    Default C5 3rd brake install

    Does anyone have instructions or know how to get to the 3rd brake light
    to replace it. I bought a 2002 corvette it has alot of glue and tape on it
    and I would like to replace it with a new one. Also any suggestions on the
    pulsating lights. Any good or any suggestions.

    Hi Barry,

    First of all, please consider supporting this great resource.

    The C5 third brake light is an LED unit. If the unit has gone out the entire unit needs to be replaced. There are two bolts that hold the unit in that are accessed by removing the rear plate holder.

    Hth,

    Jim

    Default 3rd brake light

    Hey Jim,
    I have removed the rear plate holder and the lights and still cannot
    seem to get to it. I don't know if I did know if I gave up to soon. So you
    are saying you can take off the rear license plate holder and can reach
    the 2 screws holding the 3rd brake light in place and unsrew those and
    can remove it. Let me know if this is how. Thank you Barry
