Anybody have a picture? I have them on my 95 (don't think it has bulbs though), I didn't notice them on my 02 If nobody has a picture I guess I'll have to look at mine on wednesday. Either way I have to say no as I have only had to replace one brake light to date.

I borrowed this from Singscountry'* tech info artical about bulb replacement. Im talking about NUMBER 3. This bulb only illuminates the sides (flanks) of the rear light assembly.

As you can see, the Owner'* Manual doesn't even tell you that these bulbs exist, which does lead to confusion. Its my beliefe that a lot of owners (like me) didn't even know there were bulbs in this location.

I actually got a chance to look at my car tonight and it does have them. I don't think I even noticed them when I had to replace bulb #2

Yup - did mine. Both were out. I have paid attention to a lot of other Bonnies at night and there never seems to be a completely lighted Bonny out there!

Wow! I had no idea about that. I'm pretty sure mine are both burnt out, but i'll have to wait to check till I get my car back from the dealership.

yeah I would have never known my were blown but when i cleared my tails. it wasnt lighting up the whole tail light. so the 194 mark bulb was the problem, now it works great with an LED in there.

Yep, both of mine are burned out. If they burn out that frequently and i haven't had mine for this long im just leaving them alone for now. Why do they fail so frequently?

I'm not sure that it'* frequent as much as it is early that they burn out. I replaced mine over 2 years ago with the Sylvania Long Life bulbs, and they're still working.
