Hi there,

Are you wanting to change the brake light switch yourself?

This is actually a very easy switch to replace. It's up under the dash on the brake pedal lever. There is a recall for it however and the dealership will replace it free of charge for you.

Biggest issue with this is location, the switch is held in place with a lock nut. Getting a wrench on it can sometimes be a real problem which is why I would consider allowing the dealer to do it under the recall.

I am sending a diagram of it's location for you as well.

Please let me know if there is any more I can do to help you from here.
