Renault Megane 03 Brake Light Bulbs - waynelod
Hi.

I am new to this forum - so please bear with me. I have a new shaped Megane from 2003. Both the back brake light bulbs have gone (two side ones, not the one at the top back). It says in the manual to remove 2 bolts at the side whilst the boot is open. These are weird star shaped things and it appears a special tool is required.

Please help before I get stopped by the feds for no brake lights - I have the bulbs in my hand raring to go.

Many thanks

They should be white or yellow plastic three pronged star items

The special tool is your fingers. They are designed to be undone by hand

The rear bulbs are the easy ones to replace...

OK thank you

Mine are actually black (I have a new shape Megane Privilege 1.9dcI if that makes a difference ?) They look to be fixed to a black panel - and have a star stype female drive in them. Weird. Ive looked and still cannot see anything yellow or white

Im going nutty I think ?

sounds like a Torx bolt. You need a screwdriver with changeable bits, eg :

That's a bit off isn't it? Needing a torx screqdriver just to change your rear bulbs?

Nope - tried and its no good

Ive tried a torx drive in there - will not turn

Ive even put a pliers on the outside three prong affair and it just twists. The top one appears to be attached to the panel and will not turn, the other is under a 50mm plastic bung at the side - similar problem

This is crazy - I will have to go to Renault on Monday just to change two brake bulbs.

The front ones are supposed to be fiddly - and I changed a front indicator bulb without a problem :(

Reading the original post again, are you sure that it's the bulbs that are blown? It is very unusual to have both bulbs blow at the same time. I suspect an electrical fault may be the problem.

Hi

One went last week, so I went and bought two new bulbs. The second went Friday evening - as my neighbour is very informative about these things, such as tyres, indicators etc. I dont THINK its an electrical problem - but could be I guess. I am going to enrole on a course in September to learn how to change Megane brake light bulbs - sheesh !
