Default Access to 3rd brake light?

Guys,
I bought the Porsche clear rear lights and clear 3rd brake light. Can anyone offer some guidance as to how to get to the 3rd brake light from the swap out?

Looks like it is held in place with a couple nuts, as the clear replacement has two threaded studs built in. Looks like you would pop the rear engine cover, then go from there. Car is a 2014 TTS.

I'd appreciate any help. Thank you.
Dave

Anyone? I can always have it installed at my Porsche Dealer, but maybe no one has installed the clears themselves yet?

Same deal here. The lower section is going to have to removed in order to gain access to the brake lamp screws also. I removed the fan and both wings. Removed the four torx bits below and no dice. The spoiler motor etc is all in there. On all the other 991 cars the lights must come out for the bumper. I can't even see how to get to them. Lol.

Pulled the diagram from Porsche. Remove the fans, remove the two inside torx bolts. There are two bolts under the upper spoiler tha allows it to slide off. The rest of the lower spoiler is held on with clips. I am going to tackle this in the next few days. I'll try and take some pictures.

Mike,
That would be very helpful if you would not mind posting some pictures. I can do this, just don't want to dive in without knowing how to do it.

There is a loose fitting cover on each upper spoiler strut that attach under the upper spoiler that I assume cover the bolts you mentioned that need to be removed. That has to pop off easily to allow access to the bolts.

I made a post on 6 speed. It was not hard at all.
