The tutorial was helpful for removing screws and assembly. However, the title is How to replace Brake Light Bulb and refers to brake light all the way through. In my Hyundai Elantra 2013 the orange socket is the turn signal and the bulb is amber. The brake light socket is gray and about 4 inches to the left. Whoops. glad I had a friend helping out Nora Walnut Creek CA
