    I can't take the brake light out of its housing. I unscrewed the 2 philips head screws. I also tried pulling it up, and side to side with no good results. I also tried a slim long screwdriver to try to pry the clamps out. I could really use some good advice for this problem

I replaced my lights last week. After the 2 screws are removed, the unit is held in place with 2 rubber posts (this may not be the right term). Pull the whole unit away from the van by forcing it out or away from the back/cargo door towards the front sliding doors, they should pop-out. The bulbs housing is a simple twist and pullout.

After lifting the rear hatch there are two phillip screws that secures the light. Take those off and gently lift the light cover out of it's housing ( becareful not to break the clips ) by moving it side to sid ewhile pulling.

I don't know this van but many tail light assembly's have a couple of screws you remove then a couple of snap clips. So after you remove the screws you gently pry the assembly off with a slim pry tool.

I need to change the brake light but can't figure out how to get the cover off and it is not in the manual. Do you know how to get to the bulb to change it?

Most 3rd brake light covers are held on with 2 plastic screws located on the sides, or the cover is just a push fit, easily pried off with a thin blade such as a putty knife screw drivers sceatch it up badly

How do I change the brake bulbs on 99 Nissan Quest

The whole assembly will pop out with a screwdriver (carefully). Then the bulbs can be reached. Just push the whole thing back into the slots when you are done.

1) Unplug the Brake Light Bulbs and with a Voltmeter, check for voltage on both sides.
2) If you have voltage: change the bulbs and recheck operation.
3) If you do NOT have voltage: go under the dash on the drivers' side. Look up onto the arm of the Brake Pedal. There should be a switch behind the arm, On the switch should be a plunger. With a partner at the rear of the vehicle: Depress the plunger in, and have your partner check for Brake Lights.
4) If you now have Brake Lights: the plunger and/or switch can be adjusted. The Brake Arm when depressed, pushes-in the plunger activating the Brake Lights. Some Plungers can be unscrewed (counterclockwise) to shorten the gap to the Brake Arm,
5) If you still have NO Brake Lights: Twist the Switch/Plunger 1/4 turn, removing it off the support bracket. Unplug this Switch and again check for voltage.
6) If you have voltage: the Switch is bad and needs to be replaced.
7) If you still have NO voltage: Check the fuses.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

Brake lights dont work w/ headlights on

there is a short in the system more than likely in the headlight switch itself causing the problem. not a hard fix just remove the covers from around the column and unbolt the headlight switch from the column and bolt in the new one and see if this fixes your problem also check and make sure you dont have a broken ground at the rear of the vehicle for the rear lights, should be bolted to the frame black wire, generally on driver side.
