    HI, what bulb are you looking for and what type of vech? year make and model?

  • jfussner Aug 28, 2010

    This is for a 2007 Hyundai Sonata - it's the rear window break light. I can't see the way to get to the bulb - I assume its from underneath from inside the trunk.

You will need to remove the light assembely and yes the bolts for this are in the trunk. There should be 2 bolts and 1 nut securing it to the back deck. once you have these removed you can lift up and back on the light removing it. You may need to unclip the wiring connector to get out far enugh to change the bulb. Good luck

How to change the brake light


What you want to do is open the trunk and remove the fasteners that hold the trunk lining to the rear deck panel and separate the lining from the deck panel.Disconnect the lamp wiring from the wiring harness.Now you will see some nuts that hold the tail lamp to the lower deck and the quarter panel.Remove these bolts or plastic wing nuts and remove the assembly from the car.To change the bulbs twist the socket and pull the socket and replace the bulb.Just reverse the process to put it back in.

I can not figure out how to get into the rear light bulbs (Stop light, etc). The manual says to remove two (phillips) screws to disengage the housing from the body. There's even a a picture. However, on...


To access the rear lights, you access them from inside the trunk. Pull down the carpet at rear of trunk near latch. There should be the screws the manual is referring to. Once you locate and remove all screws, gently pull the light assembly away from body. Replace the needed bulbs then gently push assembly against the body, replace the screws and set carpet back in place.

Change break light


start by opening the rear gate (deck lid / trunk / boot) and using a small pointed tool , pop out the center of the retaining clips to loosen them to allow access behind the interior trunk liner.
This should allow you access to the rear of the tail light and the bulb holders / sockets to change the lights.
Do it right and replace all of the lights right away , keeping the old un-burnt bulbs as emergency spares.

Water is leaking into the trunk of my 2005 Honda accord whenever it rains


My 1990 Honda Accord does this too.
When I wash it or when it rains. If I open the trunk/deck lid water flows out of the right rear tail light housing into the trunk.

Solution: get some rubber gasket sealant and apply under the lower gasket around the rear window on each side at the corners. Allow for drying time. Close the trunk and try some water if this doesn't work you will likely have to replace the rear window seal.

Best of luck.
