it's own fuse?? if not, why could it be out? It's not the bulb itself, i tried to change it, but it still won't light


No, the third (3rd) brake light is on the same circuit as the other brake lights. So, knowing this, there must be some other cause.

1. New bulb is also bad
2. Bulb socket is damaged
3. Power/ground at the bulb is not present (in which case, locate the fault).
4. If all else fails, Take the vehicle in to an authorized Hyundai Service Department and have it properly diagnosed -- this way you'll know EXACTLY where/what the problem is/was and the parts/labor required to fix it.

How to replace the third brake light (hatch) on a 2005 hyundai accent. I took off the 4 screw on the the plastic cover and it still won't come off. Tried taking off cove of back hatch but don't want to...


Above the third brake light is a small panel, remove this panel using small screwdriver.
1. You'll see four (4) bolts, remove the three bolts that are painted black, do not remove the center bolt holding the plastic molding, this is for the door molding, and has nothing to do with the light.
2. Once those three bolts are out, you'll see two more small screws, remove them and you'll have access to the third brake light bulb.

Be careful when pulling out the bulb, my bulb broke, and I'm still trying to get pieces out! - Good luck.

Need to replace both brake lights


Hi, The 2007 Hyundai Accent is under a recall for the brake light switch since it has a tendency to fail. The brake light switch is high up on the brake pedal and it has a plunger on it. The plunger releases when you step on the brake pedal and retracts when you release the pedal. Recall Information can be found at: http://www.internetautoguide.com/10-12-2007-33-267/2007-hyundai-accent-recalls.html

Please remember to rate this solution. Thanks and Good Luck!

High Level Brake bulb replacement


If memory serves, there are two screws holding this light assy to the rear package deck. They are covered (LH and RH side of this assy). remove the covers and using a phillips screwdriver, remove the screws and lift the assy up and away from the rear glass. you now have access to the bulb and socket.

How do you replace the third brake light bulb on a 2004 Hyundai Accent 2dr hatchback?


It's not impossible people! You will however need more than just a screwdriver.
This is for a 2004 Hyundai Accent 3 door (i.e. Hatchback)
Open the rear door to get to the stop light assembly. Directly under (or above now that the door is open and it is upside down) the light case is a small rectangular panel that you can snap out using a flathead screwdriver.
Once removed you should see 4 hex bolts. Remove these (a ratchet is the easiest way to go) and you should be able to pull the light case free of its mount. NOTE: You will notice two pegs or tabs helping to keep the case in place, a bit a wiggling may be needed to free them.
Once it is hanging free, you will need to remove the 6 screws on the bottom holding the case together. With these removed the back should come off and you can get to the bulb.
The replacement bulb I purchased was a Sylvania Long Life number 921. Pull the old bulb out (it may need some force/wiggling but be careful not to break it), and slide the new bulb into place. I would recommend checking that the new bulb is functioning at this point, while everything is still disassembled.
If everything is working... then replace the bottom cover, replace the 6 screws, slide the whole case back into place, replace the 4 bolts, and finally snap the panel cover back into place.
This whole process should take no longer than 20 minutes.
Hope this helps... Cheers!
