Go to the auto parts store and get some rust dissolving spray. Spray it in and wait a few hours. You may have to do it several times before the socket will break loose.

SOURCE: Replacing rear turn signal bulb in 2003 Mustang

remove the trim panel at the very rear of trunk, remove it and place it out of the way, remove tail light Assembly retaining nuts top and bottom, I think there are 6 per side, pull the tail light assembly straight back to access the bulbs for replacement.

Hi there
Its probably not a fuse issue as that would affect both sides.
when you replace a blub especially the brake lights it is possible to deform that nice flat panel of metalic strips and if you look carefully it sometimes breaks the plastic pins on which it sits, this causes poor connection to the functional bulb, the soloution is easy, get a small piece of card and fold it over till its about 2-3 mm thick then wedge it behind the panel of strips (top outside corner for brake light) and hey presto the light should work again, top tip use an umbrella and the electric seat to make sure the brake pedal is deppressed to check if alone.

SOURCE: replace rear window brake light bulb

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. (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.

SOURCE: need to replace rear brake light bulb

I experienced the same problem! After removal of the two screws, apply pushing pressure from the inside out with one hand on the outside of the lens for stability. The lens should push straight out.. There are 2 straight pins that are inserted into a plastic retainer that holds the assembly in place. Good luck

99 chevy tahoe back lights not workin top brake light works no tail lights brake lights or blinkers everything works in the front checked fuses replaced bulbs and stop light switch still nothing


Look where the wiring harness comes through the rear passenger compartment. Theres usually a junction that splits off then goes to the back tail lights, I beleive there is also a ground wire somewhere in the same vicinity. Sounds like theres a short in the harness at that junction or the ground is maybe loose or rusted and not making contact.

Rear tail and brake lights out 97 Jetta


I believe this car has a bulb with two fillaments for side and brake lights, it is unlikely that they are both burnt out at the same time but possible. It is more likely that the bulb holder or a ground connection is rusted or loose. The fuse generally covers all rear lights.
