How do I remove the 3rd brake light housing on a 2004 Kia Sedona? Does it just pull off or do I need to remove the entire panel to replace the bulb?


Usually you can replace light bulbs without removing anything. You just pull back a panel in the trunk and the light have a plastic socket that twists to unlock it so you pull it out and replace the bulb in the socket. Then place the socket back in the light and twist it to lock it back in to place. It really simple. Head light need replacing but not typical tail lights.

Right front side turn signal does not work replaced all bulbs and checked fuses headlight flashers work when hazards are on front to back except driverside turn signal ,in dash right stays solid left


I don't believe it would be a bad ground for just one light. It could be a wire, a socket connector, or the bulb socket itself. See if the wire has power at the socket when signaling left, with key on. If there is power, probably a bad socket or connector. If no power, check for power coming from flasher-the wire going to front left, or driver's side. If you have power from the flasher, but nothing at the socket, the wire has probably broken.
Good luck.

How do i take back driverside brake light cover off to replace turn signal bulb its a 2007


first find your owners manual, it will have specifc instructions. generally speaking you access the rear of the light assembly, pull the sockets out to change the bulbs. examine the electrical connections of the bulb closely and replace with the exact same bulb. there are two sockets in there which look the same but take entirely different bulbs.

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.

    Change out a taillight


    You want to change the tail light bulb?

    The process for replacing tail light bulbs is the same in all models. If you have a burnt-out tail light bulb, you may need to replace the brake light, the reverse light or the turn signal. The procedure to replace each of the bulbs is the same.



      Instructions

      1. Open the Hummer's rear swing gate. This will expose the edge of the vehicle's tail light assembly. You'll see two small Phillips head screws that hold the tail light assembly in place. Put on your gloves.

      2. Remove the two screws from the tail light assembly. Pull the tail light out and inspect the back for two bulbs. The top bulb is the brake light and turn signal. The bottom bulb is the reverse bulb. Determine which bulb you need to replace.

      3Rotate the bulb's socket counterclockwise to disconnect it. Unplug the bulb from its socket.

      4Push the replacement bulb into its socket firmly. Insert the socket back into the tail light. Turn it clockwise to secure it in place.

      5Place the tail light into its cradle. Hold it with one hand and replace the Phillips head screws with the other.
