    Default Discovery 3 High Level Brake Light Replacement

    Hi Guys

    MY high level brake light hasn't been working for some time... is there a fuse one can check?

    My Indy has mailed to say that they can't replace it and I have to go to a body workshop or a glass fitment centre as it has to be cut out.... it has previously been cut out before...

    Has anybody on this forum replaced this high level brake light themselves?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    You will have to check in the manual where is the fuse. If ok, check for any obvious broken wires.
    I have not removed mine before, and it would be interesting to know if the light can be removed.

    Apparently the light needs to be cut out... they use the same process as removing a windscreen....

    There does not seem to be a seperate/dedicated fuse for the High Level Brake Light.

    It is possible for water to have entered the light and corroded some wires seeing work had been done there previously. Worth a check?

    There is a fuse box at the back, passenger side, behind the side cover where the tow hitch is kept,near the tail light, it has 6 fuses and the top one is for brake lights, 7.5 Amp. If that blows you will not have any brake lights, it is not split between the clusters as the park lights.
