Third brake light screws

I replaced the seven bulbs in the third brake light. I was screwing the two screws back in and the "plugs" that they are supposed to go into fell into who knows where? Help, now the whole brake light isn't anchered to anything and will probably move around.

I was advised to go to Advance Auto (store) and tell them my problem. I did this, and the gentleman sold me a pack (4) square license plate nuts, #8 x 1/2" screws. the cost was $1.75. I popped the plastic nut into each whole and screwed the third brake light strip into place. No rattles!

Replacing brake light


Hi Edward-
The top brake light lens is held on with two size T25 Torx screws. You need a suitable size torx screw driver to remove (and again later replace the assembly) the two screws. Once the screws are removed (do not lose these), you can remove the entire lens assembly. You'll see the wires leading to the plastic bulb socket. The bulb socket twists off the assembly like a bayonet. Once the bulb socket is off, you'll be able to remove the bulb simply by pulling it straight out. Replace the bad bulb by inserting the new bulb and then reassemble your third brake light in the reverse order you removed it. Enjoy!

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.

How do i replace my brake light for my 97 honda accord. The third light.


If you will look in the trunk under that light you will see 2 holes on each side of the light. Inside those holes are the screws holding the light in place. Remove those screws and the light can then be taken out and the bulb replaced.

My high level brake light has bruned out,(third brake light). I was informed by the dealer the back window panel has to be removed to replace the 3.00 dollar bulb, total cost 75.00 dollars. With some


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.

NEED TO CHANGE BULB BUT CAN'T SEEM TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET INTO CASING


First open the rear liftgate (not just the glass). This will expose the two screws that secure the housing of the lamp to the body (it also exposes the connector plug which, obviously, you should unplug). After removing the two screws, separate the rubber housing from the LED lamp itself....and there you have it!
The third brake light might be a sealed lamp, so the entire brake light must be changed. you can't just replace the bulbs.
I hope this helps.

3rd brake light


This is how i did it on my 2006 Sonata

1.) unplug the connector in the trunk (its a small white plug running up to the third light, there should be a small clip you squeeze).

2.) remove the 2 gold-colored screws from inside the trunk. They can be seen from the trunk. 1 is thru the larger square opening where the wire connects to the 3rd brake light. The 2nd is on the right side thru a small (screwdriver width) hole covered by a piece of foam tape stuff I had to punch me screwdriver through the foam to get to it.

3.) after removing the 2 screws, go inside the cabin and the brake light housing pops up.

4.) disconnect the bulb from the housing while inside the cabin (I had to do this with me two forefingers since the housing only pops up and inch or two).

5.) in the trunk remove the wire and bulb. (it's about 5 inches long. the wire from the connector to the bulb socket)

6.) reverse steps to install.

It is a pain and reqiuires a bit of time only because there isn't a lot of room to move around, but it beats taking it to the dealershio!
