Default How to Install LED Roof 3rd Brake Light On 07-08

So this was done using a red waterproof 120cm or 96cm LED strip from eBay.

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.


From here you can tap into the existing wires to the factory 3rd brake light (6.5 gens). If you don't have the factory spoiler with 3rd brake light wires should be the same colors found in harness running towards the front of the vehicle.

If you pull up on the boot you can find your wires there.
12v - Red/Green
Ground - Black

From here you should be able to mount your roof spoiler and reassemble everything.

Here you can see they are pretty hidden unless you really look for them.

I also ended up putting a black vinyl overlay on the factory 3rd brake light to make it look like part of the spoiler. You could paint it to match the vehicle's color if you don't ever plan on using again.

Bootz, really nice instructions. If you don't mind, tell me about your tail lights. Is that a total assembly replacement? Best I've ever seen.

Thank you,
Thunder

They are made by DEPO. Do some searching on ebay. It's a whole light replacement. Actually cheaper than the ones everyone has on here.

Honestly they are kinda ugly unless you have a tint on the lens. LOL

I didn't really care what they looked like because I planned on tinting them. But at night I loved they way they lit up.

Bootz, thanks
The way they look at night is what caught my eye. Haven't seen day time photos, how ugly can they be? lol

I think the general opinion was ugly transformer looking, but yeah, you're on the right track. Most who have them tinted them and they end up looking a lot better.


Good job on the write bootz, that mod came out pretty clean.

Bootz,
I still like this mod. Looks great. Did you add the roof spoiler at the time you put in the high brake light or did you already have that? What spoiler are you using?

Also I see what you mean about the tail lights needing to be darkened.

I forget.

They didn't make one that fit perfectly so I ended up buying one maybe 3" longer and cutting some of the leds off.

I don't remember. I just measured the top of the window and got something that ended up being a lil longer.

Maybe 48"?

IMO it'll probably be better to include the exact measurements for other members to see in the future. Most people are gonna want that information.

Other than that, this is a good write-up and looks great. Might have to try something like this is the future.
