3rd brake light



  Renault clio 182
Hi all,
Noticed my 3rd brake light wasnt working and after looking for a replacement for a while, the cheapest one i found was £150 second hand 😲. Instead I paid £1.50 for a led strip and a little modification to the light later apresto!! I now have a working 3rd brake light 👍

I did the same not long back and documented it in here. If you put it behind the original clear plastic bit inside the housing, it looks pretty oem as well.

This was after test fitting in an old cracked housing. For my final version I moved the leds over slightly and used a non cracked housing. The single leds aren't as noticeable in person.

I took all the inside of the light out and filled it with clear silicone with the led strip inbetween. Its a bit of a rough job but i was rushing so i do plan to redo it in the near future when i have more time. I have more issues with the car to sort first 😂😂

Aye, mines a bit rough and ready but I had to rush too for the mot last year. Been fine for going on a year though and, as you say, much cheaper than buying a new one now!

I'm surprised Renault/Valeo don't do a new run of cup 3rd brake lights, they'd make a killing.
