How do you change tail light bulb on 1997 Dodge Intrepid?


In the trunk. You will find black plastic wing nuts that hold the felt panels in place, remove and pull back the panel pieces and you can now access the taillight assembly, if you can't access the bulbs from that point you need to remove the tail lights by un bolting the 10mm nuts holding the taillight assembly then remove the taillight from the car now on the outside you should be able to access the bulbs from there by turning the bulb plugs about a 1/4 to a 1/2 turn, reassemble the taillight and interior panels.

Open the trunk, peel back the trunk liner to expose wiring connector and taillight housing plastic retainers, disconnect wiring connector and loosen plastic retainers and remove the taillight assembly. See diagram in section 7 of your manual to figure out which bulbs to replace if needed. !!!Don't touch the bulb socket unless you're sure the car's electrical systems are switched off.

How do i change out my rear brake light bulb


Instructions on how to change the bulbs should be inside your owners manual.But here you go;

Lift the tailgate and ensure that it is properly supported.
  • 3 Remove the two screws at the top of the taillight assembly with a Phillips screwdriver. Set both screws together, to the side of your work area.
  • 4 Grasp the taillight assembly horizontally on the left and right. Slowly pull the assembly toward you and away from the truck's frame. Use care while you're pulling the taillight assembly as there will still be wiring connected to it. Once the assembly is away from the frame lay it down on the bumper.
  • 5 Remove the brake light socket from the taillight assembly. Rotate the socket a quarter-turn counter-clockwise to unlock it from the assembly. Withdraw the socket slowly from the hole on the taillight assembly to avoid breaking the brake light bulb.
  • 6 Remove the brake light bulb from its socket by grasping it between three fingers and pulling it straight out of the socket. Put on some latex gloves before you touch the new brake light bulb.
  • 7 Place a small hairline bead of dielectric grease on the metal contacts at the base, on both sides of the brake light bulb. If the grease gets anywhere on the glass portion of the bulb, discard it and start with a fresh bulb. This grease is not absolutely necessary.
  • 8 Insert the brake light bulb back into its socket. Push down on the bulb gently until it seats itself.
  • 9 Now that it's connected carefully insert the bulb into the socket back through the hole on the taillight assembly. Lock the socket back in place by rotating it a quarter-turn clockwise. Do not over rotate the socket. When it locks in place, you stop rotating.
  • 10 Lift the taillight assembly up off the bumper. Position it so that it's ready for re-installation. Push the assembly back into place on the frame. Make sure that all of its wires are tucked back behind it and that no wires get pinched.
  • 11 Reinstall the two mounting screws and tighten them a quarterturn past hand tight. Shut the lift gate door.

    Left brake light dont work when brake peddel is applied


    Replace the bulb,
    1. Open the lift gate on the rear of your Blazer or drop it if you have the tail gate that folds down. Locate the screws on the inner edge of the lift gate frame. There are two screws--remove them with a Phillips screwdriver.
    2. Slide the taillight assembly out of the rear of the truck, being careful to not break the locating tabs on the rear of the housing. Locate the bulb sockets on the rear of the taillight assembly.
    3. Rotate the light bulb socket counterclockwise about a quarter turn to unlock it from the taillight assembly. Pull the socket straight out of the assembly with the bulb attached to it.
    4. Remove the bulb from the socket by pulling it straight out of the socket. If you are removing the entire assembly from the truck, remove the remaining sockets from the rear of the taillight assembly, lay them aside and remove the assembly completely.
    5. Reinstall everything in revers and don't for get to *** some grease to your socket before you place the new bulb in place and test the operation of the new bulb before you reinstall the tail light.
    Thank you for using fixya and here is the bulb you need for the trail light.The 1999 Blazer uses a 3057 bulb available at most auto parts stores.

    Brake light bulb replacement.


    Remove panel in trunk (round one on each side) reach inside unscrew toggle bolt then remove the entire taillight assembly, may have to push from inside. When you have the taillight assembly out you will see where the bulb is on the back of the assembly, remove and replace with new bulb. Put taillight assembly back in, replace toggle bolt make sure it is tight and replace panel. It is a pain the first time but I have done this 3 or 4 times it gets easier.

    How to change the flasher /tail light on a 2000 buick lesabre


    go to the trunk, remove the plastic nut holding the trunk interior skin in place (the nuts are the plastic that the trunk net hangs on), the skin will pull away with a snap after that. Remove three bolts from the back of the taillight, the taillight assembley will slid out from the exterior of the car. Remove the wire assembly from the taillight, replace the bulb and put it back into the taillight. SLide the taillight assembly back in place, but the three bolts back on, snap the trunk skin into place, screw the plastic trunk net bolt back in.
