Brake Lights

It may take a while, but eventually, the bulb in your brake lights will burn out. Thankfully, if you're up for a DIY challenge at home in Tawas City, it's an easy task to accomplish! You don't want to get in an accident or be pulled over on Iosco County roads, so you should get this service done as soon as possible.

Steps to Replace Your Vehicle's Brake Light

Here's how to replace a brake light bulb at home:

  1. Find the Proper Bulbs: Your first step will be learning what type of bulbs are required. Your owner's manual will tell you the proper bulb size and voltage for your particular vehicle.
  2. Remove Tail Light Housing: Next, it's time to remove the red lens cover with a Phillips-head screwdriver. When you've taken the lens cover off, simply remove the bad bulb.
  3. Replace Bulb: You should apply some dielectric grease to the end of the bulb before screwing it in, as this will help to prevent rust and corrosion. You'll also have an easier time removing the bulb when you need to replace it again in the future. After the new bulb is secured, screw the red lens cap back on, and you're all set to safely navigate Oscoda roads!
