Default Third brake light delete cover?

Trying to find one of these third brake light delete covers for my '06 WRX. I've been searching, seems like www.cc-b.com used to be the place to get them, but now they're out of business.

Also found a site called JW Racing, but they're in Europe and to have it shipped to the U.S. the total would be around $80, a little high for me.

Any idea where else to get these? Do the ones from '04-'05 fit the '06's?

You're right, that's not what I'm looking for.

I'm looking for the plastic plate that will cover up the hole left by the removal of the standard 3rd brake light on the rear decklid.

Get a rear shelf from an Impreza that didn't have a 3rd brake light? Like an STi or winged WRX

I had the one from cc-b when I had my wrx. I totally forgot about taking it out when I traded it in. To bad CC-B closed shop they had some very good hard to find products from orciari. But I understand why they closed, I am sure it is hard to raise twins. Anyway back on topic try and search around for orciari parts IIRC that is who made my third brake delete

My friend's true winged 04 WRX did not have a 3rd light on the shelf. Mine did, however, after inspecting my trunk after removing the wing (was polishing the car), mine was in fact installed by the dealer.

Rather try and stay away from getting a whole new rear decklid, since the covers are only about $10; I'm sure a decklid is tons more.

I'll try and search around for who might sell Orciari.

In the meantime, any other ideas or leads would be appreciated.

booostfrk if you find out please be sure to post your results here. I just installed an STI wing on my 06 WRX and I'm looking to get a similar part to cover up the hole

I will. Thus far it doesn't seem to be an easy task.

Yea, my wing looks to have been factory installed, and i have the 3rd brake light in teh rear windshield. Im hesitant to remove mine because im constantly debating with myself over going wingless permanently and dont want to have to reinstall it again later.

Good luck finding one, or if your DIY'er just make your own

My 05 WRX did not have a 3rd brake light in the window but to my best observation, it seems that since the premium package came with a rear spoiler from the factory, the did not do the window 3rd brake light. Other cars had them because they may or may not get a wing installed at the dealer. I agree though that a cover has to be much cheaper than a new rear shelf. Keep searching!!

Not true. In 04 and up (not sure about 02 & 03) if the WRX came from the factory with the wing it did not have the 3rd brake light on the rear package tray. If the wing was dealer installed then it would have both. My 04 with the factory wing did not have the light. When I took off the wing I had to buy the 3rd light and cut a hole in the rear tray.

When I bought my 04 it said the wing came from the dealer on the window sticker and it came with a 3rd brake light on the rear deck.

eh, seems WRXs come with them and some don't.

Another option would be to find someone that'd went with a carbon trunk or wingless, and trade the rear shelf.

EDIT: Firts $ was wrong
Well I just called the Subaru Parts dep. For a factory STi shelf (3rd light delete) $134.00. My cost is a bit lower but not much because I work for a Honda dealership, thus I pay cost.

My normal Subaru parts friend dosent work weekends, the guy who answered the phone askded if a STi was a Cadillac? LOL I really did laugh at him. So Ill call back on monday and see how many he will let my buy at my price to re-sell to you guys at no extra cost if you want? Unless Jamie can give you a better price. Ill post back if Im given the OK

OEM Part #65510FE100OE

I would say that you shouldn't settle for substitutes or knock-offs. Either get an original factory rear decking or leave the third brake light in place.

BTW, I had my windows tinted and now you can't see the third brake light housing at all. So if you consider tinting you won't need to do anything else to the rear deck / third brake light assembly. Just remove it temporarily so that the tint shop can do their job.

Otherwise, go with Jamie at Subaru Genuine Parts.

Still on the hunt for this piece.
