Replacement rear brake bulb

My passenger side rear brake bulb burned out over the weekend. My hubby bought a new bulb, replaced it, voila. But now the blinking arrow bulbs on the side mirror on that side don't work. Did he disconnect something? Did he buy the wrong part? What gives?

He probably bought the wrong bulb. Look in the manual. They list the correct bulb numbers, so check that. It could also be that your mirror bulb decided to burn out at the same time. Also, check the fuses, see if one burned out. Look in your owner's manual to find the fuses and the right one.

2004 Verona: how to change the brake light bulb in rear...


I just replaced 2 break light bulbs in less than 10 minutes on my 04 Suzuki Verona.

First lift your trunk lid and go to whichever side that needs replacement. There was a pull down attachment that gives you access to the whole assembly.

When you have access to the assembly locate the 2 top bulbs which will be for the brakes. Turn the plastic piece which holds the bulb counter-clock-wise to get to the bulb.

Pull out old bulb(you may have to twist it slightly). I bought a replacement pack which came with 3 bulbs(#1157). Then insert new bulb into socket until firm.

Then put it back into the housing and turn clockwise to lock it in.

Then repeat the same process for the next bulb and your good to go!

If you are having any kind of difficulties with it your owners manual shows you how under bulb replacement.

Rear tail and brake lights out 97 Jetta


I believe this car has a bulb with two fillaments for side and brake lights, it is unlikely that they are both burnt out at the same time but possible. It is more likely that the bulb holder or a ground connection is rusted or loose. The fuse generally covers all rear lights.

My driver and passenger side brake lights are not working but the center brake light on the rear door works fine. The fuses and bulbs seem to be fine. Any ideas?


I would try changing the bulbs even if they seem fine. Usually when bulbs burn out both sides go at the same time.

No passenger side brake light. right flasher module going bad .


Check the rear bulb socket. You might even try wiggling the wires on the back of the socket while you have the signal on.

99 A4 tali light assmbly missing top bulb passenger side


That's the rear foglight socket. The rear foglight idea is European, and they ship the Audi over with a rear foglight as well, but it's only on the driver's side (that's the way rear fogs are done in Europe). That socket is fully powered though, and wired to the same dash switch as the driver's side rear fog. What you can do (what I did on my 99 A4) was to use a drill and **** out the rectangular opening in the rear taillight panel, and then put a bulb in that socket. Voila, instant dual rear fogs.

This is a good idea because in Europe, the police understand that a rear fog is only on one side. In the US, our police don't always know that, and you may get pulled over if you have that on - they may think you have a blown taillight bulb. Do the dual fog mod as described above - it'll save you the hassle and it looks better too.

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.

PT Cruiser Brake Light


The bulb in the rear light has burned out and to replace it follow these instructions: 1) go to your owner's manual to find out the part number. You can find and purchase the replacement bulb at Target, any auto parts store and even at Walmart for under $4.00; 2) pop open the trunk door; 3) get a phillips screw driver and unscrew the 2 screws holding the rear brake light fixture to your car body; 4) as soon as you turn over the fixture you'll see where to pull out the burned out bulb and replace it with the new one(s). Good luck!
