How to Change a Brake Light

When you need to slow down, stop, or reverse, your brake light plays a crucial role in notifying other drivers of your intentions. Since they are used so frequently, it is no surprise that the bulbs burn out from time to time. If you decide to take on the challenge of changing your brake light in your Henderson garage, the service experts at Jim Marsh Kia can guide you to a successful swap. We feel every driver in Boulder City should be able to change a brake light bulb for safety reasons and to avoid costly tickets. Read through our handy guide below to learn how to replace a brake light today and explore our service tips for all of your DIY maintenance needs!

Steps to Replace Your Vehicle’s Brake Light

If you want to ensure your Pahrump commute is worry-free, follow these steps to learn how to change a brake light:

  • Find the Correct Bulbs: The first step in learning how to replace a brake light is determining what type of bulb you need. Your owner’s manual is the best source to find the size and voltage bulb you need for your Kia.
  • Remove Tail Light Housing: Once you have located the proper bulb, you will need to remove the colored lens housing the brake light bulbs. You can take care of this with a Phillips-head screwdriver and some elbow grease! Once the cover is removed, unscrew the bad bulb.
  • Replace the Brake-Light Bulb: Before you jump into replacing the bulb, apply a bit of dielectric grease to the end. This will help to prevent corrosion and rust and can extend the life cycle of the bulb. Once the bulb is in place, reattach the taillight housing and look forward to safe navigation wherever your next journey takes you!

What’s the Importance of Checking Your Tailights?

If you think there’s no need to prioritize a brake light fix, you may not have all the facts. Brake lights are critical for traffic flow and are essential for communication with other motorists. If you need to suddenly stop, slow down, or reverse, functioning brake lights will safely tell the tale. Along with safe navigation, learning how to replace a brake light can save you from earning a costly ticket during your morning commute. Make the smart move and learn how to change a brake light with the auto specialists at Jim Marsh Kia today!
