Have no users manual and i'm not sure how you would replace the light bulb on the brake light


Change the Rear Brake Lights
  • Open the trunk and twist the retaining wing nuts off the studs holding the carpeted trim cover in place on the back side of the tail lamps.
  • Pull the carpeted trim cover out of the way and pry the plastic caps out of the holes with the screwdriver tip.
  • Unbolt the nuts holding the tail-lamp assembly in place using the socket set.
  • Pull the tail lamp assembly away from the body of the Stratus. Grab the socket for the bulb in question and twist it counterclockwise to remove it. Pull the old bulb out by hand and insert the replacement bulb. Reinstall the socket in reverse of removal.
  • Push the tail lamp assembly back into position and tighten the nuts back down onto the retaining studs using the socket set. Pop the plastic caps back into the holes, pull the carpeted trim cover back into position and reinstall the plastic wing nuts. Close the trunk.

How do you replace brake lamp? Thank you.


Hello,

To replace the brake lamp of Your volkswagen beetle 2001 model is relatively simple. Please follow the steps below:
  1. To remove the lens and gain access to the bulbs You first need to release the lens holder from inside the trunk by completely unscrewing the large plastic wing nut that is under a round plastic panel that's located almost directly behind the rear brake light lens.
  2. To gain access to the plastic wing nut remove the round panel by gently prying it off.
  3. After this is done You release the lens by using something flat like a dinner table knife to pry and release the clip that holds the lens in place.
  4. Locating the clip: The rear fender has two seams that end at the light lens, the inboard seam (the one closest to the hatch)is where you want to insert the table knife to pry the metal clip that holds the lens in place.
  5. Gently and carefully insert the knife blade directly at the seam and pry upward to release the lens.
  6. Once the clip releases pull the lens the rest of the way and remove the bulbs by turning the bulb holder sockets counter-clockwise.
  7. After this is done remove bulbs by slightly pushing down on the bulb and turning it counter-clockwise.
  8. The reinstall is reverse of the removal the procedure.
  9. When re-installing take care to clock the lens where the metal clip and the lens protrusions end up in the same position as before.
  10. You may need to assist sliding the lens retaining clip in with the knife when reinstalling.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

How to replace passenger side brake light bulb


The process for changing the tail light bulbs for a 2003 New Beetle TDI is relatively simple.

To remove the lens and gain access to the bulbs you first need to release the lens holder from inside the trunk by completely unscrewing the large plastic wing nut that is under a round plastic panel that's located almost directly behind the rear brake light lens.

To gain access to the plastic wing nut remove the round panel by gently prying it off.

Locating the clip: The rear fender has two seams that end at the light lens, the inboard seam (the one closest to the hatch)is where you want to insert the table knife to pry the metal clip that holds the lens in place.

Gently and carefully insert the flathead screwdriver directly at the seam and pry upward to release the lens. Once the clip releases pull the lens the rest of the way and remove the bulbs by turning the bulb holder sockets counter-clockwise. After this is done remove bulbs by slightly pushing down on the bulb and turning it counter-clockwise.

To reinstall is reverse of the removal the procedure. When re-installing take care to clock the lens where the metal clip and the lens protrusions end up in the same position as before. Note: you may need to assist sliding the lens retaining clip in with the screwdriver when reinstalling!

How do you replace the rear window wiper on a 2006 Nissan Murano. I can not see how to remove the existing wiper.


Sure, you have to remove the outer blade by moving the plastic cover off of the mount location & then remove the nut. You'll need to remove the door trim panel once the back door is open, once removed you'll see the harness leading to the motor & the mounting bolts. once removed, it's a straight pull out & you are done. To remove the back door trim, you'll need to gently pry out the 2 lights with a padded flat screwdriver & disconnect the plug-in connector, push in on the little buttons at the bottom of the door and then pry the 1/2 " push in plugs out, (these are all reusable) remove the handle/grip by gently prying & the panel will more or less "pop" out of the holders. It's a push fit once the bottom retainers are removed. Good Luck

How do you remove the tail light assembly on a 2000 new beetle? I removed the knob on the back of the assembly and I am still unable to remove the assembly.


one you remove the knob. take a flat head screwdriver covered with like electrical tape or something so as to not scratch your paint. wedge it behind the tail light right where the bumper meets with the fender and pry up. thats it!

How do you remove rear tail light assembly to replace lamp? I remover the two screws that attach the assembly to the rear pillar but it is still attached to something else.


1. Open the tailgate.
2. Look closely at the side of the brake light cover where it is closest to the tailgate. It is black plastic.
3. You will see two roundish looking outlines in the black plastic (not the two outlines in the plastic that is the same color as your van). There is just enough of a crack to slide a small screwdriver into the crack.
4. Pop the little plastic "doors" up to reveal 10mm nuts with Philips heads.
5. Remove the bolt/screw from each of the two holes. The tail light cover will be loose, but it will not come out yet.
6. Find something small to pry with. It should be plastic or you might scratch your paint.
7. On the side of the van where the tail light cover is flush (the far opposite end of where the bolts were), push a small tool (screwdriver?) under the edge of the cover and pry straight up. There is a peg that fits snugly into a hole in the van. The peg is attached to the tail light cover. With a small flashlight, you should be able to see the peg after prying it up just a little. The peg will pop out and that will allow you to change the bulb.
8. To replace the cover, start by popping the peg back into the hole, then replace the two screws. Finish by snapping the screw covers shut.

Replace wiper arm on 1998 vw passat


Does the wiper motor work ? Check for any horseshoe clips that it might have. If you removed the nut that holds the wiper arm in place at the motor, then you may have to pry it up not using too much force . And being careful to place something underneath the pry tool so no damage will occur.

You have to remove the hub to remove the bolts, if they won't come out by rotating the hub.

To remove the hub, take the cap off at the center of the hub (the cap would be poking you a the center of the hub, and is about 2 inches in diameter.

There should be a cotter key or something preventing the spindle nut from turning. Remove it. If there is a cover over the spindle nut, remove it. Take the spindle nut off. Pull lightly on the hub, and it will come off. Watch for the front bearing to pop out.

To reassemble, put hub back on spindle, put bearing and washer against bearing, thread on spindle nut and tighten while rotating hub. Back off 1/2 to 1 flat add cover (if used) and install cotter key.

Replace tail light bulb


The process for changing the tail light bulbs for a 2002 New Beetle in my case a TDI is relatively simple. To remove the lense and gain access to the bulbs you first need to release the lense holder from inside the trunk by completely unscrewing the large plastic wing nut that is under a round plastic panel that's located almost directly behind the rear brake light lense. To gain access to the plastic wing nut remove the round panel by gently prying it off. After this is done you release the lense by using something flat like a dinner table knife to pry and release the clip that holds the lense in place. Locating the clip: The rear fender has two seams that end at the light lense, the inboard seam (the one closest to the hatch)is where you want to insert the table knife to pry the metal clip that holds the lens in place. Gently and carefully insert the knife blade directly at the seam and pry upward to release the lense. Once the clip releases pull the lens the rest of the way and remove the bulbs by turning the bulb holder sockets couter-clockwise. After this is done remove bulbs by slightly pushing down on the bulb and turning it counter-clockwise. The reinstall is reverse of the removal the procedure.When re-installing take care to clock the lense where the metal clip and the lense protrusions end up in the same position as before.
