How to Change a Brake Light

Brake Lights

Your brake lights turn on whenever you press your foot on the brake pedal — at least until the filament burns out! If you find that one of your taillights isn’t working as it should, it’s time to schedule service or learn how to change a brake light at home. Don’t have time to make it into our Warwick service center? Find out how to replace a brake light in just a few simple steps below.

Steps to Replace Your Vehicle’s Brake Light

Replacing the brake light on a Mercedes-Benz doesn’t require any special skills or training. Here’s exactly what you need to do to get the job done today:

  • Find the Correct Bulbs: Your owner’s manual will include guidelines. Find out what kind of brake light you need to purchase, and find what you need at our Warwick parts department.
  • Remove Tail Light Housing: You can remove the colored lens that protects your brake light by using a phillips-head screwdriver to pry it off! However, you should be very careful not to scratch the paint on your Mercedes-Benz! Wrap the end of the screwdriver in tape to reduce the risk.
  • Replace the Bulb: The only other thing you’ll need to change the brake light is a little bit of dielectric grease, which will help prevent corrosion and rust. Once you have it, just unscrew the old bulb, apply a little grease to the end of the new one, and turn it into place!

Our parts department is easy to reach from East Greenwich or Cranston, so you won’t have to go far to find exactly what you need.

What’s the Importance of Checking Your Taillights?

Your taillights aren’t just there for your benefit. They’re there to give other drivers an idea of your intentions, and to let them know that it’s time to slow down! Without working brake lights, you run a much greater risk of being rear-ended or causing an accident. Of course, there’s one more reason to stay on top of your brake lights! Busted or burnt-out taillights are easy to catch, and they’re a common source of tickets for drivers from Providence to North Attleboro, so learning how to change one at home can also help to save you money.
