How to change the inside overhead brake lights in an 86 corvette

1.Remove the two Phillips head screws from the brake light lens cover.
Pull the lens cover away from the tail light panel. Set it aside on a soft surface because the lens scratches easily.

3.Push in the bad brake light bulb. Twist it counterclockwise to disconnect it from the socket
Insert the new brake light bulb while wearing gloves. Twist it clockwise to secure it to the socket.

Re-position the lens cover. Push it in firmly to secure it, and then tighten the two screws.

Good luck!!!!!

Need to change brake lights on the car.

Open your trunk, you will see 2 screws that retain the brake light lens. Pull the felt on the side down, and you will see 2 plastic snap in clips. Remove the 2 screws and then use a pair of pliers to compress the plastic snap in clips to release them. From there you can remove the lens and replace the bulbs.

Change brake light bulb

I have not done one of these in a while, but I believe you open the tail gate and you will see two screws holding the lens in place. Remove the screws then the lens to access the bulbs.
Let me know.

Brake light

Access to the brake light bulb is through the tail light lens. First, remove the tail light lens by removing the single star shaped screw that secures the lens. You do not need a special screwdriver or bit: a regular flathead screwdriver will work fine.

I have a 97 Honda Accord. We just replaced the lens since it was broken, the light stilled worked, however since we changed the lens, it works except we we are actually pressing on the brake pedal. Whats...

The tail light works but not the brake light? The bulb is burned out this is a two phase, or function tail light one for running lights the other brighter one is brake lights. Simply replace the bulb and this SHOULD fix it. Good Luck
