Clubman third braking light how to remove?

Hi!
Has anyone removed and renewed that third braking light in Clubman?

Sometime next week it is time to do that to our Clubman because that does not work at all and I'm waiting new one from the dealer which we bought this Clubman.

Can anyone give some advice what to remove and what not, because I don't know does that new third braking light have instructions with it.

Regards:
Juge

Sorry, can't help with the light, but ask your dealer to print out the instructions available for that part from Mini - they should regard this as a normal part of the service they offer, since you are buying the part from them. The workshop might not help with that, but the parts department should.

It is possible the instructions will say to refer to another set of instructions to remove a trim piece and then to unscrew the light fitting, so that wouldn't help you much (since getting trim off is likely to be the part that isn't obvious), but you might get lucky and find some useful instructions.

Removing third brake light was easy.

Just unscrew all screws which holds that black plastic "thing" under rear "spoiler" and there it is, third brake light on your hand.

Tired to waiting new 3rd brakelight (waited over 2 months) so I opened that casing where wires goes in. And found the fault. There was some component totally burned, only hole where it should be. Gave power from car battery charger and started to connect the dots and contacts with screwdriver. And then it gave positive marks by turning on

A little tin thread and solder and made tin-bridge between two dots and thats it
