Hi there ,good afternoon to you
Sorry for the delayed response
Ok to remove the high level brake light you need to remove the 2 grommets and using a thin flat screwdriver flick/push upward the metal tabs of the high level light and it will pop out
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know

Hi there. I have had a look and tried what you described, but not having any luck here. The LEFT had side door (as you look at the back of the van) only had one grommet and one hole to access the brake light, there are no metal parts showing through this side. The other side does have two grommets and pushing up and outward on the metal clip has not moved the lamp. Please can you give me more detailed information, or provide photos or diagrams to explain exactly what I need to do? For have not made this easy have they? :(

Brian,

Thank you, ***** ***** be a great help. Is it just the high roof option that gets a bloody tricky to get to situation with this? Or are they all like it? What a faff and a fiddle!

Hi there no worries I will post them later today
All the newer vehicles seem to have trims /clips that are all very fiddly and sometimes very tight to remove
we can continue on this same post
