How to Replace the Brake Light on a 2002 Hyundai Accent


The 2002 Hyundai Accent is the most compact car available in the Hyundai line for that model year. The base model is equipped with a 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine. The GS and GL models include a slightly larger, 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine. The 2002 Accent is available in two body styles, a 2-door hatchback and a 4-door sedan. Use an 1157 bulb to replace the brake light bulb in the event of a failure.
