2007 Mk 6 Fiesta Brake Light Access

4 posts in this topic

I have tried to replace my wife's brake light on a 2007 Mk 6 Fiesta. The manual as usual is useless in providing guidance. I have searched on this site and others for guidance and have read that there is a concealed wing nut behind the carpet inside the boot, however, I cannot find it on my wife's car. There is an access point to a wiring loom which appears to be connected to the light unit but no wing nut.

When I remove the 2 torx screws, the unit swings up slightly but seems to be held at the outside edge of the unit (the one away from boot seal).

Can anyone help with this, I am reluctant to pay a fortune for a simple bulb change.

Defiantly an Mk6 fiesta you have? Like the one in my signature?

Yep, and I have managed to replace the bulb. There were 2 pins on the outer edge of the light unit that needed to be carefully prised away from the body.

Yeah that's correct. They will come away easier next time. Glad you got it sorted
