Why would I need to replace my tail light assembly?
Your vehicles brake light or tail light assembly, house the the lights which function as your tail light, brake light and turn signal light.
Traditionally these have used a standard incandescent bulb. Typically the only time these assemblies need to be replaced is if they are damaged.
One exception is on newer vehicles. Newer vehicles may use non-serviceable (non-replaceable) LEDs. When one or more of these LEDs stops working, the entire assembly must be replaced.
When this happens you can experience several things:
- Cracked housing
- Condensation behind lens
- No lights (newer factory LED style)
