there is no bulb to replace. they are led's. my gt had a cobra wing and only half would work. if i tapped it the other would work. It is a common problem. you might be able to find them brand new i dont know honestly. you should see if by tapping it etc. and if that makes it work it is pry just a wire inside the lense or the wires that go to the led, but unfortunately it doesnt come apart. You could try taking a dremel or something and opening it up fixing it then epoxy it back together. That was what i was going to try but i decided to take the wing off and go wingless.

i honestly dont think that anyone makes them. Pry either have to find a good used one or maybe cut the back open and put in some new led's. I got one since going wingless but it dont work right either so it doesnt help any.

Go to a different inspection station, that is retarded. The third brake light isn't a primary brake light, I don't see why they are busting your balls. Try to explain to them that its an aftermarket spoiler or something?

Are you sure it can't be replaced, because mine has a small access hole under the wing.

The whole assembly can be replaced but you cannot just replace the led's inside of it or fix the wiring w.o cutting out the back or something. And i am pretty sure there is no one that makes new ones so options are cutting the back open and fixing it or finding one off someone else's car that decided to go wingless or junkyard (pretty hard to find i imagine)

Contact ABCExclusive about their repro 95 Cobra Wing with LED and see if they can throw you a LED. I mean, if they're repro'ing them they should have the light switches, etc.

:noes:

Yeah, apparently Ford says you have to buy the whole spoiler from them to get the LED brake light. I heard that somewhere and it can most likely be completely wrong. I know what you mean though. One of the LED's has been out since I bought mine and it bothers the crap out of me. I'm taking mine out of the spoiler (yes, it does detach via 2 screws under the spoiler) and handing it over to a good friend of mine's dad (whom is an electrical engineer) to replace the LED bulbs and possibly making a module to cause the LED's to "scan" when I hit the brakes (like "Knight Rider"). I know it sounds :lame: but i like the idea lol.
