    When removing the "C" pillar covers does this mean you have to remove the curtain airbags too.

Replace the bulb...??? This requires you remove the rear package deck (to access the bulb & socket). to do this, remove the seat bottom (two bolts hold the rear seat bottom to the chassis, then remove the bolts which hold the shoulder cushions (LH & RH - 12mm bolts) then remove the cosmetic molding around the trunk access (7 to 8 screws) then remove the "C" pillar covers (SRS curtain airbag LH & RH) to access the rear deck package & access the third brake lamp bulb. replace it, then reassemble.

    No... do not remove the curtain airbag initiators... only the C pillar covers (they need to be moved out of the way so you can remove the rear deck package and access the 3rd brake light fixture/assy.

How do I replace the high mount brake light on my 2011 Chevy Malibu?


You need to take the back seat out. Remove the C-Pillar trim panels. Lift up on the package shelf. Unplug the wiring connector. I've had mine out when I changed the speakers.

BTW, Its Not a Bulb. Its a LED Assembly. Replaced as a whole unit. Unless your good with electronics and soldering.

In my 2002 Honda Odyssey, the high brake light is accessed by removing a small triangular red piece from the right side of the cover. This piece often breaks but I was successful by soaking the area with STP silicone spray, waiting 15 minutes and then prying the piece up in the slot on the left side with a miniature flat bladed screwdriver. You then remove the underlying screw amd remove the housing. Twist the bulb holder out and remove the bulb by pulling straight out. Push the new bulb in - I usually hold it in a paper towel because by this time my hands are dirty. Twist the bulb holder back in. Push the housing back in starting on the left side. Replace the screw. Put in the triangular piece starting with the right side clip. I then pry the housing open with my screwdriver very carefully to fit the left clip in. If you break the piece it's under $10 at the Honda dealer. The piece is not well designed but you can make it work if you're patient.

Also, be sure you purchase the replacement light bulb lamp first before you tear everything apart. See sources and related links below for more light bulb information.

How to replace the third brake light (hatch) on a 2005 hyundai accent. I took off the 4 screw on the the plastic cover and it still won't come off. Tried taking off cove of back hatch but don't want to...


Above the third brake light is a small panel, remove this panel using small screwdriver.
1. You'll see four (4) bolts, remove the three bolts that are painted black, do not remove the center bolt holding the plastic molding, this is for the door molding, and has nothing to do with the light.
2. Once those three bolts are out, you'll see two more small screws, remove them and you'll have access to the third brake light bulb.

Be careful when pulling out the bulb, my bulb broke, and I'm still trying to get pieces out! - Good luck.

Rear brake lights, rear turn signals inoperable. bulbs replaced and are working, simply not responding to brake or turn signal?


If the third brake light always works, then it is the turn signal switch. If the third brake light does not work, it is probably something else. The turn signal switch is in the steering column. You have to remove the airbag and steering wheel, take out all of the componets and replace the turn signal switch. Special tools are required and a moderate level of mechanical ability. Watch the airbag, it can go off and cause serious injury!!

Brake lights not working


Having the sa but haven't replaces the brake switch. The owner's manual for my 99 accord indicates the the fuse is located behind a panel that is viewable when you open the door on the driver's side. There is a panel that you remove (pull off) to expose the fuses. The brake light fuse is the third one from the top on the left. 7.5 A

My third brake light is out and needs replacing


If I remember correctly, you need to pop off the plastic trim panel on the inside of the trunk to access the wiring. Just unplug it after removing all the screws and it should come out.

Replace rear window brake light bulb


I just had to do this, and it isn't all that easy or quick. First, gently work the gray, carpet like cover loose from the area around the tail light ,(this may give you a little trouble). Once you have done this, you will see three silver nuts. These must be unscrewed. The lower left nut must be accessed through a hole next to where the trunk lid fits. (The screws are permanently attached to the lens housing so will not drop into obscurity when the nuts are removed). After removing the nuts, GENTLY work the lens housing away from the car. You may need a screw driver to unseat the housing, but just be gentle.

You will find three bulbs inside the lens. The brake light bulb is on the lower right side. Simply pull the old bulb out and insert the new one.

Just reverse these directions to reassemble the housing.
