high mount third brake light

parts.com has a slightly different price for 2003 and the 2007 w/ or w/o the sl65. I thought these lights were compatible for all years. I hate to be a stickler over a couple bucks, but the '07 light is a few bucks cheaper. are they the same light(s)/compatible? I just want a red one. also, do you know if the purchase from parts.com comes w/ the weather seal?

Dont know about the price diff. but when I bought mine (the 2007 w/Sl65) it had the weather seal already installed.

When I bought my replacement the weather seal was part of the new light.

Is it common for these to go out?

maybe.. depends on the seal and etc... mine was cracking for whatever reason and on day after taking a drive it was miraculously missing.

anyways, anyone got a walkthrough on the install?

Details sent, I included the air bag for the steering wheel, once the bag is off you just have to remove the center bolt with a 10mm hex key,, best done with an impact air gun.

Do not turn on the ignition with the Air bag unplugged or you will need STAR to turn off the SRS lamp
