While they may seem forgettable during the drive, your brake lights can be pretty important for your safety. If they ever go out, the vehicles behind you have a greater potential to run into you, especially in the dark, not to mention the possibility of getting pulled over if a police officer see’s your lack of brake lights. Thankfully, Ford OEM brake lights are quality lights you can use to replace your old ones.
If your brake light warning is on, no need to panic. You can replace them yourself, if you want. Knowing the year, make, and model of your vehicle will help you narrow down what Ford OEM lightbulb is the right fit for your vehicle.
When replacing the brake lights, you’ll need to find the mounting bolts for the break light lens. Once you have the bolts off, you will need to pop off the tail light. You may have a good amount of resistance when removing the tail light, just remember to be firm, but gentle, as you don’t want to break any of the pegs holding the lens in. Be sure to pull straight out in order to not damage any of the pegs as well.
Next, you’ll need to take out the old bulb and replace it with the new. After you do so, make sure there aren’t any wires sticking out, then replace the lens and the bolts. Make sure you tighten the bolts to have them sit securely in the mounting holes in order to ensure your brake light lens doesn’t fall off.
After you are finished, be sure to check and make sure that everything is working correctly.
