How to Change a Brake Light

Vehicle Brake Lights

Anytime you slow or stop your vehicle, your brake lights turn on. So it’s not that surprising when light bulbs burn out from time to time. Whether you are going to replace the brake light at home or have our trusted service center at INFINITI of Clarendon Hills handle the task, it’s essential to take care of it as soon as you can. Learn more about how to replace a brake light in our handy guide below!

Steps to Replacing a Brake Light

If you are interested in learning how to replace a brake light, follow the simple steps below:

  • Purchase the Correct Bulbs: First, find and purchase the bulbs that will fit your vehicle. Refer to your owner’s manual for the correct bulb size and voltage for your specific INFINITI vehicle.
  • Remove Tail Light Housing: With the new bulb ready to go, remove the colored lens that hides the brake light bulbs. This can be done with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Once the cover is out of the way, go ahead and remove the bulb.
  • Replace the Bulb: Before installing the new brake-light bulb, apply a bit of dielectric grease to the end to prevent corrosion and rust. This will also make it easier to remove the bad bulb when it’s time to change it again. Put the new bulb in place, reattach the taillight housing, and you’re all set to drive safely around the Downers Grove area.

The Importance of Checking Your Tail Lights

Your taillights signal to other drivers that you’re going to make a turn, prepare to stop, have stopped, or you’re reversing. Without functioning tail lights, other drivers won’t know what you’re going to do next. This can also lead to getting a ticket. Stay safe on the roads and make sure your tail lights are working properly.
