Are you talking about the center tail light above the spoiler? If so use a small screw driver to gently pry the cover on the right side of 3rd brake light then use that screw driver to turn the twist lock 90 degrees. Once removed unplug the wire. Cool?

the whole tail light

The only incandescent lamps left in the back of my 2001 C4 are the backup lights and even that was upgraded to 50 watt bi-pin halogen landscape bulb on the driver side. Front street/parking lights are LEDs, green LED normally flashes amber with front amber LED turn signal. DRL "bulbs" are also LEDs, 3 watt Luxeons with collimator lens.

Cruise control will not work with all LEDs at the rear unless it sees a high current load when the brake lights are off. Minature (dip) 12 volt relay normally closed contacts supplying "power" to halogen bulb only with brake light off solved that problem.

thanks porschinator...i'm having a hard time popping it off...don't want to break it but it's not opening

has anyone seen a replacement for the Turbo spoiler mounted tail light online?

I'd like to have a new light and gasket in hand as I destroy the original while taking it off

As a follow up:

the dealer has the light assembly which includes the gasket for 129.00

there's a clear one with red led lights on Ebay for 99.00

both include the gasket which is all i really need anyway but it can't be purchased seperately
