Hi
I assume you are talking about the energy saver type U tube glass, or spiral glass tube (low pressure mercury vapour)
These work fine outdoors, I have used them for 15 years or so in my outside glass ball light fittings. They soon warm up and vapourize the mercury in the tube, the glass is fine.

How do I change light bulb in 2000 Mercury Cougar

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.

Brake light


are you reolaicng the high mount stop light bulbs or the tailamp bulbs?
Access for the tailalmp bulbs is by removing the plastic access apnels on each side (4 inches x 10 inches). The twist the wire connector about a 1/4 turn to release the connector from the lamp body. Then repalce the bulb. Some are pull out, some are twist & pull. I think it is #1157.
