This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 or 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt in replacing a burnt out "high mount" or "third" brake light bulb in the trunk lid.

Owners of other similar GM vehicles such as the Cruze, Impala, Malibu, Sonic, Lumina, Buick LaCrosse, Regal, Verano, Enclave, GMC Acadia, Yukon, Pontiac Grand Prix, G6, G5, Grand Am, GTO, Vibe, Sunfire, Oldsmobile Alero, Aurora, and Cutlass may also find this DIY guide to be helpful.

A replacement high mount stop lamp bulb for the '05-'10 Cobalt is part # 912 from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, PIAA and Eiko.

No tools are needed to replace any of the three bulbs in the high mount brake light assembly.

The first two steps are to open the trunk lid and locate the black plastic bulb housing on the under side of the trunk lid directly opposite of the red plastic third brake light lens cover.

To access the three 3rd brake light bulbs, press in on the two black plastic clips and gently lower the assembly down.
