Customer Question
I have a Honda...

I have a Honda 2015 CRV and the high 3rd brake light on the rear hatch is damaged and I would like to replace it. But I cannot find a way to remove it.

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

A couple of weeks now. I have the replacement but can’t find a way to remove the light

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I was hoping so it is just a light exchange

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Nope that’s about it

are you changing the entire assembly or just the bulb?

Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 1 month ago

If you are replaceing the entire thing due to yours being broken or being the LED Style here are instructions

remove the trim panel.

2x 4mm nuts behind a trim panel, unplug the power source, and pop it out. Reverse to install a new one. Word to the wise though: be very careful taking those tiny 4mm nuts off. Finding them inside the frame of the tailgate is misery.

Let me know if you need anything else as I am here for you. Please remember to RATE me as I strive to do my BEST, ***** ***** ratings help me to achieve this. 5 STAR RATING IS MY GOAL AND WHAT I STRIVE FOR

I don’t see where on trim the little screws are. That’s what everyone says. I’m replacing the whole red lens.
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 1 month ago

the trim is held on by clips. the screws are under the trim

Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 1 month ago

the trim will pull off, but be careful as the clips can break

What trim are you speaking of. Inside or out and where do I find screws.
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 1 month ago

inside the vehicle

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
It looks like one whole piece across the top. Do I just take a screwdriver and pull the piece off? It seems to be very tight
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 1 month ago
The clips keep it tightly secured

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I could just pull this off and it won’t destroy the clips?
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 1 month ago

it shouldn't, but you will need to be careful as it can damage them if pulled too hard

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Ok. Not happy here. I did everything you advertised. Un clipped the light from inside and the light will still not pop out. Does it take an engineering degree to change this?
