What are the steps to changing this bulb? (3rd brake light) Its much harder than my other car. Are the parts sensitive to position?

actually its the easiest thing you will ever do,

access if from the back seat,, there are 2 little marks on the side,, push both in and gently pull off,, bulb is right there,,, just make sure u get the right bulb,, cause ive heard of people putting in the wrong one and they over heat and melt the plastic back there... safest bet is the dealership with your vin,,, its a 3 doller bulb... better safe than sorry...

Yeh , I paid about 20 at a dealership in Orlando many years back. You will get a discount from the dealer if you are a shop or develop a relationship with one of the part guys at the dealer.
