    Auto mechanic Mark Boudreau discusses how to determine which car tail light bulb to replace on your car.

    Mark Boudreau: Hi, my name is Mark Boudreau from Spectrum Auto Painting and Collision Center. Today, I am showing you how to change a headlamp and tail lamp in your car. Right now, we are going to determine what tail lamp might need to be replaced, identifying bulbs and their functions. Let us start with looking at what tail light might need to be replaced; sometimes it helps, if you have someone else to assist you in this. So a helper, could we have breaks please? You see one break light, none on the left, our left break light is what needs replacement. Now let us check and identify the other lights while we are at it. Helper, could we have left turn signal here, right turn signal, park lights, which are your driving lights and reverse, which we can see here, great, thank you very much. As we can see the only light that needs replacement is this left tail light. Next, I am going to show you how to access the tail light and the bulb.
