How to Replace a Brake Light: 3-Step Guide

Learn how to change light by following the directions below:

  1. Get the Correct Bulb for Your Vehicle: Make sure that you buy the correct OEM part for your make and model for the best fit. Brake lights are one of the most critical safety features on your vehicle, so a good fit is essential!
  2. Remove Tail Light Cover: After you’ve ordered an OEM replacement bulb, remove the color lens cover and old bulb with a screwdriver.
  3. Replace the Brake-Light Bulb: Apply dielectric grease to the end of the new brake light before installation to prevent corrosion and rust. Put the new bulb in place and reattach the tail light housing cover.

Why You Should Routinely Check Your Brake Lights

Tail lights are an essential part of driving in Belcourt and beyond. Stay safe on the road and avoid getting a ticket by routinely checking your brake lights for signs of malfunctioning.
