Does anyone have the steps on how to replace the brake light bulb in an XC90? I popped open the compartment where the battery was, but couldn't find anywhere on the sides to get to the brake lights.

See the triangle shaped carpeted foam to the side of the batter compartment? remove them (which ever side you want the globe out of), then there should be a tab for the carpeted panel behing the taillights, remove that and you should be able to reach the globe holders.

Awesome! I lifted up the back cover, lifted out the carpeted triangle, pulled up and out on the black tab to remove the carpeted piece, then removed two long 10mm bolts that screwed into the taillight assembly. There are two rubber grommets on the outside of the taillight housing, so I had to work the taillight assembly off of them, but it worked like a champ. Thanks!!!

My xc90 has a 3rd seat whose seat belt holder is attached to the taillight assembly. Do I need to remove seat belt holder also? Do the 10 mm bolts have covers/caps?

Oh yeh forgot about the 10mm bolts, oops...


Not sure what you mean by seat belt holder, most xc90s in Aus are 7 seat and don't have any seatbelt stuff in the way.

You do not need to remove the seat belt holder - it just happens to be bolted in the same area but is in no way attached to the taillight assembly. The two 10mm bolts you need to remove are actually hexagonal studs about 4-5" long - a 10mm socket fits over the end of them to loosen/tighten. They do not have any sort of cover or cap - just look in there and you'll see the studs protruding.
