Following my wife I noticed that some brake lights were out. These are the ones on top of trunk,long strip. On left side there are 4 or 5 out and right side 2 were out.Are these easy to replace?
Thanks

If it is still under warranty...that is covered.
Mine was replaced under warranty.

I have heard that the individual bulbs are not replaceable.
You have to replace the entire light assembly.
But I am not totally sure about that.

Thanks,
Yes it's under warranty for 5 more yrs. Was not sure if that was covered? I know headlight bulbs are not covered as I was told.

I meant the factory 4year/50,000 mile warranty.
It will be covered under "THAT"
I do not know about CPO.
GMPP does not cover bulbs.

I think there was a TSB on the trunk mounted light getting hairline cracks in it.

The brake lights on 2007 DTS are LEDs, not bulbs. To the best of my knowlege, all brake light units, including the trunk mount unit, must be replaced as a unit. Replacement of individual LEDs is not an option.

$120 at newgmparts.com for the Led trunk mount light.
