Replaced passat side marker light. Now it does not fit tight.


Is it the bulb that does not fit tight...or the socket is loose in the bezel? You can carefully (with needle nose pliers and/or small screwdriver) bend the inside tabs of the socket for a tighter fit...also be sure you are using bulb lubricant to properly seal the bulb in the socket...Both fits are imperitive to new bulb life, and moisture proofing your marker light. Be sure you have not mis-placed a rubber seal that goes around the socket to assure the marker light stays dry. You can make a replacement gasket for the seal by using a thin piece of rubber...ie (bicyle innertube) trace around socket for new o-ring seal, and cut out with scissors. Hope this helps.

Brake Lights Dull or Flickering - All Cars



Dull or Dim Brake Light Repair: If your car has a dull or dim brake light it is dangerous to you and other drivers. A dim brake light is a mystery to most people because the bulb is working, just not correctly. First confirm a new and correct brake light bulb has been installed. Next, turn the ignition key to the "on" position and have a helper depress the brake pedal. With the bulb installed touch a grounded test light to the outer bulb holder ring. If the bulb brightness changes the bulb socket ground has high resistance and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Flickering Brake Light Bulb Repair: A flickering brake light bulb can be very distracting and annoying. A brake light flickers because the power or ground is being obstructed momentarily. The most common cause for this condition is a loose fitting bulb socket. To check for this condition remove the brake light bulb in question, while a helper hold their foot on the brake pedal move the bulb around slightly in the socket. If the bulb flickers replace or repair the bulb socket as needed to regain proper brake light bulb operation. If the brake light bulb socket tests ok wiggle the brake light fuse and wiring at the brake light bulb socket, brake light switch and turn signal switch (American cars). If the brake light bulb flickers repair the component or wiring as needed.
Preferred Procedure: Always replace brake light bulbs with manufacturers recommend replacement bulbs. If you cannot find the correct replacement bulb part number consult an auto parts store for additional manufacturer information.
Common Problems
When brake light bulbs are replaced with the incorrect bulb causing no or dim brake light operation
If the brake lights stay on continuously it could mean the brake light switch has failed or an adjustment is needed.

One Brake Light Not Working


Inspect Brake Light Bulb: The number one reason for a brake light operation failure is a failed brake light bulb. To check this condition access the bulb by removing the rear cover located in the trunk or rear compartment. Some cars allow you to remove the entire brake light lens to retrieve the brake light bulb. Once the bulb has been removed inspect the bulb filament. If it looks broken or if the bulb is smoked the bulb needs to be replaced. If you have replaced the bulb but it still doesn't work remove the bulb. With the key in the "on" position have someone hold their foot on the brake pedal and use a grounded test light to carful test the terminals inside the light socket. One of the terminals should illuminate the test light. (Note: Do not touch the outer metal ring that holds the bulb in place for it is grounded and can blow the system fuse if connected to the inner terminals.) If the test light illuminates reinstall the brake light bulb. While the brake pedal is depressed test the outer metal ring that holds the bulb, if power is present the ground lead from the light socket is bad. If the outer ring does not illuminate the bulb has failed and replacement is required.

Scan BCM for Trouble Codes: Some cars are equipped with a body control module or BCM this onboard computer controls and lighting signals and can malfunction not allowing the electrical current to continue to the brake light circuits. This condition is rare but it can happen. If you have performed all of the tests above and all results are positive scan the BCM for trouble codes if no codes are present try replacing the BCM.

I recently had some front drivers side damage to my car. The head light was smashed and the wheel well pushed in far enough that it occasionally rubs against the wheel when I make right turns. I've managed...


Mr Pinske,

The rear running lights aren't on the same circuit as the headlight(s). To get the car legal for
night driving, replace the broken headlight (both need to work to drive legally at night),
and tackle the running lights as a separate project.
First thing to check on the running lights - the bulbs. Why: incandescent light bulbs that are
on at the time of an impact cannot withstand the impact and the filaments can fail, so fixing
your rear running lights may simply be a matter of replacing the two light bulbs.
If the bulbs are ok, your accident has caused a wiring fault, which you will locate
between the ignition switch and the rear running lights.
Here's the manual on how to replace the headlight:

1993 Buick Century
HEADLIGHT REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Non-European Style
See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
  1. Remove the headlamp trim panel attaching screws.

  1. Remove the headlamp bulb retaining screws. Do not touch the two headlamp aiming screws, (at the top and side of the retaining ring), or the headlamp aim will have to be readjusted.

  1. Using a screwdriver, remove the retaining ring screws.

Fig. 4: Once the retaining ring screws are removed, the ring can be pulled away

  1. Pull the bulb and ring forward then separate them. Unplug the electrical connector from the rear of the bulb.

Fig. Fig. 5: Pull the bulb out and unplug the electrical connector
To install:

  1. Plug the new bulb into the electrical connector.
  2. Install the bulb into the retaining ring and install the ring and bulb.
  3. Install the trim panel.
Replacing the European style headlights is a slightly different procedure.

I cant get the retaining ring on the headlight bulb to turn so i can replace the head light. its a 1995 honda accord.


Spray VERY lightly some WD-40 around the bulb where the ring is holding it down. Wait about 2 minutes. Wiggle the ring by hand. If it still doesn't come loose, use a flat screwdriver on the edge ridges of the ring. Bump (hard) the screwdriver with the ball of your other hand or another tool to turn the ring. Before you put the new light-bulb in the hole, use a towel to wipe any WD-40 off of the ring or the hole. If any gets on the new bulb, it will shorten its life. Hopefully you are changing both bulbs and KEEP the one that was still working as an emergency spare. Sharpie LOW on the plastic socket, wrap it in a paper towel and keep in the trunk.

I have a 1993 dodge dynasty and i cant figure out how to replace the bulb, do i need to remove the headlight itself to do this


Unplug the bulb by pressing down on the locking tab and pulling the connection off.
There is a locking ring around the bulb base. Twist this ring that has raises on it. It will turn only about a 1/4th or 1/3rd of the way. Once turned, pull the bulb out by its base. The bulb has a o-ring around the base, which is snuggly into the headlight assembly, so pull pretty hard.
