How do I replace brake light bulHbs?

How do I remove the brake light lens cover to replace the bulbs? I've removed the two phillips screws, but the unit seems like something else is holding it. I've pried on it a bit, but it simply snaps back into the fender.

Replacing brake light


Hi Edward-
The top brake light lens is held on with two size T25 Torx screws. You need a suitable size torx screw driver to remove (and again later replace the assembly) the two screws. Once the screws are removed (do not lose these), you can remove the entire lens assembly. You'll see the wires leading to the plastic bulb socket. The bulb socket twists off the assembly like a bayonet. Once the bulb socket is off, you'll be able to remove the bulb simply by pulling it straight out. Replace the bad bulb by inserting the new bulb and then reassemble your third brake light in the reverse order you removed it. Enjoy!

How do I change the brake light bulb in my 2004 Honda odyssey


One comment - having just replaced a bulb. After you remove the two screws - the assemby will be loose, but doesn't just slide back. There is a plastic pressure fitting that will hold the assembly in place. Applying force to pull the assembly out caused me to crack the plastic panel where the two screws go. So don't do that! I found that applying a bit of pressure - via a flat tip screwdriver - between the assembly and the car body "popped" the plastic pressure fitting and allowed me to change the bulb. I was applying pressure to drive the assembly toward the rear of the car(and slightly up). Reassembly was just a matter of 1) gluing the cracked plastic back in place 2) aligning the white plastic pressure fitting into its receiver and 3) replacing the screws and covers. Hope this was helpful
