    Camaro SS brake light

    some bulbs on the third brake light are out (the one on the spoiler), so I went to change them. Do you have to replace the whole light fixture, or how do you get to the lights individually?

    You have to change the entire lightbar. I can get you the model # if you like.

    right on man thanks I found it. Did you change it yourself, or go to a shop? Looks like some wiring involved?

    Ya there is wiring involved,,,,the stinking replacement lights don't have the connector on the end

    Most people will slice and dice. I didn't want to do that so I went to GM and got the factory wire terminals and factory connector. At the time they were available for a few pennies. Made a nice clean install as the factory intended. I would assume the GM dealers would still have this stuff??

    The guys are right about everything (part #) etc. When I bought mine, it was $100 for the part. GM part # 12369969

    I did it myself, i had to feed the wire through the spoiler w a coat hanger to get the proper connection. It was a little bit of a pain in the ass but i've had no problems at all. No wire splicing involved at all.

    I thought the big deal about LED lights were that they would last forever and the initial high cost would be off set by that fact.Just so much hype & fluff I guess.

    Ya they aren't all they are cracked up to be in my opinion. I could do without to be honest. Plain ole' light bulbs are just fine in my book.

    WOW!!! The price of that went way up since I bought one...I paid $70 about a year ago. That is a huge hike in a short time.

    If I could remember where I bought it I'd tell ya

    But it came in an SLP package and the lens had SLP stamped in it with a GM part number. So it's not a knockoff. But that price difference would surely make ya think it is,,,,ouch!!!
