Hello guys. I have a 00 A4 B5 Avant and I noticed today that my third brake light comes on when I turn on the lights and will not change whether I press the brake or not. The wiring at rear lights looks ok so I will remove the trim around the third brake light tomorrow but want to know if anyone has experience this before. Thanks

The high brake light should not come on with the lights. Only with the brakes. Power to the high brake light is fed off the left tail light. Although a wiring fault is a possible issue, I'd start by making sure you have the correct lamps in the tail light and that they're inserted correctly.

BTW, if any of the individual lights in the high brake light are out, replacement isn't too difficult. After removing the trim, you can remove the fixture. Then carefully pry the sections apart and replace with https://www.amazon.com/CEC-Industries-Bulbs-W2x4-6d-T-1-5/dp/B00JNF8LIG/ref=sr_1_2?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1491733383&sr=1-2&keywords=2723
