Rear (Third) Brake Light Bulb Replacement

10564 Views 11 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  EEBreh
Is there any trick to removing the cover for the third brake light? I've tried pushing in on the two tabs and I pull back but the cover won't budge. Is there anything else I have to disassemble? I am trying to get rid of the stupid idiot light on the dash. :confused: The car is a 1986 420SEL - any tips would be appreciated!

I took two small flat blade screw drivers and carefully pried the tabs out. The cover came off without any issues! I think I am lucky - the previous owner (old grandpa) always garaged the car and put a cover on it, no UV damage. Thanks for the help guys! :)
