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.

Center brake light still out after replacing bulb

It could be the Third Brake Light assembly is bad, remove the assembly and have someone step on the brake and you can check to see if you are getting current to the contacts or wires.

If no power, replace the assembly.

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.

Vw passat brake light

3 clips total. 2 on outside of light unit, to get to these you have to remove central trim from over boot latch, side trims and carpets, toolkit out, seats folded down, luggage blind removed, small trim piece inside wheel well removed (2 bolts 1 nut), then you can get up behind the light unit, gently clip the 2 outside (red) clips out till the light unit becomes free. to get to the third there is a black plastic trim piece clipped to the light unit where the boot comes down and meets it, this covers the third clip, gently pop it off and you will reveal the third clip and the nut needed to be removed to release it.
