    How easy is it to change the red third brake light on a hatch, to a silver one?

    I think H11 is on about changing the red 3rd brake light for a clear (smoked) one like on SRi/GSi's.

    Changing the rear centre brake light is pretty easy though requires some care so as not to mark the paint. They are held in by four spring clips, two top, two bottom and you need some thin screwdrivers or maybe old feeler gauges to slide in and push the clips down. The light then just pops out and there is a single connector on one end.
    Makes a world of difference to the back of the car.

    Cheers, That is exactly what I wanted to know, although the stickers look well

    What colour would people recommend for a Lightning Silver
