Re: 2010 MS3 3rd brake light cover removal
The information I have is that it is best to remove the spoiler to do this, these are the instructions I was given.
You will need to remove the spoiler to get to it. there are 4 nuts that hold it as well as some clips. 2 nuts under the plastic plugs at the top of the tailgate when you open it and 2 under the plastic trim in the middle of the tail gate. The trim just pops off.
Make sure you unplug the brake light which is located under the trim piece as well. All the nuts are 10mm if i remember right.
Once the nuts are removed its held on with about 4 plastic clips. If you close the tailgate and just pull kind of up and back it will pop off. It requires a bit of pulling but i have had it off 3 times or so and it wont break.
Then once its off there are 4 screws that hold on a plastic cover, take that off and take off the next 4 screws holding on the brake light and it will come off.
Let me know if this helps, this is on my list of exterior mods.
