I PM'd Ryan today to find out if this has been taken care of, and he tells me he has still not figured it out. Could someone tell us how to get at the 3rd brake light bulbs in a 95?

OK, I made a write up on this. I can't say for sure if your year is exactly like this. If it is, let me know and I'll note that in the write up. If not, I will look in to it further.

It was the same. I got to the bulb and changed it. Everything is working now. Thanks for the help.
