High Level Brake Bulbs
Changing the bulbs in the high level brake light assembly.
Fortwo 450 And Roadster 452
For some reason, many places will tell you that the bulbs in the high level brake light cannot be removed. It could be that they have had problems getting the bulbs out.
Needless to say, you can get the bulbs out and I have a nice easy way to do it. The five bulbs are 284 bulbs, they are a mini wedge fit bulb like the 501.
Removing The Reflector And Diffuser
Undo the 2 posi head screws and pull the diffuser out of the spoiler.
Underneath you will find the reflector, warning it is sharp. The reflector may come out in the diffuser or may stay attached to the car. If it ist attached to the car, you just need to pull it to free the connections.
Changing The Bulbs
Take a piece of sellotape and wrap it around the bulb that doesn't work so it sticks to itself and the bulb.
Pull the sellotape and the bulb will pop out.
The bulbs currently in it are 284 bulbs which are available from most motor spares shops. Being a bulb they will work either way around unlike an LED so just push them in.
