450 High Brake Light (5 bulbs)

4 posts in this topic

One bulb was dead and they aren't listed in the manual, so I took the ass'y apart to get a bulb out; everything went back together and worked for a week. I bought 5 replacements from the dealer. Today I put the bulbs into the ass'y, then tried to re-install it. Somehow I must've loosened the female contact inside the housing on top of the rear window; I couldn't get the two contact prongs of the light assembly to stick to anything, and of course there's no power to the light. So: has anyone taken the housing apart at top of rear window; is there anything I need to watch for? Has anyone had this problem with the contacts for the high brake light?
