How do I replace the 3rd brake light red cover on my 2006 Mini Cooper S, I can't tell if the lens is separate from the light fixture or if it is a all-in-one pop in unit with lens attached.

It is all in one light fixture with lens. Open the rear hatch and there are three either T-20 or phillips heads that hold the third brake light. Remove all three and remove the light, disconnect the connector plug and install the new light.

Mini cooper red elevated car warning light

That just means you're due for service. There's a counter in your on board computer that times out on things like brake fluid, coolant, inspection, air filter, spark plugs etc.. when one of those reaches zero, the car gives that signal to tell you to go in for service. Those must be reset with an external scanner. they can't be done by the driver.

Sensor light come on after brake replacement

Yes and could be the wheel sensor was not hooked up or damaged during the brake servicing....but the air bag problem is probably not related...a proper diagnosis would require that the codes be retrieved from the computer then go from there.
