just check accurately bulbs if you mixed it could happen like that, some cars for the brake lights use two contact bulbs some of them single contact, two contact bulbs can give two signals which one is used for brake ligths and another for taillight, so check the bulbs carefully
If your car with xenon head light you don't try to replace bulb, it's need experience hand to do it, if it's jest normal light you can replace it, first open engine hood then have a look back side of the head light you can see back cover, on the cover you can see direction have mentioned open and lock turn the cove to open direction, after that you can see the electrical socket for bulb jest pull it out then have a good look the bulb have lock by the tensioned string lock, if you have good look you can see how it's can remove, it have hookup on bottom you have to press the lock for release from locking point after release from lock you have to fold it up and take bulb out, the bulb also have center lip to fix it right position you must have good look before remove the bulb and keep it in mind, center lip must be set upward, and install revers order, is this information helped you?
If they all stopped working at the same time then it is probably a fuse or possibly 2. Check your fuse panels in the dash and under the hood. The dash lights and gauges should be a fuse labeled instrument cluster or guages, it is probably blown. The other fuse to look for will be the tail light fuse. This is where I would begin.
Hi if you have replaced the bulbs and you still have no reversing lights then this is a good indication that the revers light switch on the gear box needs replacing, get this replaced and this should then solve your problem
Such and early model, the lenses should unscrew from the outside and take them off and replace the bulb. If not there will be reataining screws behind the lights which will relaese the light unit and hey presto.
You may have a short if both have burned out and you have recently replaced one.
Other wise to remove the head light assembly---There are 2 screws under the hood above each light they have a combination slotted and nut head. Remove them, then push fingers between valance below light (its rubber) and "pull forward" assembley will pop out of headlight retaining snap. Pull head ligth as an assembly) Remove wire harness plug lower bottom. Turn light over to back, remove rubber outer seal cap, you can now look inside assembly and see back of light. You will see 2 retaining screws ( they are tork head style) loosen them just enough so you can twist the socket until it releases. Pull light out by wires, once out remove wiring plug from back of light bulb.
Be carefull here as there is a retaining plate between light and plug that needs to be reinstalled the same way it comes off, on the new bulb, transfer retaining plate to new light. Plug back into harness. (do not touch the light bulb surface, as oil from fingers will cause light to burn out!! Use rubbing alcohol to clean if you do touch it.) Using a pair of needle nose pliers to hold wires harness of plug, reinsert the light back into the housing (gently here) twist into place and tighten screws then reasemble in reverse of removal process..
The solution posted on Sep 8 2008 is good. Let me just add my own observations.
First of all, the bulb you will need is probably going to be H-7. Just go to the auto parts store and find the bulb that says H-7 on it. Apparently you're not supposed to replace just one bulb. You should replace them both at the same time, so buy two bulbs ($27.00). Also, I needed a flathead screwdriver and a pair of latex gloves. Don't try to do this at nighttime. You will need plenty of light.
If you're replacing the driver's side light, you'll have to remove a plastic shield from above the light. Not a big deal. Use a philipshead screwdriver and a pair of pliars (gently!). Remove the black plug that goes into the back of the bulb by squeezing the sides and pulling. Then remove the black rubber boot that goes over it. The flathead screwdriver was helpful getting the boot off.
When removing the silver clip that holds the bulb in, you'll have to push in on the side of the clip closer to the driver's side of the car. (Please note that it is not necessary to unscrew any screws.) It swivels open like a door.
Next, remove the bulb. The bulb is attached to a black adapter thing. Use the flathead screwdriver to pry that black thing off the bulb. Throw the old bulb in the garbage. Put your latex gloves on and put the new bulb into the black adapter thing. (Remember not to touch the glass part of the bulb with your fingers. It's not good for the bulb and you will decrease its lifespan.)
Put the bulb with the black adapter thing into the headlight. You may have to fiddle with it a little bit. (You're still wearing your latex gloves, right?) It only goes one way. There's a little notch that fits into the ten o'clock position. (Just rotate the bulb in the headlight. You'll see where it fits in.)
Close the silver clip back over the bulb. This part may be challenging. Remember, the bulb should have no wiggle to it when the silver clip is installed correctly. The end of the clip fits deep inside the headlight. Push it in and try and find where it clips in. It might be hard to do. Don't get frustrated- you're almost done.
Put the rubber boot back on. It has to be tight to protect the bulb from water. Then plug in the bulb. Replace the black plastic shield over the driver's side light. Finally, test the light.
Replacing both headlights took me about 60 - 90 minutes.
