Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks!

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace a tail light bulb and how to know if your tail light bulb is out. There is a way that most vehicles will actually alert you that you have a bulb out.

When you turn on your turn signal, this is the typical speed and sound that you hear. This is not. It's a lot faster, it's rapidly blinking, and when you come back here and look, you can see that nothing's happening. When we put the emergency flashes on, still nothing happens on that side. Brake light: nothing. This means you need to replace your brake light bulb.

We're just going to remove these three thumb screws and pull the tail light out. Twist out the socket and pull your bulb free. Take your new bulb, push it into place, and then twist the socket back into place. Turn clockwise to lock it in.

Just push those studs back through and replace the three thumb screws. Now, just test out the turn signal. You can see it works.

Test out the breaks, all set. When you go in here there is normal turn signal sound and speed. You're all set.
