How do you remove the third brake light from a sedan?
 
Title says it all. I can get it seperated from the trunk deck, but i dont know how to pull the wires out from it. Anyone who can give me info that will allow me to do this will get rep. Pics are awesome as well...

As per Haynes Manual...open luggage compartment, remove carpet trim from behind the light unit. Unclip the bulbholder from the reflector. Pull out the relevant wedge type bulb from the holder, fit new buld and install in reverse order

hope it helps [thumb]

Patience young grasshopper. Keep an eye out in the showroom forum on friday. My buddy is detailing my car cause he owes me some money, and he just got his new camera, the $8000 Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III. Its a 21.1 megapixel! So, friday, he is doing a super good detail, then taking some pics. I get to drive his civic si!
