    Is there any way to get GM part #17802272 Clear 3rd Brake light

    I purchased a 08 STS-V and it has the clear Euro taillights and I think it looks odd with the red 3rd brake light. I would prefer to find the clear 3rd brake light instead of having the red one tinted in an attempt to make it blend in more.

    I have tried searching online auctions, called a couple of larger GM parts warehouses, posing a WTB listing in the classifieds.
    Is there anyway to get ahold of one of these?

    When in doubt go to cadillac.com, contact us and send them an email. has worked out beautifully for me. Cadillac seems to take great care you once you own their product.

    Just tried them they do not have any and they did not see any in inventory in the US.

    Is there a Euro/International version?
    I figured since there is a US taillight and a Euro tailight there might be 2 different part numbers for 3rd brake lights?

    there is a euro version for tail lights and American accessory. They look pretty much the same except euro versions have an extra strip of Amber LEDs. As far as high mount light is concerned they seem same to me in both euro and American accessory version. This vendor on ebay has some tail lights, i would call him and ask for the center light who knows he might source one for you if not 5 minutes on phone is all you will waste.

    Tried that already. They said there was nothing they could do the part has been discontinued for some time now.
    They offered to work with me and the local dealership to give me a discount on the red taillights to match. I said thanks but no thanks.

    I already contacted that seller. He doesn't have any 3rd brake lights and doesn't think he will ever get any. I did buy a set of the Euro tailights from him to replace the US clears (which will become spares) that are on it now. He was willing to negotiate a discounted shipped price for the set. I just received them yesterday and they were packed perfectly in plastic wrap and many layers of bubble wrap in a huge box. He lists them as used but they look brand new, no dust or grime on them any where the foam seals on the mounting posts are brand new. The lenses are clean and scratch free. If you are looking for a pair you wont be disappointed.


    I am open to any other suggestions.
    If anyone has one that is considering selling it I will pay top dollar and give them my Red one in return.

    Is there any difference in appearance between the 2 other than the row of Amber turn signal lights?
    My car has not arrived yet so I can't compare the 2 side by side
