This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 2nd generation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Honda Fit or Honda Jazz vehicles in replacing any of the bulbs in the tail light assemblies.

Owners of previous generation 2001-2008 Fit or Jazz vehicles, or similar Honda Global Small Car vehicles such as the Airwave, Partner, Mobilio, Freed, Logo, City, and Aria may also find this guide to be useful.

The tail light assembly of a Honda Fit or Jazz contains the following light bulbs with their corresponding Sylvania part numbers: brake (stop) light bulb # 7443, reverse (back up) light bulb # 921 and rear turn signal light bulb # 992 or 7440A.

Only a small flathead screwdriver is needed to replace any of the bulbs in the tail light assembly of a Honda Fit or Jazz.

To access any of the tail light bulbs, you'll need to remove the plastic access panel located inside the cargo bay.

Insert a small flathead screwdriver into the notch in the panel and carefully pry it open.

Reverse (Back Up) Bulb
The turn signal light bulb is located near the top of the tail light assembly and closest to the outside of the vehicle.

Remove it by rotating the bulb's socket 1/4 turn counter clockwise and pulling it straight out from the tail light.

To remove the bulb from the socket, pull it straight out.

If you have trouble removing it, try gently wiggling the bulb while pulling.

The reverse or "back up" light bulb is also at the top of the tail light assembly but located slightly closer to the center of the vehicle.

The brake light or "stop lamp" bulb is located at the bottom of the tail light assembly.

To remove either bulb, rotate the socket 1/4 turn counter clockwise, pull the socket out of the assembly, and pull the bulb straight out from the socket.

Testing Hazards / Turn Signal
Replace the burnt out bulb(s) with a new # 7443 brake light bulb, # 921 reverse light bulb, or # 992 or 7440A rear turn signal light bulb.

Push the new bulb straight into the socket, insert the socket into the tail light assembly and rotate it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it in place.

Test the new tail light bulb(s) by having someone press on the brakes, put the car in reverse (with the brakes applied) and activate the hazard signals or turn signals.
