Replace the bulb...??? This requires you remove the rear package deck (to access the bulb & socket). to do this, remove the seat bottom (two bolts hold the rear seat bottom to the chassis, then remove the bolts which hold the shoulder cushions (LH & RH - 12mm bolts) then remove the cosmetic molding around the trunk access (7 to 8 screws) then remove the "C" pillar covers (SRS curtain airbag LH & RH) to access the rear deck package & access the third brake lamp bulb. replace it, then reassemble.

I recently replaced the front rotors, brake pads and master cylinder in my 2003 Durango. I've since discovered that the brake lights are not working, including the 3rd brake light in the tailgate. I checked and the top bulb in the left and right assemblies as well as all 3 bulbs in the 3rd brake light assembly were burned. The tail lights, reverse lights and signals work fine (other than the 2 top bulbs). I replaced those 2 bulbs as well as the 3 bulbs in the 3rd brake light assembly but sti

2003 passat 1.8t, GL My left brake light wasn't getting brighter when I braked for a while, replaced the bulb and no luck. I replaced the bulb housing and it still wasnt working properly until I took the old bulb out and tested it using a bulb from the right tail light. I had a lot of bulbs next to me and wasnt paying attention when I put a turn signal bulb in the brake light socket and it instantly cut off my right tail lights. Tried resetting them and tried switching the fuse. Any idea?
