3rd Brakelight Cover Question

910 Views 6 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  SmokingTires

The 3rd brake light is out on my 96 camry and I'm unable to remove the cover to access the bulb.

Is there a special trick to remove the cover w/out breaking it?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You mean the one behind your rear window?
Just pull up and towards your self, it should come off. It's not that hard, it just held by few clips or something. Try to play around with it if that won't work.
It's been a long time, I don't remember for sure.
ya, just pull up and towards comes off very easily...and to put it back on just push towards the rear view and down and it should snap in
You could also refer to your owners manual, i think it tells you how with some diagrams.
just yank if off...and when your done put it back in with a good swift hit
if its like the gen 4, u can go at it from under neath in the trunk and push up the lil clips
Get a screw driver, pry it under, pop it up as best you can. Then pretty much grab and pull. Don't worry about breaking it, you won't. It just takes so force from the angle you have. (That's also the only way to get to the speakers)
