    Default High Level Brake light

    I stripped down the tailgate as I wanted to replace the rear level brake light on my 2.0dti hatch vectra c and to my suprise there is no access to the light unit itself. There is a metal palte welded over it, cant even get to the wiring. The haynes manual states that I should clip it out from the inside but this is impossible. Any ideas how to remove it??

    Thanks for that Mark, any idea if I would have to replace the whole unit, or is it pos to replace the individual l.e.d's.

    Comes as a complete unit from dealers, just fitted a clear one £40. The vauxhall technical information sheet for this procedure says you have to drill 3 holes in the back of the surround to access the bolts (4mm allan key). The positions are shown with a dimple on the panel. Don't forget to paint the drilled edges when finished.
