    It is the high mount stop lamp. The long center light above rear window.

  • j_brain May 22, 2009

    It looks like the entire brake light needs to be replaced. Can I only get that from a GMC dealer? Thanks for the help!! Very much appreciated :-)

First open the rear liftgate (not just the glass). This will expose the two screws that secure the housing of the lamp to the body (it also exposes the connector plug which, obviously, you should unplug). After removing the two screws, separate the rubber housing from the LED lamp itself....and there you have it!
The third brake light might be a sealed lamp, so the entire brake light must be changed. you can't just replace the bulbs.
I hope this helps.

    The dealer is the most expensive way to go. I would shop on-line for better deals. :)

BMW 650 Tail Light Problem


If you find that your BMW 650 CS/GS/Dakar tail light doesn’t work at all or flickers when riding, chances are the metal power terminals inside the bulb socket are no longer making a good connection with the metal bumps on the tail light bulb. This is a very common problem with the BMW 650 of all makes, models, and years. Fortunately, there is a very easy fix.
Due to excessive vibration, temperature changes, and replacing light bulbs, the two metal power terminal tabs inside the tail light socket deform and get pushed too far back inside the tail light chassis. This prevents the tail light bulb from making good contact with the power terminals and the smallest vibrations can cause the electric connection to break temporarily or indefinitely.

To fix the problem, all you need to do is pry the two metal power tabs forward just a little so that they make a better connection with the metal bumps on the tail light bulb. If you look at the back of the bike, the red tail light casing on the 650 CS/GS/Dakar is held in place with two screws. If you remove these screws the red tail light casing comes off and you have access to the light bulb inside. At this point, turn the ignition on, but you don’t need to start the bike. Remove the light bulb by pushing in and twisting clockwise about 1/8 turn. If the bulb flickered while removing it, then the bent power terminals are most likely the cause.
Looking at the tail light bulb you should see two metal bumps. These bumps need to make a good connection with the two metal power terminals inside the tail light casing. Turn the ignition off and find a small tool that you can use to pry the power terminals forward just a bit. Make sure the bike is off and you don’t want the power terminals tabs inside the tail light casing to touch.
After you have made the adjustment, turn the ignition back to “on” and re-insert the taillight bulb. If the bulb is lit, then you are done. If it still flickers a bit and doesn’t stay lit, then you will need to continue prying the tabs forward until a good connection is made.

I have a 2008 aveo. i took off the headlight but i can not get the plastic casing off to change the bulb.


If you are talking about the headlight casing, where the clear headlight casing connects to your back headlight casing, that isn't the way to change the light bulb, you're going to damage the seals that protect water, and humidity.

How do i change the brake light on jeep liberty 2006?


1) You will need to open the rear swing door.

2) On the inside jam there are two torx headed screws (T-15's if I remember correctly).

3) Unscrew the two torx screws.

4) The light is now held by two mounting tabs (small spherical headed plastic sets that go through a rubber grommet).

5) You will need to pry the light casing off (easy pressure with a good size flat head screw driver will do the trick).

6) The light bulbs are twist mount settings inside the light casing.

7) Twist out the mount setting, change the bulbs, and reset the light mountings.

8) To put the light casing push the light casing back on and put in the screws. Everything else will work in reverse when it comes to assembling the whole unit.

I need to know how to change the headlight on a ford excort zx2 2002. I am unable to see the bulb because of some kind of casing over it. do I have to replace the entire light or is there a bulb somewhere...


no you do not need to change the entire light assembly the bulb is located under the hood just behind the assembly and if you can get your hand in there there is a socket you turn counter clockwise and then the bulb comes out when replacing with the new one please remember to wipe the bulb off if you touch it with your hands but if you go to auto zone and buy the bulb they will help you with installing it

Change brake light bulb


If you need to replace your tail light bulb, first remove the cover(its round) from the inside of your trunk, there will be a black knob that needs to be unscrewewed totally to release the back light casing. Next, along the rear fenders where the lights are, there are two gaps. The insde gap( nearest hatch back door) is a release tab/clip on the light inside between the gaps. Insert a butter knife or something slim and pull out casing(don't be afraid, and it takes a little force to pull out). After you pull out casing,you'll find to light swithces(one is for the turn signals and other is your break lights). Turn the light switch counter clockwise(assuming it's hanging upside down)and remove. Switch out light bulb with new one(autozone has them for about $4.00 - package of 2)replace every thing back as you uninstalled it. Its recommended to replace all bulbs, that way it you don't have to do it again later when they go out. It'll save you lots of time and money. Hope this will help anyone so print and save in your manual for later use.

How do I change brake light bulb on 2005 Nissan Altima


The first objective is to figure out which bulb you need. I had to replace the bulb for the largest light which was a Sylvania 3157. The next objective is to remove the dang plastic carpet holder/net clip. Recognize that it is a two part piece. Use a flathead screwdriver for leverage. Pry the cap off by levering the screwdriver in the slot on the holder. Then go behind the carpet and pinch the plastic pin still holding the holder in place. Next,pry off the while plastic pieces from the two bolt/nuts you'll need to remove (see manual). Remove the nuts and give the two screws a push from the inside so you can see how the whole light casing comes off. Pry it off from the outside. On the backside of the bulb holder, turn bulb base counterclockwise and gently remove. Pull bulb upward and replace. Do not touch glass on new bulb with your fingers (wear non-powdered rubber gloves). Make sure the bulb snaps in place. Follow these instructions in reverse. Smile, you just learned something new and saved yourself some easy money.
