Testimonial: "This is the third time someone flipped me an answer that directly applies to the "other bulbs" I mentioned. The cornering bulb is NOT accessible in the same way, if at all. It nearly appears that the whole assembly is molded around the cornering bulb."

2004 ford f150 turn signals not working .. flashers come on ..fuses okay


You 2004 Ford F150 use OEM 3157 bulbs.
Inside these bulbs,there are TOTAL of TWO bulb filaments.
When one of the two burned out,it will cause turn signal problem.

Stock up with 4 bulbs before you start.
Auto part store sell then is pair.
I recommend you replace then in part and save the good on for emergency.
I attached a photo of the 3157 bulb below.
As you can see there are two filaments inside the bulb.
Check the bulb one by one and you will get the signal system working.
==== There are protective grease inside the base of the socket.
Make sure it's not blocking the four contact points (both side of the socket). ==== mustgo_1.jpg

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.

How do I change the back turn signal on my 2001 ford taurus


DIY - 5 Minute Turn Signal Bulb Replacement This is very simple to do. First you will need an 8mm socket and wrench to loosen one bolt. Second a good long flat head screwdriver. There are two black metal folded tabs behind the headlight assembly and one 8mm bolt holding it in plae at the center point of the front of the car. Loosen the bolt and remove. Use the screw driver to pull up the metal straps and then slide forward the entire assembly. This will slide easily unless your front bumper has been bumped! That will make it a little difficult to slide if it is out of alignment. If it was never bumped than this should take all of 5 minutes.

Replacing front parking lamp/turn signal/cornering lamp bulbs
  1. Remove headlight / lens assembly per below steps mentioned later

  2. Rotate the bulb socket of the offending bulb counterclockwise and remove from the lamp assembly.

  3. Carefully pull bulb straight out of the socket and push in the new bulb

  4. Install the bulb socket into the headlight assembly by rotating it clockwise

  5. Re-install headlight assembly - hold snugly into place until the brackets line up and retainer pins can be pushed down

To replace headlight bulb:
  1. Make sure headlight switch is turned OFF.

  2. Remove the bolt at the end of the headlamp housing.

  3. Pull the two black tabs with the L shaped bracket toward the back and then up and pull out(Located at the back of the headlamp) to release the headlamp assembly from the vehicle and pull headlamp assembly forward.

  4. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb by pulling it.

  5. Remove the bulb socket retaining ring by rotating it counterclockwise.

  6. Remove the bulb from the lamp assembly by pulling straight back.
    Do not twist, as there are alignment slots built into the lamp assembly socket.
    It may take some effort to remove the lamp because it has a rubber o-ring type seal - try a bit of wiggling side-to-side

  7. Insert new bulb into headlight assembly - don't touch the glass - use gloves, paper towel, or similar
    Make sure that the flat surface of the bulb socket is facing upward, and is firmly seated

  8. Re-attach retainer ring by rotating clockwise

  9. Reconnect the electrical harness

  10. Re-install headlight assembly - hold snugly into place until the brackets line up and retainer pins can be pushed down

NOTES
  • Do not touch the glass of the new halogen bulb - the oils in the skin will shorten the life-span of the new bulb, or possibly cause the bulb to explode when first turned on

    If the bulb is accidentally touched, it should be cleaned with rubbing alcohol before being used.

  • FRONT Turn-signal - 3457 AK (amber)

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.
