It's probably just stuck to the rubber gasket. There are only 2 screws. Pull a little harder or try prying with a plastic tool at the outer back of the lens.

My brakes don't calibrate on their own, therefore they make a squeaking sound when I break how do I fix it

Check rear brakes for:
1. Brake shoe (Cracked or distorted)
2. Installation bolt (Loose)
3. Rear brake drum (Scored)
4. Brake shoe (Dirty).
5. Brake shoe (Glazed)
6. Tension or return spring (Faulty)
7. Anti-squeal shim (Damaged)
8. Shoe hold down spring (Damaged).
6. Apply a thin layer of multipurpose grease on the area between the back plate and the brake shoes by slightly pulling off the shoes with the help of a screw driver.

Brake lights won't work unless I put my car in park. Looks strange

Your vehicle is equipped with a stop lamp relay. The only thing I can think of that could even remotely have anything to do with the symptoms you are describing, is that another circuit (possibly transmission control solenoids?) have a bad connection somewhere and are feeding back and preventing your brake lamp relay from working.
I think I would start with a scan of your Engine Control Module, your Transmission Control Module and your Intrument Panel Cluster to see if there are any fault codes present that may lead you to a malfunctioning circuit.

My old mercedes w115 220 d (1974) manual sunroof is not closing. I don't know if there is any part of the sunroof missing beacuse the car was on a major reability program and I forget the pieces of the...

There's not a heck of a lot to the manual sunroof. I suspect some sort of debris in the track.
First off to remove a sunroof you open it all the way, looking down from on top of the car you will see the two chrome tracks on either side. They are healed on by two screws (there is a third adjustment screw on each side - it is obviously different and not holding the track down - don't mess with it -- or perhaps this is your problem...)
Remove the screws and the top to the tracks (they will lift right off) then slide the sunroof mostly closed and lift it out.
Now look into the tracks - back into the roof. Is there anything there that ought to not be there? Remove it - this can be challenging since it's narrow - a shot van and the biggest pice of tubing that will fit in there might do it for you.
Lube up the track with silicone lube (oil or grease will stick to dirt) clean the 4 feet of the sun roof. Notice the two rollers at the back these love the sunroof in place within it's open and push the back up when closed. With the roof out check that they move easily when you turn the handle.
Now back to the car - notice the two adjustment screws, they lift or lower the back of the track - perhaps you turned them when you were removing it the first time. In any event if they are up too high the roof won't fit (the wheels pushing out will try to push the sunroof door out of the car) You can see the small wedge next to the track - the wheels will roll up this wedge to close the back of the roof - and it needs to be in a reasonable position.
Don't force it you risk breaking the handle, the connecting mechanism or those wheels and where are you going to get a new one?
So now you can put the sunroof door back into place. Slide it back and forth - it should move easily. Now try to close it. It should close easily if not try adjusting the wedges down (this adjustment should not have changed but I am assuming you inadvertently changed these while trying to remove the sunroof door - it you're certain that you did not do that then it's something else).
Good Luck,

My break lamp,light on my dashboard doesn't turn off and my car and trunk light indicator says break on? but Its not on and I don't apply breaks

The brake light on your dash is for the e-brake. If its in the up position this will trigger the light while the car is on. If the light is on and the e-brake is down, then you probably need to change the pads.

How do I get to the brake bulbs to change them? On a 1990 GMC siera 1/2 ton pickup.There is no screws to remove the lens.

There are 2 screws holding the tail lamp assembly to the bed. Open your tail gate and you will see them. Once the 2 screws are removed, there are 2 clips that hold the outer part of the lamp assembly. Pull rearward FIRMLY to disengage the clips. Be careful not to twist sideways or you will break the clips/pins. After the lamp assembly is disengaged from the bed, you will see thecircuit board in the back of it. Remove the 2 screws in the circuit board and remove it to get to the bulbs.

NOTE: Circuit board failures are VERT COMMON on these vehicles. If replacing the bulb does not get your lights working, chances are pretty good that you will have to replace the circuit board. (See pictures below.)

Brake lamp

Try adjusting your brake light stop is located on the upper side of the break pedal...Now you also may just need to replace it, if adjusting it dint work...All you have to do is untighten the screw, and unplug it, and mve it backwards or forward a little...make sure you plug it back up, to test if it is working correctly, and then once you get it working correctly, go ahead an tighten back down the screw...Goodluck...

How do you remove the brake light assembly on a 2006 Nissan Armada

These can be a "bugger"... Once you have the 2 screws out, I usually get a small screwdriver wrapped in a rag between the lamp and the quarter panel (on the side of the vehicle) and gently pry the lamp straight towards the back. You might think that something is going to break and just when you think it will for sure, it will pop loose and the lamp will be in your hands, so be ready to catch it.

Good luck!
