The middle back light doesnt work on my 2004 olds alero. what is that light and do i need it to work if both my brake lights work

I believe you are referring to the "Elevated Brake Light". These lights are mounted in various places depending on the vehicle. Most cars have them mounted on the back deck but it appears yours is mounted inside the trunk lid. In most states, a car must have all lights(including the elevated brake light) functioning to pass vehicle inspection.

I have an 2004 Alero and I have to replace brakes every 3 months. What is going on?

you need to have the brake hydraulic system checked for the calipers sticking if you have 4 wheel disc brakes as they can seize on the sliding mechanism causing the brakes not to fully release.also if the caliper pistons are sticking in the calipers this will cause the same problem.make sure you or anyone else that drives your car doesn`t drive with 2 feet as just slight pressure from resting your foot on the brake pedal can cause pressure in the system applying the brakes enough to wear them prematurely but not put the brake lights parts also will cause excessive wear.

Take off the wheel, then use a c-clamp and put it on the back side of the calipers and on the outside brake pad. That will make it easier to take off. Then there will be two bolts with the heads on the inside that go through the caliper that need to be taken off. After that the rotor can simply be beaten off with a rubber mallet, no nut removal neccesary. Then it all goes back on in reverse. Just make sure you pump the brakes up before you take it for a drive so that the piston in the caliper can return back to it's normal state.

Tail/brake light bulb replacement 2004 Olds Alero

In the trunk, in the rear corners, you'll see some plastic "caps" with tabs on them, similar to wing nuts. Remove those, and the taillight comes right off the back of the car. That will allow you to replace the bulbs.
