You have to remove the rear parcel shelf, which is held in with a half
dozen clips. Flop the rear seats down, and pull up on the shelf. Be careful
not to break the clips or yank the brake lamp electrical connector.
Once the shelf is loose, there are two small screws on the underside of the
brake lamp housing. Remove those and the bulb is now accessible. Pretty
stupid design, I think.
the whole concept is stupid. we wouldn't need them at all if we didn't
have red rear turn signal lenses. detroit resists orange turn signals
because of trivial incremental cost increase. nhtsa wants them for
safety. the [brainless] political solution is the central brake light -
half the expense of orange signals and they still don't address the
fundamental safety issue of turn signals and brakes lights being the
same color. a truly despicable lack of gonads...
