Default No 3rd Brake Light

So i un hooked the 3rd break light in the back glass and unplugged the light. so i was siting around for a few days with a hole in the back of my car. (which i hated) and then i had this idea, i think it kinda looks good looks like a speaker so its working for me. if anyone had a better idea id love to know.

The dealership has a plate that covers that hole. I think it's only like $20 too. You used an AC vent? Lol.

You don't need a speaker cover. Call any nissan dealer near you and tell them you want to get the third brake light cover for 07-08. Yes, it's 07-08 only that have that cover available for purchase.

Doesn't look bad IMO. Looks like an air vent, or a floor register



That might be a cool place for a soft glow LED ambient light.

Bad idea if you're trying to back up in a dark area. It will reflect on the inside of your back window.

A rear view camera only has a limited view angle. You do need to actually look behind you and your sides. I know because I have one in every max lol

I concur. I was just being an ass.

Seriously, it could be wired to turn off in reverse.
Some rear window sun shades lower when the car is in reverse.

Here's the part number you need: 9991j-mtpsg The "G" on the end is the trim color code for black. I believe "K" is frost. There's also a "C", but I'm not sure what color that is.
