Default Brake Light Replacement-93 Convertible

I have a 1999 9-3 Convertible and the middle light on the trunk mounted brake bar is out and needs replacement. Anybody know how to get at the brake bar to replace this light. I am guessing that I take off the trunk liner and various handles etc to get at it, but could anybody confirm before I get into it? Thanks, Mike Flannery

Try here... it's the MY 2000 but it's likely the same for the 1999:

Thanks Bob-turned out to be a no-brainer. There were four bulbs in there so I replaced them all figuring that the others would die eventually and I would have to rip it apart four times.

One of my middle bulbs went out on my NG900 today too. Does anyone know the part number for the bulb? The auto stores tend to give me the wrong parts.

If you go to a store that sells Sylvania bulbs, look for a 2825. That's their part number for the original W5W. You can also use a 168 or a 194, but both are a little dimmer than a W5W.

I used the #168 and they seem fine. Mike

It turns out that the bulbs are fine and it was the contacts that needed cleaning. Atleast I have spare bulbs now.
