Default High Mount Center Brake light: PC175

What I would like to know is, can you remove the bulb from the yellow base, or do you have to replace the bulb and yellow base as an entire unit?

You can remove the bulbs from the base. This thread is about LED conversion, but you will be doing the same thing, just not using LEDs (unless you are asking, because you are converting - you didn't mention that)

Thanks for answering, and yeah I am converting to LED's. but I think I'm just going to buy some 194/168 twist-lock bases to put the LED's in. Cause I still want to use the original bulbs as backups just in case the heat from the sun does one of the LED's in. And for anyone else that reads the thread: the PC175 bulbs do not come out of the bases, you either have to buy new ones from the dealer or follow the instructions in the link above or buy new bases to put your bulbs in (LED or Incandescent).

That is actually where I got my 194/168 twist lock bases from. they do fit the 96-99 high brake mount just fine; only difference is that the aftermarket bases have to be twisted a little farther than the OEM bases to lock in.
