    I, too, need to replace the bulb in the high mount stop light on a 2006 Sonata GLS. The only screw that is accessible (inside trunk compartment, bottom of package tray) does not seem to remove the light, just the wiring pigtail.

I, too, have this same problem with my car. All the fuses are fine, and the bulbs are fine. The brake light in the back window works, but the read ones do not. This is crazy.

It is not as complicated as you think. You just reach the light housing from the rear seats and squeeze the housing to release it from the rear panel. Once it is out, you can unplug the cable and replace the bulb. Good luck!

HMS Lamp will be mounted in roof or in rear parcel tray.

You have to locate the screws which will be closed/covered by a dummy cap. Remove the cap and unscrew the assembly, you will be able to replace the bulbs

1999 GMC Envoy: replaced both GE 3057 lamps in left rear light assembly. Lamps both light. However depressing brake pedal does not initiate brake light. The righ rear brake light does work. The high mount...


The high mount brake light has its own fuse, so check that first. The high mount bulb is generally a stabdard type (there may be more than one bulb) or you can replace with an LED. As for the left rear bulbs not working when depressing brake pedal, check the bulbs again for any spring that may be broken. If the bulbs are still good, make sure there is sufficient contact with the socket. If still not working, have someone check it out further.

Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Before installing the lens, make sure the brake light operates properly by having an assistant depress the brake pedal.

How do I replace the bulb in the high mount stop light?


Please look at the bottom of your tail lights there is 1 flat head screw there. Take it out and you can slide tail light out. You will find the back of the bulb there. Be care when returning the assembly back in place as it slide up and then you just replace the screw.

Bulb replacement in hyndai sonata high mounted rear stoplight


Research revealed no available illustration of procedure. If memory serves, there are two 'access' plates on either side of the lamp assy (popped out with small screwdriver) and two phillps screws retaining the assy in place. Remove the access plates (plastic) and the screws behind them.. access is gained.
