Find the Correct Bulbs: Check your owner’s manual to find your vehicle’s correct bulb size and voltage.
Remove Tail Light Housing: You can remove the colored lens that covers your brake lights when you have the replacement bulb. You will need a Phillips-head screwdriver to open it up.

Your tail lights are a form of communication to other Hazlet drivers. They let them know when youmake a stop, go in reverse, put your hazard lights on, or signal to turn. Without your tail lights lighting up, another driver cannot tell what you will do next, creating a dangerous situation.
Not to mention that besides safety, it is illegal to drive with burnt-out tail lights; you can be issued a ticket. Therefore, the importance of checking your tail lights helps abide by the law and keep you and your family safe.
