SOURCE: where doe's that spring go on rear brake drums 1996 chevy truck every thing is at top not at bottom, star wheel adjuster?

there should be several springs. first there are (2) real short springs that hold the shoes to the dust cover/back plate. they go in the center of each shoe. then there is a short spring that goes at the bottom where the adjuster is located. there should be a hole in each shoe. finally there is a long spring that goes at the top where your brake cylinder is and this is what gets attched last after your emergancy brake levers are placed between the shoes .

There is a probable bad wiring connection in problem one and three.
#2 Possible water leak causing bulb break. Try wd40 in socket. you need a wiring diagam and cheap voltmeter if you want do it yourself.

How do I replace brake lights on 2006 Chevy Silverado?

The bulb, or the full assembly?

If just the bulb, it's easy. Lower the tailgate. On the inside you will see the 2 hex screws that hold the assembly in place. Remove those carefully so you don't lose the nut inside the body, and carefully pull the assembly out. The main brake light is at the top, just twist the socket and pull gently. The bulb just pulls out of the socket.

DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW BULB GLASS! It will cause it to burn out much faster.

Replace the bulb in the housing, and then test it. Once it works, reverse the steps. Also, do not do this if it is very humid or rainy outside. The moisture can get into the assembly, and cause an early failure due to condensation. If you see water inside, take it apart and let it sit in the open to dry out. Then put it back in.

I have a 2004 chevy silverado. my brake lights stopped working so i replaced them and still nothing. the only one that works is the brake light on top of the cab. any suggestions?

If all bulbs are good is most likely printed circuit board that bulbs plug into, very common to go bad. HELP/motormite sells them in 2 pack for both sides. Available in any auto parts store for less than the dealer charges.

Replacing brake switch on a 2000 Chevy Siverado, wil lthios take care of the problem...brake lights work okay..but when you brake and signal at the same time it stays lit solid and when our back up...

Check the brightness of the bulbs when they work. It sounds like a filiment broke in one of them and is laying across the other filiment in the bulb causing all lights to come on at times or not at all. You probably have one or more bad bulbs.

Brake lights do not work, all other lights work.

It is a common chevy problem for the circuit board that holds to bulb to fail, are your running lights and signals still working back there as well? If not then you need to replace the boards.
