Right rear turn signal bulb out
 
Got an error message on the EVIC today that my right rear turn signal bulb was out. Does anyone know the replacement model number and can I get it at a local napa or similar? Also, any instructions on how to replace? Ie removing brake light cover etc.

I believe the manual has all the bulbs listed as well as removal instructions. Hopefully the availability for that bulb is better than the front turn signal bulbs. Dealer had to order it, but didn't charge me.

I had the same issue over the summer (same light also). Replacement is very easy and took me at most 10 minutes.

Are there some directions as to taking off the plastic cover? I'm kinda an idiot when it comes to that stuff. I usually break things.

Remove rear brake light fixture- twist the bulb socket, remove from housing. Replace bulb. Reassemble.


Bulb 3057 for main/turn/brake bulb. Surprised its out already. Check the manual for other bulbs and how to remove the fixture in more detail.

Just had the same; message bulb out, fast repeater but front bulb still blinked (fast). Had this for 3 days, only in the morning. In the evening no problem. Yesterday a 12000 km service but they found no errors. Still replaced the bulb to be sure. No new prblems yet.

funny to see this thread pop up - mine just went out too - right rear.

Car has been on the road 15k miles, 10 months. Seems young to be burning out bulbs.
