Replacing my 3rd taillight ( the top one) on my 2007 hyundai sonada and this is turning into a bigger headache then I thought it would be. I have come to the conclusion that I need to take off the backseat trim and the dash from the back seat. So far I have been able to loosen most of it up however I am a little unsure and am hesitant being around the rear airbags without getting a real good look. Is disconnecting the battery enough to ensure these rear airbags won't accidentally be set off. Thanks for any help. I feel as though it is a rip off to have to pay $100 dollars to change a simple breaklight at the dealership. Also I have read random responses saying it should be simple and maybe for your model but not mine.

That panel over the center brake light should pop up giving access to the bulb.Book time is .4 to change.It should cost you under $40.00 to have it done.There are some good local shops in Lansdale instead of the Dealer.
