SOURCE: replace rear window brake light bulb

I just had to do this, and it isn't all that easy or quick. First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits. (The screws are permanently attached to the lens housing so will not drop into obscurity when the nuts are removed). After removing the nuts, GENTLY work the lens housing away from the car. You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.

You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.

Just reverse these directions to reassemble the housing.

pop the trunk and right behind where the lights are pull the carpet down and their will be of the following depending on the trim.

You will either see the light sockets themselves that you can twist and pull to change the bulb, or you will see the plastic nuts/screws that you can remove to remove the entire assembly in order to access the bulbs.

If it's your 3rd brake light, the screws to access the housing are located in the upper part of the trunk

Turn signals work overhead brake light works but both lower lights do not?


If you're talking about rear brake lights not working there is a recall for the circuit boards behind the bulbs that overheat. THe board will blow the light bulbs as fast as you can replace them.

How to reset rear light out indicator lamp


There is no "reset" for the rear lamp failure system. The light goes out automatically wehen all of the rear lamps (brake and tail) are working. Did you check the brake light in the lower part of the back window? Also note that the lamp sensor is very sensitive; it needs to see all the bulbs to be the same wattage. The wattages can vary from nfgr to mfgr. Let me know waht you find on the 3rd brake lamp in the back window.
