Put the tailgate down, and on Sid there is 2 torq screws. Take them out, and gently prey the plastic housing. The are two srews that go into a holding clip. Just pull the whol assembly out, and it should be easy to se from there.(don't worry, it will sound awful when pulling it out, but it should be fine) The bulbs are 1/2 turn in, and you should be on your way.....

To replace the brake light switch on a 1995 GMC Sierra 1500, the steering wheel will have to be dismantled until the brake light switch is reached. The switch is changed by unplugging it and plugging in a new one. There are screws holding the switch in place.

If the parking brake pedal on your 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 is stuck to the floor, you might have broken the parking brake cable. Remove the rear tires to see if the cable is still attached and replace it as needed.

It is on a bracket above the brake pedal. It reads off of the brake pedal.

2011 Dodge Ram 1500 brake light bulb replacement: Purchase the correct replacement brake light bulb(s) first, before disassembling the vehicle. See sources and related links below for replacement brake light bulb information. Then consult your owner's manual for the replacement procedure. As simple as it sounds, the owner's manual is the best place to start for brake light bulb replacement instructions and illustrations. You may want to consider replacing both left and right at the same time in order to keep brightness and color equal (optional).

If you are talking about the tail light the lens is not a separate part of the lamp assy. Replace the complete assy by removing the two screws on the outside and unpluging the lamp socket.

My 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 As just shy of 78,000 miles on it with the original brakes I will be putting new brake pads and rotors in today

If the truck has disc brakes on the rear then the park brake shoes are located inside the rear rotors. You have to remove the brake calipers, pads and rotors to access them

Worn brake pads can cause the brake light to blink on the dash in a 1993 GMC Sierra 1500. This can also be caused by a faulty light.

I have a 2011 Dodge Ram With Camper Shell. The 3rd brake light will wok but it never goes completely out. The 3rd light remains on very dim. Check voltage with brake pedal NOT pressed and you have around 9 or 10 Volts remaining on thus connection point. Any idea why and how to wire the 3rd brake light on this vehicle./
