How to Change a Brake Light

Wrench and Radiator

You can rely on our Chandler service department to help you with all of your regular maintenance tasks and requirements, but what if you’d like to take care of things at home? Well, we’re just as happy to pass along DIY car care tips to our Phoenix area customers. If you’re wondering how to replace a brake light, we’re glad to say that it’s a simple, three-step process.

Step-by-Step: How to Replace a Brake Light

It only takes a moment to learn how to replace a brake light. Check your owner’s manual to identify the lights that you should use, pick up a new bulb at our parts department, and grab a phillips-head screwdriver. You’re ready to get started:

  • Remove the Reflective Housing: Use your phillips-head screwdriver to pry the colored lens off of the brake light, and unscrew the bad bulb.
  • Prep the New Bulb: If you’ve never learned how to replace a brake light from an expert, you might not know that it’s smart to apply a small amount of dielectric grease to the end of the new bulb.
  • Screw in the New Bulb: Once it’s prepped, you can simply screw the new bulb into place.

What’s the Importance of Checking Your Tail Lights?

Your brake lights aren’t just there for decoration. They inform other drivers of your intentions and let them know when it’s time to slow down. If your brake lights are broken, dim, or burnt out, your chance of getting rear-ended becomes much greater. Although safety is the most important reason to check your brake lights, we think it’s safe to say that no driver in Gilbert or Tempe enjoys being pulled over and ticketed. Learning how to replace a brake light can help you save, too!
