Procedure

    First things first, pop the trunk. It’ll help to empty it as well.

    To access the connector for the 3rd brake light we’ll need to pop out three panel clips shown below:

    Remove three clips in upper left corner Remove three clips in upper left corner

    To remove these clips you just need to pop out the center section and then pull the clip out of the panel. These clips should be easy enough to remove by hand, but you can use a clip removal tool as well.

    With the three clips out you can now gently pull back the two side panels to reveal the 3rd brake light connector.

    All we need to do is disconnect this connection and plug in the flasher device in between the two ends. To disconnect the connector, I found it easiest to grab a small flat head screwdriver, insert it between the male and female sides of the plug to push down the locking tab, and then twist to push the two ends appart.

    Plug each connector of the flasher into the corresponding connector on the car.

    Now we need to affix the flasher to the body. Peel the adhesive backing off of the fasher and stick it to the chassis of the car. This part is important to ensure the accelerometer can take proper readings.

    The last step is to reinstall the three clips we removed earlier. The clips won’t go back in easily unless the center stays popped out while you install them. You want to push the outer section of the clip into the hole, then lock them into place by pushing the center section in.
