How to Change a Brake Light

Vehicle Brake Lights

Brake lights are one of the most vital pieces of equipment on your vehicle. When they run out, they jeopardize your safety and constitute a traffic violation, so Ocean drivers should know the simple steps for changing their brake light. Acura of Ocean covers how to replace a brake light below!

How to Replace a Brake Light: Finding the Right Light

Many Red Bank drivers wanting to know how to replace a brake light ask about finding the correct bulb. There are a few ways to assure you’re replacing your light with the proper one:

  • Owner’s Manual: As with many other parts issues, your owner’s manual provides you with all the information you need about bulb size and voltage in the section devoted to lights.
  • Consult a Parts Center: If you have any uncertainty, all Freehold drivers can contact a dedicated parts center for expert information on their brake lights. We’re also able to order parts in case you can’t find what you need!

How to Change a Brake Light: Simple Instructions

Once you have the right light, knowing how to change a brake light just means following a few simple steps. Make sure to have a Phillips-head screwdriver:

  • Remove Light Housing: With the screwdriver, take out the colored lens that guards your brake light and take the faulty light out.
  • Apply Grease: How many Asbury Park drivers does it take to screw in a light bulb? Just one — but a little bit of dielectric grease comes in handy. Place it at the end of the bulb to prevent corrosion and make it easier to remove.
  • Replace Bulb and Re-Attach Housing: Once the bulb is in place, just put back on the housing and you’re safe to drive again.
