Open the trunk and unscrew the large black plastic nuts secruing the lamp assemblies to the body, then press the tab on the sockets and turn counter clockwise a bit to remove the sockets, change the bulbs from there.
Reverse these steps to re-assemble.

1993 ford taurus will not come out of park, brake lights won't come on even with new fuse


You likely have a broken wiring harness at the brake light switch connector under the dash above the brake pedal. You can buy a replacement stub harness from Ford parts.

Does any one know how to replace the break light switch on a 97 ford taurus?


My 97 Taurus manual gives these generic instructions...

To replace a stoplight switch, first determine what type of switch you have.

If you have an electrical switch mounted to the brake pedal in the passenger compartment:

* Unscrew the switch.
* Unplug the wires.
* Replace with a new switch. Adjust as needed.
* Plug the wires back in.

If you have a hydraulic pressure switch that is mounted in the brake master cylinder:

* Mark and disconnect the wires.
* Unscrew the switch.
* Screw the replacement switch in.
* Reconnect the wires.

  3. Step 3 Pull the brake lines out of the master cylinder.
  4. Step 4 Unbolt the two bolts that hold the master cylinder to the brake booster.
  5. Step 5 Slide the master cylinder off the brake booster.
  6. Step 6 Remove the bolts that hold the brake booster to the firewall.
  7. Step 7 Remove the cotter pin from the pin holding the back of the brake pedal to the master cylinder.
  8. Step 8 Slide the brake booster to brake pedal pin out of the mounting bracket.
  9. Step 9 Pull the brake booster off the firewall.
  10. Step 10 Install the new brake booster. Installation is the reverse of removal.
