Default How do I replace brake tail light bulb?

Tried googling but end up with 10000 led/third brake light bulb matches.

All i wanna do is replace my burned brake light. I believe its a 7443 bulb.

What do I do?'

thanks

check you're owner's manual?

never had to do it since mine have never burn out, but i imagine you open the hatch, pop over that little cover on the inside of the corner behind the taillight and twist the dead bulb out, and replace it.

it is almost as hard as...changing a lightbulb.

Owners manual tells you how, but in case thats to simple or hard, here you go.

1) Pop the rear hatch
2) In the corner where the back of the tail lights are you see 2 covers with plastic tabs. Pull those tabs out and the entire panel comes out. (yes the fuzzy things)
3) Twist and pull the correct socket that corresponds with that in which is burnt out.
4) Reassemble the same way you put it together.

I believe he's talking about the trunk/3rd brake light

EDIT: my bad, you're right -.-
