Remove the gas filler door, this is held in place with four small visible screws. Remove the gas cap and put a crumpled up paper towel in the gas filler pipe to be sure no dirt can get in. Remove the rubber boot around the gas filler pipe by pushing down with your fingers, and then disconnect the drain hose on the underside. Detach visible cable harness restraint and move the wire harness to give you clearance. Using a small mechanics mirror on a stick and a bright light, look under the rear deck at the third light assembly via the open space you just created around the gas filler pipe area. You will see two 10mm nuts, one on either side of the third light assembly. Remove them and carefully remove the entire third light assembly. Note, there is a power cable quick connect for the third light that you will have to disconnect. Now remove the two Philips screws to access the three bulbs inside. Warning - Do not touch the new high intensity bulbs with your fingers as you insert them, use a paper towel, or they will self destruct in minutes once you apply power - fyi. Once you have carefully replaced the three bulbs, reverse the disassembly procedure. Plan two beers to disassemble, and a third to reassemble. Enjoy & good luck, Jay
Change brake light bulbs Just remove the rear license plate. You can change the backup lights and brake light easily.
It is possible that one of the bulbs is shorting out. Try replacing the brake light bulbs, if that doesn't work, troubleshoot the brake light switch.
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.
Possibly a bad brake light switch, or bad connection.
Remove the two screws that hold the lens on, remove the lens and change the bulbs.
The switch could be bad or the wire could be burned out.
Most likely the fuse is blown. Check that out. Or the switch on the brake pedal is shot if the fuse is good. Both of those good both bulbs may be burned out. Not likely though.
The daytime run lamps are your high beam bulbs with a module that cuts the amount of amperage that just dims the bulbs. Just change high beam bulb.
AnswerThe bulbs for the brake lights are usually separate from the normal tail light bulbs. Check and replace the brake bulbs first, and if they are still not working examine the fuses, switch and wiring.
The brake light bulbs ar removed from the rear of the light assy . Take it off of the body.
Change the turn signal flasher relay.
The light assy has to be removed and the bulbs removed from the back.
I assume you only need to change the bulbs. Go into the trunk and look up. You should see the wires leading to the mounting point for the third brake light, you candisconnect the connectors and then change the bulbs this way.
There are two screws in the tailgait jamb, just remove them and the lense comes right out exposing the bulbs.
If you are referring to the right and left ones, pull the carpeting away and you will find like 4 nuts that you remove and the whole assembly comes out to change the bulb or bulbs. The 3rd brake light in the rear window has two bulbs which you get to from the trunk.

Remove the lense from the car then you will find a holder with all the bulbs in. change which ever bulb
Likely to be the brake light switch on the pedal at fault if the bulbs and fuses are good and other lights work ok.
The brake lights are accessed through the rear hatch. Find the panel on the rear sides of the car. Pop out the panel and access the brake lights. Replace the bulbs.
First you need to determine the cause. It could be blown bulbs, blown fuse, out of adjustment brake light switch, bad brake light switch, damaged wiring, loose or bad grounds, etc.Most times, when your break lights are not working the bulbs need to be changed. You need to change the bulbs through the opening in the back of your trunk.
If the bulbs and fuses are fine, it must be your brake light switch attached to the arm on your brake pedal.
check your bulbs
Entire assembly should unbolt and slide out giving access to the bulbs
If you mean the brake light, you just have to change the bulb or bulbs.
