email meet and I will send you a PDF showing and explaining exactly how. I needed a direct anwswer so this is it now that I just finished replacing my 1993 LS400 brake light. 1. open trunk 2. gently pull back the carpet - like covering where the light is located and it will pull off and fold it back by weighting it down or having a friend hold it 3. look for two bolt head to the rear side which could attach the rear light and two other nuts that are all the same size which appear to be attachments to the rear light back portion (one may be hidden under a popped out piece of metal) 4. after removing these 2 nuts and bolts grab the screw sticking out at the top and pop out the top one by pushing back and the plastic surround over the rear light on the top of it should pull off gently and straight back 5. this opens up the light so you can gently wedge the top of the light with a flat head screw driver toward you and it will cause it to pop out so you can lift the entire rear light out 6. turn the bulb holders counter clockwise about a 1/4 turn to pull the bulb out 7. replace bulb by pushing down gently and turning it out 8. install new bulbs - do all three of the them just because this job is not worth doing again unless absolutely necessary 9. reverse your steps and if you don't have the snaps chew some bubble gum to hold it in place temporarily (just a joke but I might do it rather than going to buy a broken snap at the Lexus dealer) Say a prayer for those who follow in your path to unlock the secrets of how Lexus can make a good product and still force the average person to spend money just changing a light bulb - but then you aren't average if you accomplished this ... you're so thrifty and determined to crack the secret codes of the Lexus laws that you are now a member of the select group of owners who can and do change light bulbs ... Timothy for John (Please consider a donation to a charity instead of the Lexus dealer so I now this advice was worth giving to you and the world is not made up of car makers who immitate this kind of manufactured work) Amen....

Yes you can just replace the headlight bulbs. First you have to take out the cover by the battery. Then unscrew the cover by the radiator and simply lift it up to take it off. The light bulbs are visible at this time.

To replace the brake light bulbs on a VW Polo, pull away the carpeting in the trunk, unscrew the bolt holding the lights on, and disconnect the wiring. Replace the bulbs, put the wiring and bolts back, then replace the carpeting.

The center brake light bulbs can be replaced by lifting up on the rear light assembly and pulling towards the front of the car.

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.
