I have had my B-Max almost a month (2013 plate 1.6 Powershift Titanium) and just noticed that the drivers side rear brake lamp is out. I looked at the owner's manual, then checked the boot to remove 'the trim' to access the "electrical connecter" & the "wing nut" and my B-Max doesn't have the trim like the images shown. I can't find anything that remotely looks like it that can be removed ?? Anybody shed any light on this issue ? [img]smileys/smiley5.gif[/img]

I am answering my own question as I have now replaced my blown bulb. The hardest part was where the trim was to get access to the bulb holder, and I bumped into an old friend of mine who is a Ford technician. He knew where the trim was, so after that things were relativly straight forward. >

Ford B-Max_Changing a rear brake light or indicator bulb


The printed AND the PDF version of the B-Max owner's
manual are wrong and bear no resemblance to how to change the blown bulb. [ Page
165 on the PDF version ] Even the image of the trim is completely wrong. Here are
the step by step instructions.


Find the section of the interior trim in the boot that is
at the same height as the rear light cluster. It is small, only about 5 inches
by 5 inches, and has a faint X to insert your finger and PULL it away from the
rear of the car towards the seats.


Reach in to locate the (long) plastic WING NUT; this was
very tight on my B-Max, but I did manage to release it. Unscrew the long wing
nut completely, and be careful as the complete light cluster comes away from
the car !!



Pull out the white electrical connecter (the plug), and
the light cluster is free.


Turn the light cluster upside down; and you have to
remove the 4 pozi-drive / cross head screws to remove the bulb holder.


Replace the blown bulb, and reverse the above steps to
replace the light cluster. Job done !!

SuperSinky,

Is there any chance of posting a photo; as the only thing I think I can see is on a rearward facing area of the 'Furry' trim on the side of the boot? I would like to be sure before I go ripping the trim apart.

Just realised that it should say '... Forward facing area of ...'.

Must remember to see what it is, and not what it should be!

Just changed my stop/tail bulb 2.22 from Ford Dealer .The flap is there but you need a Stanley Knife to separate the flap from the main trim .The wing nut needed Mole Grips to start it of .All OK after that follow hand-book (It would an easy job for a Gynaecologist)

Why would they need to update rhe manual, they're only interested in selling cars.

If they ever do update the manual, perhaps they could also inxlude some realiatic mpg figures.

LoL
Just been trying to work out how to change the brake light bulb. I was telling my wife that the handbook made no sense at all. She replied
" that sounds like the trouble you had changing the headlamp bulb on the Focus !! ". I used to work for Ford and quite frankly appalled by the fact that the whole rear lamp cluster has to be removed to change a bulb.

A big thankyou to Supersinky for posting the resolution to this problem.
