Happy Driving.I just change mine today 1/3/05.
I did this today 7/14/10. The only thing that was confusing for me was removing the whole casing. You have to jiggle it a little to manuever it off because the outside part is hooked on.
Brake and parking lights? Are you sure, the two aren't interconnected. Maybe it's just the brake light. If so, sounds like a bad brake light switch. If you step on the brakes and the brake and parking (sometimes called running lights) lights come on it sounds like you have a real problem. Suggest you have it checked right away.
