Here's what I did to replace the brake light assembly for the rear passenger side (this would apply to the drive side as well, but not the brake light on the spoiler) on my 2005 Legacy Sedan:
1. Open trunk 2. Pull away the interior liner/paneling around the light. I believe you can remove a few of the black screw/clamps to do this. I just pulled mine out, which works, but is prob not optimal. Take note of how it all sits in as your pulling it out to avoid headaches when putting the paneling back in. 3. Pull off the brake light wiring clamps/screws. Mine had a few white screw/clamps holding part of the wiring to screws on the assembly. These come out easily by applying low pressure and pulling them off. 4. Un-clamp the main (white) brake light clamp. On the top of the clamp, on the side that is the wire coming in (left side for passenger assembly), you apply pressure on the rectangular part of the plastic which releases the clamp, and pull off. I fiddled for this for a bit. You don't need a screw driver or anything, just apply downward pressure on the top of the clamp, on the rectangular portion, on the side that will pull away. 5. Look at your new brake light assembly. You will see 4 screws coming out that have no nuts. These are the nuts (the only ones) you need to remove from the old assembly. I used a socket wrench but pliers would suffice. 6. BE CAREFUL not to drop one of the nuts when getting near the end of the screw. Dropping one and losing it in no-man's land could require a trip back to the store! 7. Once all 4 are removed, gently pull and wiggle from the outside. You can also push and wiggle from the inside. This takes out the assembly. 8. Insert new assembly. The one white screw that extends out from the car will fit into place with the assembly as it gets in. 9. Put the nuts back on and tighten. You will have to do a few rounds of this as the assembly gets tighter in. Don't move on until you have re-checked all nuts and they are snug. 10. Clamp on main light wiring 11. Put paneling back on 12. Check to see if works 13. Gaze at your amazing repair work for a minute and confidently proceed with your day knowing you just saved $100!
This is a simple bulb replacement.Simply pop off the access cover(if you need to) then twist the bulb in a counter-clockwise motion to remove it.Install is opposite of removal.I hope I could help, rate me accordingly, Thanks.
The rear spoiler and both rear lights should come on with the car off and brake applied, but no other lights should,The Only lights that should work on any vehicle when it's turned off is The headlights,brake lights,and hazzard light..
This is the Spoiler Dude. The spoiler light is attached with screws to the spoiler. You must remove the screws and then the spoiler light will come away from the spoiler. Clip the two wires ( Black & Red ). Attached the new spoiler light ( I can get that for you) with a sleeve. Test the new light with the brake pedal depressed. Screw in the new light and that is it. If you have any questions. Call Spoiler Dude Paul 719-661-8600 firstname.lastname@example.org
regarding chevy equinox spoiler there are three 10mm bolts one on each end and one in the middle then there are three pins in the middle that snap in. these are very difficult to release without breaking them. If they break use a two part adhesive sparingly to hold the spoiler down or it will hit when you open the hatch.
The best way to wire a third brake light is to run the wire directly from the brake light switch on the side of the steering colum to the light. You will need a test light to find out what wire lights up when you push the brake pedal. Then you can splice into it when you run your wire to the rear light.
Unfortunately, these are not very simple. If you have a factory high mount brake light-meaning not one in a spoiler, you have to remove the rear seats, the rear parcel shelf and then the 3rd brake light. the 3rd brake light I believe is an LED setup which get replaced as an assembly which inserts into the housing. If you need further guidance let me know.
