I installed a spoiler (OEM spoiler) on my 2001 today, but after wiring it to the brake lights I discovered(I'll just say I forgot) that its lit with the parking lights also. Are there any wires asscoiated with the third brake light in the trunk area so that I do not have to remove the interior trim to make this a clean install? By the way, this was a fairly easy job with the exception that I have to go back rewire it to the third brake light. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I searched this site, E46fanatics, and 22 pages of google without any luck other than general instructions.

46 views and not one comment. Even a "It's a black and yellow wire." would have sufficed from the guys with a service manual.

For all that may want to put a spoiler on themselves, as it is not that hard, The black/yellow wire and ground wire(Brown) from the third brake light comes down the passenger side C-pillar behind the seat. There is a grounding block right next to the bundle of wire and it takes a pin connector to connect the ground wire to that block or you can connect it to one of the five ground wires that connect there if you have to. Hardest part is routing it through the rubber boot from the trunk lid to the trunk itself.

Pics will come later after I upload them.
