This would be a lot easier if I knew what car you have, but in the absence of that information I will say that most late model vehicles have the blub mounted in a plastic receptacle that plugs into the lamp housing, hold the back of it press it firmly and twist it clockwise it should pop right out. Some cars have carpeting or plastic panels covering the lamp housing that you will have to remove to gain access.

To change the brake light bulb, first remove the brake light lens. Next, disconnect the wiring connector. Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the lens, and remove the bulb from the socket. Place the new bulb into the socket and put the socket back in the lens. Screw the lens back into place.

Remove screws on either end of light housing. Remove brake light. Remove bulb. Using a cloth, place new bulb in socket. Replace brake light. Attach screws. bulb cost approx. $2.00 for a two pack of bulbs, beats having the dealer do it and charge you an arm and a leg :)

If you can't get to the back of the light through the trunk, you have to remove the light to change the bulb from the rear.

Remove the Phillips screws holding the lens in place, remove the lens, push bulb into socket and rotate counter-clockwise, reverse procedure to install. There are three light bulbs when the brake light column is taken out. If just my brake light is out, which bulb needs to be replaced?

You have a brake light bulb in incorrectly or possibly an incorrect brake light bulb or a faulty brake light bulb socket.

Open the truck and remove the two fasteners (left or right side) that secure the bungee net. This will allow the carpet liner to be pulled forward to access the brake/running light bulb. Twist the bulb socket to remove the bulb.

Unlike the two standard brake light bulbs, which are generally changed from behind, a 'third' brake light is usually changed from the front. Locate the lens mounting screws and remove them; the bulb should then be revealed.

The "BRAKE BULB" light means that a brake bulb is not working and may require replacing.

Why not just remove the bad bulb and look see what model it is?

To replace the brake light bulb you need to remove the whole light assembly. Once removed the change is simple.

To replace the brake light first you need to remove the lens housing from the car. Next pull the entire bulb assembly, or housing, out of its hole. Remove the bad bulb, replace with the good bulb and place lens housing back into position. Secure the housing with the screws.

Lower the tailgate and the screws will be on the bedside. Remove the screws and pull the light bulb housing out. From there you should be able to see how to get the bulb out of the housing.
