you have to open the trunk and behind the carpet you have to pull off, and then unscrew the bolt and push in the sides to open and then you will see a light bulb and then replace it.

To change the brake lights on a 1997 Volkswagen Polo first locate the brake light housings in the trunk. Remove the plastic covers and unlock the bulbs. Remove the bulbs and install the new brake lights.

what do you have to do to change the center brake light

This is a light indicating that the front brake pads are low. There is a sensor on them that causes a light to come on when they get to a certain point. You have time but I certainly would not wait too long.

An ABS light on the 2002 Volkswagen Polo refers to the assisted brake system. When the light shines it means there is something currently wrong with the brake system and should be serviced.

Check bulbs, fuse, brake light sensors.

Two things, one the brake light switch needs to be replaced, it sits on top of the brake pedal. There is a recall for this switch for free, called an N4 recall. If you have not had this done then do so. The last thing thing is you have some bulbs out. They are single filament bulbs.

The brake light switch is found behind the 1998 VW Beetles brake pedal. Reach it by removing the lower dash console to gain access to the nut holding the switch in place. Remove the nut then then the switch.

My 2003 Jetta brake light switch had a re-call on it, you should check into that. It goes out about twice a year. I know because I've had to walk home because it woulndn't come out of park

I had that problem today. My jetta is 2001, but there was a recall last year to change the brake switch or something because they're all connected. I was braking, but my brake light wasn't lighting up because there was some kind of disconnect. Hope this helps.

The Chevrolet Colorado brake light switch is quite simple to change. The brake light switch simply plugs in and out.

The epc light in your VW Jetta could be on for many reasons. Your VW Jetta may need a new brake light or it could need an O2 sensor. The best thing to do is take it to a mechanic so they can properly diagnose the problem.
