Realy easy, Open your trunk. get yourself the appropriate Bulb at your local car part shop, Brake light are 2 bulbes in on and back up and flasher is a normal single bulb, anyway he or she should gives you the appropriate stuff. you'll need a screw driver and that's it. You have litlle panel behind the light assembly in the trunk. after to removing the light you have to turn the socket to get it out of the assembly, change the bulb, put everything together. check for rush, sometime the bulb is okay, it's just corrosion build up.

Rear deck stop light

the hyundai suggested method is by removing the back seat. the dealer will charge you around $100.
i have done it using an alternate method.
1. open the trunk
2. crawl in facing up
3. locate openings below the brake light
(the opening is offset from the bottom of the light and holder (very helpful of hyundai!!!)
4. remove the foam pieces if any.
5. remove the screws holding the cover in place. a magnetic philips screwdriver would be good.
6. unscrew the light using the tab at the bottom of the holder
7. push it up and into the passenger compartment.
8. the entire assembly should come out from inside the compartment.
9. replace the bulb.
10. saw off the extra plastic tab at the bottom of the holder ( will help in putting it back and for future installs)
11. replace everything in the reverse order: bulb , cover ( inside the passenger compartment), replace screws from inside the trunk.

How do you replace a 3rd brake light on a Sonata 2007? There doesn't seem to be a panel I can remove.

There are two screws right underneath the brake light, you can access them from the trunk. There might be a black, round sticker on top of the hole if it hasn't been removed before.

Hyundai 2006 Sonata high mount brake light.

the rear seat does NOT have to be removed in order to replace the stoplamp and/or its bulb.
you have to get into the trunk, and there are (2) philips screws holding the stoplamp secured to the package tray. the actual process takes about 15 minutes, because to do it right you have to actually get IN the trunk.

the price they charged you sounds about right if the price of the stoplamp is included, dealerships tend to overcharge for parts.

Cant remove the bulb from the inside

According to the service manual, you must remove the cloth package tray that the third brake light assembly is attached to. First unclip the electrical connector located directly underneath in the trunk. Then remove the five philips screws securing the tray to the rear body by folding down the rear seatbacks. The package tray must then be pried off-not easy.
