I just changed out the center brake light bulbs that display in the rear window. It was quite easy. First, you need to pull down the carpet covering the underside in the trunk. It has 5 or 6 plastic "snap in's." It's helpful to use a flathead scewdriver to pop them out. * Note: Don't try to pull them out of the carpet. Just pull them out of the metal with the carpet. There are 3 or 4 facing you as you look in the trunk, and 2 underneath one locatated on the right and left.

Once the carpet is down, you may need a flashlight to see, look under where the brake light is, and you should see a grey plastic housing about 3/4" wide x 3-4" long with wires in it. Just pull on it and it will come out. Replace the bad bulb(s), and then reverse your steps to put it back together.

How do you change the brake light in a 2000 Lincoln Continental?

Brake LightInside the trunk, remove rubber gasket from the plastic latch cover. Pull off the latch cover and then pull off carpet lining from the trunk walls. There will be 4 nuts holding the brake light assembly in place, unscrew only the four exposed ones! Neglect the ones inside the holes in the trunk wall, those have nothing to do w/ the brake light assembly. Slowly remove the assembly and twist the defected bulb housing counter-clockwise and pull off the faulty bulb. This procedure for removal is ineffective.. It does not show how the red exterior lense can be remove to expose the light brake socket for removal of the lamp.You cannot twis the bulb assembly and pull in a Lincoln Continental 2000.The access to the light bulb is to remove the exterior lense. Perhaps a refinement on how to will many on how to replace brake lighs.
