    If you have the part number, check gmpartsdirect.com, but their shipping will be killer.

    Damn. Thats expensive, for just the light. One side of my 3rd brake light is half dead. Looks odd, can't you just replace the bulbs? I'm thinking about just disconnecting the whole damn thing and smoking it.

    Or...paint over it? I got a medium smoke on the tailights and 3rd brake light...looks great. All depends on the color of your car.

    They are LEDs. Like the Sevilles in the past, the problem is probably the circuit boards getting wet and ruining the foils around the bulbs.

    Re: Third Brake Light Replacement

    If brand-spanking-new-from-the-dealer isn't of utmost importance, you might want to consider www.ledfix.com; they offer replacement Esky CHMSL units for $125 shipped w/ 2-year warranty. I have no affiliation with them...just a satisfied customer.

    Sure you might be able to get one on Ebay for less...even one that's new...but then again just about none of them come with any kind of warranty. And if you say the warranty isn't that important to you 'cuz LEDs last forever--well you were looking to buy a replacement 'cuz the one you have right now went out on you, no?

    Re: Third Brake Light Replacement

    Heres a question i have had no luck getting answered so im just going to try what seems to be commen sence, what is to stop me from disassembling the high mount third brake light and installing a new LED strip for $9.99. I'm going to wire the existing plug receptacle from the car to the new strip of lights and in close it back into the lens and ballast. it seems to me this would work and I have been an unable to find anything to the contrary.

    It would great if you could post a little info on how you went about that! $400.00 for a replacement light is just criminal!
    maybe a quick story on how you attached new to old wiring? solder? quick connect? I figured you must cut a section of the back of the lense out to access? Dremel tool ? seems to me it would work great!
