1999 Chevy Express Van tail light bulb replacement

Is it possible to replace just the bulb, or must I replace the entire lens and housing? Just the back up tail lamp is not functional and I can't get it to pass inspection. Replacing the entire unit is expensive. Can I just replace the bulb? Do you have an exploded view diagram of the unit? Thanks! Charles Burt Magnolia, Tx

Yes, you can replace just the bulb. Remove the light assembly and you can get to the bulbs on the back side.

Can I just replace the third brake light bulb only ..just the bulb.on a 2005 Chevy Malibu LS.or do I have to replace the hole brake light itself..


from inside the trunk looking up at the light First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits. (The screws are permanently attached to the lens housing so will not drop into obscurity when the nuts are removed). After removing the nuts, GENTLY work the lens housing away from the car. You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.

You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.

Just reverse these directions to reassemble the housing.

I have a 2002 Chevy Express van. All of the tail lights work except the driver side. Left signal light and backup light works fine. Problem: The driver side brake light works as long as the running...


The printed circuit board that the bulbs push into needs replacement. Any autoparts store will have it. It just screws into tailight assembly & attaches to wiring harness.

How to replace brake light in 2008 chevy express cargo van


You have to remove the upper applique to remove the tail lamp, it is the trim panel above the lamp. I think it is held in place by two nuts/bolts but not sure. You have to have the rear doors open to remove it

Hoe do you change a brake light on a 2001 volkswagen beetle?


IT'S A BIT MORE COMPLICATED THAN ABOVE.
TO REMOVE BRAKE LIGHT HOUSING YOU HAVE TO GO INTO THE TRUNK AND REMOVE AN OVAL PLASTIC COVER NEAR WHERE THE TAIL LIGHT IS. REACH IN AND FEEL FOR A KNOB (FEELS LIKE AN OUTDOOR SPIGOT KNOB). TURN IT UNTIL IT COMES OFF. REMOVE ENTIRE TAIL LIGHT CASING. YOU'LL BE ABLE TO COMPLETELY REMOVE THE HOUSING BY PUSHING FROM INSIDE OUT. DISCONNECT THE WIRE. CHANGE BULB, REVERSE PROCEDURE.
GOOD LUCK.

Mazda Millenia tail light bulb replacement


Problem has been solved. I very gently pulled on both ends of the lens assembly and it popped off. The white plastic pieces housed plastic attachment 'tabs'. They can snap right back in place once pulled out to put assembly back.
