    I have the same issue, but on the left side in the rear, there is a plastic storage box mounted to the side of the car, so i don't have access to the brake light. Do I need to remove the box and access the lamps from the back, or take off the lens from the outside somehow?



    Thanks!

    Removing the carpet on the rear drivers die to replace the brake light only reveals a plastic unit (used for Preamp/CD Changer). Can not get to brake light without removing something? How do I do this?

Good day;
In your trunk area there should be a piece of carpet by your tail light just move that to the side and then you can access your bulb. Any problems please let me know.

Cheers

How much do I expect to pay for new brakes


It will vary on the brakes, depending what needs to be replaced, rotors, calipers, pads. I would say around $200-$300 per axle. I've seen tranmission services going for $79-$99.

you need a special tool which fits into the two slots on the caliper and rotates while applying pressure to return the caliper piston. it is because the caliper piston is threaded for use with a combination parking brake.

There is no fuse for the third brake light that I know of, it is wired into the main brake light wiring on most cars anyway. Probably the bulb is blown.

Check the fluid level in the resevoir. If it is low then top it up. However, it went low for a reason - maybe it's just because your brake pads starting to wear out or you could possibly have a brake fluid leak.

If your in any doubt have a pro check it out.

The eps light is related to your brake light sensor. The emission light you will need to have the code read. Go to your local auto parts store and have it read.

Yes, check the fuses. It should tell you which it is on the fuse box cover. Or you could just pull all the fuses out. Also you may have a loose earth connection.

I had this same problem back in November during a very cold spell.I had an appointment to have some "recall" work done on my 03 passat and told them about the STOP brake light. When I picked up my car, the dealer told me that it just needed some brake fluid??, so they filled it ! Well, I don't know about that, but I haven't seen that pesky STOP warning light since.
