    Default Third brake light - anyone have picture of the rear of it?

    I know you need to drill the tailgate to remove the light, I'd just like to see the rear of the light and what the mounting clips are like.

    Does anyone have a picture to hand, please?

    you don`t need to drill the tailgate m8 to remove the 3rd brakelight,i used an old credit card cut up in 6 pieces,just wedge them between the light and the tailgate and ease it out..mine came out in 5 mins.

    no mate take a realy close look along the edge all round and you will see the six metal clips i used some new palstic scrapers from a tin of p38 once you have pushed all six in between the endge of the light and the metal of the boot they just come out mate.

    Spray it with the tinting spray only. You will get a good shine if done properly. You can also polish it after a good few coats and fully dry.

    I tinted my Vectra B rear lights and machine polished them often. They looked great.

    Default Vectra C 3rd brakelight tailgate

    Hello guys,

    I was hoping to replace my Vectra C 3rd brakelight from red to clear before adding a Vxr spoiler on.

    Do you have to remove the inner boot trim to remove the 3rd brakelight?

    are there any screws that hold the brakelight to the tailgate or isit just clips?

    cheers.

    Ash
