Changing LED's in Brake light strip?

I noticed a couple of the LED's in my brake light strip thing are out. Is there anyway to change them?

Re: Changing LED's in Brake light strip?

If it's the same as the Gtv, they are normal bulbs (same as your front sidelights). Prise off the cover using a flat screwdriver, undo the 2 screws, remove the bulb holder and replace blown bulbs. If it's in the rear spoiler you have to replace the whole light unit.

On the Spider, it's quite easy, (manual roof), pop the hood cover up, an you see two nuts at the back of the light, undo them, and push the bolts through, the light unit will appear the other side, simply disconnect it, pull it apart (I cant remember if there's any screw) and replace the bulbs, standard dashboard bulbs.

I changed mine recently and found the connections to be a bit poor due to water ingress. If thats the case you can change the whole unit (like I did) for about 30 quid direct from an alfa dealer which isn't too bad.
