Normally very easy should be a few screws on the outside of the light cover and maybe pop the rear hatch to see two others but be sure when you try to remove the cover you dont force it once all the screws are out will nearly fall off then the bullbs normally just lightly push in and turn out.Hope this helps

The left blinker on my 2001 mercury sable blinks twice as fast as my right one. Does that mean I should replace the bulb?


This usually indicates that there is a bulb burned out.You will need to put the right signals on and walk around the vehicle too see which ones need to light up in order to find the one on the left that is burned out when you turn the signal to the left.

Driver side left turn signal flashing really fast. left brake light does not work. bulbs appear good. what should I do?


sometimes a bulb can be bad and appear good or there may be nothing wrong with the element but could be a problem in the contacts. if the turn signal is blinking fast and brake light out is an indicator that the bulb is bad if you do not want to replace the bulb without knowing for sure if it is bad take the one out of the other side and try it on the left and see if the problem changes to the right side. although bulbs are only about two dollars for a pack of two even though it seems good replacing it to see if it fixes it would be the first step in troubleshooting the problem. to eliminate the easiest most obvious solution first. i think a new bulb will fix your problem

2003 Ford Explorer Sport rear turn signal acting up


if it's only the rear turn signal that does this, check the plug where the bulb snaps in. if loose or bad connection to bulb, it will sometimes work and sometimes not. if its both the front and rear turn signal bulbs, could be the combination switch. these were common failures on fords

2005 mustang right turn signal wont work but bulb lights when lights are on. When signal is on only the first bulb blinks (and twice as fast as left signal) and second signal bulb doesn't work at all.


Replace the bulb(s). Tail light bulbs have more than one filament. One is for the brakes and one is for the turn signals. The reverse light is a light all by itself. When the filament for the turn signal goes out the brakes will still all light up, but the turn signal will not.
