    I take it that you mean the 3rd Brake light, the one in the top centre of the hatch itself?

    You have to get to it from the back to remove it.

    It means taking off the 2 rear window side trims, then remove the 4 studs from the lower edge of the trim panel. then undo the retaining screws in the centre of the panel and pull out hte centre pins of the rivets.

    Then gently pull the panel away to release the remaining clips.

    You then see the back of the brake light. A couple of inchs away from either end of the lamp is a locking clip. You have to squeeze each one in turn whilst at the same time pushing in the lug at each end.

    You can then pull out the light.

    hi some boot lids you cant get at from the inside
    best to do what some said and rip it out.
    or if you have 6 thin plastic wedges use the from the outside and try and push the metal clips in to release the light.
