Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

Now we're gonna remove the third brake light assembly. These two silver tabs, you're gonna take a flat blade tool. You're gonna get two clicks. And then after that you're gonna go in right here, pry down, slide out.

And to take the connector off, take your tool again until it clicks and you can slide it right out.

You're gonna reinstall. Click this connector in. Want to slide it in. Line it up and listen for the click. You're gonna line these two tabs up to the hole. When it's lined up then you just push up. And you can push these two clips up. And that's it.
