Re: REAR BRAKE LIGHT
Open your trunk and remove the carpet from behind the brake lights, you should be able to access the brake light from there. If not just remove those screws/bolts and the brake light assembly will pop right out.

The easiest way is to open back trunk open any coverings or carpet pull it back to gain access to the bulb socket once you see the socket twist it counter clock wise and remove remove the bulb and replace with new one once installed have someone step on your brake pedal to confirm working then put upholstery back and you =have completed changing your brake light bulb.
Remove the carpeted panel inside the right rear trunk area. Remove the 3 nuts that hold the light assembly in place. Then carefully remove the light assembly from the outside of the car. Unscrew the bulb assembly with a 1/4 turn. Remove
Was able to complete this job successfully: It's a little tricky to do without pictures, but I don't have any available right now.
Access the trunk
Remove the material covering the light. You'll need to remove the black pegs by lifting the centre part. A flathead screw-driver will help. There are 2 to remove -- one directly behind the brake light and another at the top of the trunk.
Pull back the material to expose the brake light wiring and the metal frame of the car.
There are 2 nuts / screws to remove near the entrance of the trunk. Both are about 4 inches apart and hold the tail light's cover in place. Remove both.
Using a bit of force, you will be able to pull off the entire tail light from the frame of the car. This is done on the exterior of the car.
Rotate the problematic light from it's housing (it should come off with ease) and pull it out of the socket. Brake light and indicator are a 3057K bulb.
If you open the trunk and remove the rear trunk trim, at the tail light area, you will see the fasteners that hold the tail light in position. Remove the fasteners and the tail light will come out, you can replace the bulb that is defective.
hi from uk to change the brake light bulb/s on the getz is easy just open rear hatch then you will see 3x pozi drive screws alongside each lamp assy that screw /secure the lamp to body at the lower endof drain channel? remove screws and lift away lamp from body each bulb is accessable then now would be a good opportunity to clean the area at rear of lamp ? then reassemble is reverse as above my wife has one of these cars and has been absalutely trouble free for past 5yrs but it does get lots of tlc/servicing by myself hope the instructions are ok to follow?
