Changing Brake Lights

I pulled apart the brake light assembly with 2 friends and none of us could figure out how to get the replacement bulbs in and there is nothing in the manual. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thx!

3rd light has non replaceable bulbs (circuit board). You have replace the unit. If you mean the regular taillights then check this thread-

Twist the house?

We tried that but maybe didn't use enough brute strength. I'll try it again. Thx!

Once you get the light housing off, you should be able to turn the wiring harnesses/bulb covers counter-clockwise and then pull them up out of the assembly housing. Then pop the old bulb out, new one in, and re-tighten clockwise to seal the housing. It's been a while since I changed mine, but pretty sure that's all there is to it...shouldn't be any brute strength involved - you'll break stuff then! haha. good luck.
