This is a very common question asked by Altezza/IS owners.

To change the rear bulbs, you need to remove the tail lamps from the car.

1. Open the boot
2. On the black plastic strip of each lamp, there are two plastic caps/covers.
3. Remove the caps.
4. Remove the two screws behind the caps.
5. Remove lamp assembly from the car.

In the attached image, the red highlights where the screws are located.

Hey team!

Sorry to drag up a old thread but is it possible to replace these bulbs with LED ones? I'm trying to switch my car to using LED bulbs

For brake lights, yes.

From memory you can replace any normal bulb with an LED so long as it has a built in load resistor or you wire in a warning delete so that you dont get fast blinking when you replace stock indicator bulbs with LEDS.

So yeah, you should be fine. I did it with my s15's tail lights and it did nothing other than what it was meant to :)

Cheers bro, any suggestions as to what LED bulb is a suitable replacement?
