Need 3rd brake light for z26

Postby Cam2363 » Fri Jul 20, 2018 3:38 pm

Anyone have a spare 3rd/center brake light cover in good condition they would sell for cheap?
I have a 96 beretta Z26

I need the cover only

Thanks!

It may help to specify which type of 3rd brake light you need.
There are 3 different 3rd brake lights for the Beretta depending on the package.

lol its all good. I only mention it so it helps you find one faster. :)

I'll keep an eye out if I find one. The Z26 spoiler brake lights are hard to find.

If your red plastic part is in good shape, the grey back reflector part can be cut off carefully and you can retrofit LED strips into the red plastic.
I did it once with bright LED strips from advance auto parts. I used black RTV silicone to carefully glue them in the back of the red plastic part, its nice because it can be pulled apart if needed, or if better LEDs come around later.

I didn't mention this either lol. But my cover is damaged and was repaired with that yellow gorilla glue, so it looks terrible. I just want the cover

Thats not good. Yah they can break easily if they become brittle.

Try this web site:
http://www.car-part.com

Search for 1990-1996 Chevy Beretta "Third brake light", then select with spoiler after it comes up, then you have to sort through the listings.
Hopefully someone local to you has one you can get.
The models with the 3rd light are GTZ or Z26, sometimes a Base had a spoiler like my 96 Beretta did from factory.
The GTU Beretta spoiler had a different style lamp bezel that won't work.

Thanks for all your help. I took a look and its just too much for me to spend on such a small thing.

Yah some people charge a lot for some stuff online.

Dont give up, there is also the chance a member might have one they can sell for a good price.

Slanted the same as well? fits flush with the exterior?

If that is true, then the only difference is it fits 5 bulbs instead of 4 in the same exterior size.
