    Replacing LED High-Level Brake Light/3rd Brake Light

    Hi,

    Has anyone ever tried to replace the LED High-Level Brake Light/3rd Brake Light in a b5.5 Passat Estate/Wagon??

    When I apply the brakes, I only get two LEDs at each end of the strip lighting up, so I'm guessing I need to replace it. I believe the part number is - 1J6945131C

    Phoned the dealership and they want £25 for the part but £108 inclusive to install!!

    Looking at where the part is, i'm guessing part of the trim will need to be taken off so looking for advise from anyone who has tackled it

    yeah if you look at the hatch underneath there are 2 phillps i think screws to take the trim off, the rest are just clips just pull, the 3rd brake light is held in by 2 phillips screws

    On the hatch there are two hand holds for closeing the hatch, there is a plastic snap hinged cover, that is where the screws are. I also had two screws (one on each side) on the pillars towards the bottom of the window (back glass). The rest of the removal consists of snap clips, and you just need to pull straight out (away).

    I am sure I saw a writeup on this several years ago. Check the Info Forum or try a search for it.
