    how do you remove the light? I opened the rear door and see no way to check power with my test light. The drivers side has "popped" out a bit - is the light just pressed into place or is it secured with screws?

    I watched my husband (he's a mechanic) remove it and it is sitting in place and
    secured with screws but It is pretty simple. As a matter of fact, mine will ALWAYS be garage kept from now on cause its as simple as lifting the hatch glass and removing 3 screws.

    Have a great day,

    Pop the hatch glass and not the rear door.

    There are 3 screws. undo them, light will come off, then there's the electrical connector.

    I just replaced mine a few days ago.

    VERY Easy

    Ok new to forumn here, but have an06 Escalade, only half the 3rd brake light works. Is the power divided into 2 sections? I cannot figure out how to take the whole light off the hatch door either. I can't seem to find any screws? Help please!
