My 2004 CRV's brake light went out. It's the light that lights up when you press on the brake.

I just can't tell from the diagram which one to replace. The second or third one down?

Is it the 7443 or 168 type bulb?

Another, it look from outside that I might have 5 bulbs.

1 reverse.
1 turn light.
2 driving red light. These two works

1 brake light?

The 7443 bulb is fitted to Japan-built Vs. A different bulb number was used on UK-built Vs.

I will say the 7443 on ours was the High Stop Brake light. Ours was dead and it had the numbers on it so I could find the replacement for it. Ours was Canadian and Japan assembly. Sometimes you have to take out the bulbs and they have a number on them to identify them.

Almost any auto parts website will be able to tell you which bulb your car uses.
My 2007 uses a 7443 dual filament bulb.
Also should be able to compare the other side with the brakes depressed
This will tell you which bulb needs replacing.

Note: On Japan built vehicles, there are only a few items that need to be careful about
the part when replacing. Rack and pinion, abs sensors, etc
Don't believe it makes a difference on the exterior lights??

The lamps in the rear light housings are different. This has caught-out many Gen2 owners over the years.

When you go to the auto parts store or order on line, give your information on the year, make and model
And then the name of the part. Brake light bulb. Or whatever.
Do not just buy parts hoping it is the right one

I happened to be at a dealership many years back and got a bulb from them. It turned out to be the wrong one. Even their parts guys get confused.

I agree, bulb for UK CrV is different from Japan CrV. They look like this:

146771
146772


I can’t remember which one is which. I’ve got one vehicle with each type.

Thanks everyone. Everything went well. It was the 7443 for me (looks like the second one above).
My CRV was Japan built.

You just need one flat and one Philip screw drivers (a 8mm socket will also work). There are two screws that you to take out. The whole process takes about 5 minutes. Be sure to wear rubber gloves so you dont damage the new bulb.

This is what I thought as well since I had to replace mine since finding it was a CDN because of the speedometer was Kilo with miles below it.
