Replacing High Mounted Brake Light Bulb 2011 Hatchback

OK, I give... How the heck do you get at the 3rd brake light bulb on a hatchback?

Most vehicles have an access port or panel but I don't see anything like that on the inside of the hatch.

Service manual says remove the inside top trim above glass, it snaps in. Then disconnect the harness and remove two nuts to pull the entire assembly. According to manual the LED bulbs cannot change, you change the entire unit. It says to seal the assembly with something when going back in or water leaks.

The high-mount brake light is an LED array if I recall correctly? What year model do you have?
