High Mount Third Brake

 

This automotive "how-to" instruction guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 2006 Dodge Caravan in replacing a burnt out high mount third brake light bulb.

Owners of other fourth generation Dodge Caravans, Grand Caravans, Chrysler Voyager or Chrysler Town & Country minivans from 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007 may also find the guide to be useful.

The only tool necessary to replace the high mount third brake light on a 2001-2007 Dodge Caravan is a small "Torx" screwdriver.

A replacement "high mount stop light" bulb from Sylvania or other manufacturers is part # 921. If you plan on keeping your minivan for a long time, choose a "LL" or "Long Life" bulb.

Small Torx Screw
To access the high mount third brake light bulb in a 2001-2007 Dodge Caravan you'll need a small Torx screwdriver. I'm not sure of the exact size screw driver. I'd recommend buying a set of Torx screwdrivers since Torx screws are commonly used on a variety of automobiles.

Removing Torx Screws

With the Torx screwdriver, gently remove the two Torx screws by turning the screwdriver counter clockwise until the screws completely come out.

Pull Out Stop Lamp
Put aside the two Torx screws in a safe place. Then slowly pull out the entire third stop light assembly. Turn the housing around to face the front of the minivan so that the light bulb socket and power connector are facing towards you.

Remove Socket & Bulb
To remove the light bulb, socket, and power connector from the assembly, turn the black and grey base a quarter turn counter clockwise. Then pull the socket and power connector straight out from the third brake light housing. To remove the bulb from the socket, just pull it straight out. If it seems stuck, try wiggling it back and forth slightly while pulling straight out.

To finish the procedure, just reverse the steps above. Push in the new # 921 light bulb, insert the socket into the housing and turn a 1/4 turn clockwise, insert the third brake light housing back into the cutout hole on the minivan's trunk lid, and gently screw in the two Torx screws. Don't over tighten the two Torx screws or you may crack the amber colored plastic lens cover.
