Stop light bulb replacement

How in the world do you replace this bulb? I drove by the dealership yesterday. He told me to remove to nuts to get to the bulbs. I removed those from the truck next to the lights and nothing seemed to be able to open!

I was having the same issues too. I was taking out the bolts but it appeared as thought the whole system was held by something else. Just try to carefully yank it out after taking out these two nuts. Use the screws as your guide.

Is the replacement of the brake light bulb under warranty for a 07 versa hatchbacK?


this may or may not be you can call your local dealership and ask. if not then it's only a couple dollars at the part store and a verry easy fix. just pull the carpet down in the trunk behind the tail light and remove the small 10mm nuts the light will now pull out and you can replace the bulb. verry simple

Cannot remove socket from "high" mount brake light


It has melted. Having worked at a dealer I have seen this before. Dealerships deal with problems like this often .They will know the correct bulb to put back in to keep from melting the housing.

Tail light in a volkswagon beetle?


There are two access panels on either side of your trunk. You need to remove the panel and inside you will find a small plastic 3 point finger nut that you will have to loosen to allow the light assembly to be removed - be careful not too loose the plastic nut!. You can then replace the bulb(s) you need.

Replace the tail light bulbs in 2004 infiniti g 35 coup


tail light bulbs are replaced by removing the tail light housings. The housings are accessed by removing the nuts, the nuts are secured behind the inner trunk liner inside the trunk. Remove fasteners holding liner in place, remove 3 nuts for each housing(i believe it's 3 nuts if my memory serves me right), remove housing and replace bulbs
