Leave it burnt out and risk getting a ticket. You can't get the part
except from a Ford dealer.

Re: high mt. brake light

For a time after my neon tube shattered, I had one of those $19.95 LED light
strips INSIDE where the neon tube used to be. It lasted for three years
before I broke down and purchased the assembly from Ford for about $212.

Time to hit the junkyard. Lots of rollovers out there. Don't pay more than
25% of the price of the new part.

Once a car hits 5 or 6 years old I hit the junkyards. For instance:
Transfer case reman installed by dealer is 1,800 - 2,000. Junkyard or used
150 to 400 for the case. I'll install it for those kinds of savings.

Good luck!
