The High Level Brake Light is the third stop lamp, fitted centrally and high-up above the rear window.

The high level brake light needs an obscure W16W (W2.1/9.5d) lamp available: here on ebay or this link to amazon.co.uk

To access the lamps in the high level brake light unit, open the boot lid to reveal two access holes behind the high level lamp unit.

Put a large screwdriver in the hole and push the driver against the bright spring steel clip in the hole. Lever the lamp unit out of the boot lid while pressing in the clip. Do this for each side and the high level brake lamp unit will be released.
