Default How to Install LED Roof 3rd Brake Light On 04-06

This is for the 04-06 only. If you have an 07-08, see instructions here: How to Install LED Roof 3rd Brake Light On 07-08

Half of these instructions (and pictures) are courtesy of @BOOTZ. Thanks!

So this was done using a red waterproof 120cm or 96cm LED strip from eBay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Red-LED-Line...item3f0f2bdbdc

Something like this...

Click the image to open in full size.

I started out by removing the driver's side rear window molding. There is one 10mm bolt you have to remove and only visible when you open the trunk.

Click the image to open in full size.

Once that is removed start prying upwards on the molding starting from the bottom and working your way up. There are about four clips holding it on. Be careful not to put too much pressure on the window or the body of the car. Don't want to break glass or dent anything.

Once off should look like so....

Click the image to open in full size.

Then take you led strip and apply two sided tape to it. I used 3m. You want to clean the led strip really well then I heated up the led and the tape before applying it. Did the same on the window. Cleaned it really well and heated it up.

Before applying the led to the window I set the roof spoiler in position and placed a small piece of the led underneath to see where i could place it without getting in the way of mounting the spoiler. Turned out to be maybe 1/2" from the top of the window.

Also before applying, make sure your wires are running down the driver's side. That is where the rubber boot is where the wires will run in.

Click the image to open in full size.

You are then able to run the wires down towards the rubber boot going into the vehicle. I just tucked them under the window. The molding will cover it up anyway.

Click the image to open in full size.

Click the image to open in full size.

Click the image to open in full size.

Then you'll need to run the wire through the boot. I cut a very small hole in the top of the boot, just big enough for the wire to go through.

Click the image to open in full size.

You'll need to pull back the carpeting on the left side and some of the carpeting from the roof of the trunk. Feed the wire down through the boot and into the trunk.

Click the image to open in full size.

I tapped into the wire that go to the taillight. The green/yellow is the POSITIVE for the brake and the black is the NEGATIVE.

Click the image to open in full size.

Click the image to open in full size.

Tie the wire up and put the carpet back in place.

Click the image to open in full size.

You should add a little dab of some sort of silicone (gasket maker) to the spot on the boot where you put the wire through to make sure it stays waterproof.

Install the spoiler and you're done!

Looks good. As i scrolled down i hoped that you had a roof spoiler.

Do you see any reflections on the rear window in the rear-view mirror at night?

Default Re: How to Install LED Roof 3rd Brake Light On 04-06

Roof spoiler's next. Maybe. I was hoping that it didn't look too obstructive without one, but I think the strip is too bulky. Going to look into a thinner strip for sure.

And pointing up yes - for now. The rubber around each LED is circular, and I tested it with the strip laying on its side (I suppose that would be pointing backward) but I didn't like the way the lights looked (daytime) with the downward angle of the glass - but it did take away from the bulky sticking up look. I also tried putting on the lip of where the roof and rear glass meet, but this strip was NOT cooperating. At night nobody will notice any difference I don't think.

Those 3 LEDs not working are killing me though. Now that I know I like the general look of this on my car, I am going to try to hunt down a thinner, better quality strip. If I had a spoiler, thickness wouldn't matter, but I don't have one yet! This is more or less just a rough draft of a LED brake strip for her...
