Default 2000 Camry - Spoiler brake light

My wife's 2000 Camry has a spoiler which I _think_ was installed at the
distributor (not at the dealer, and not aftermarket) so it's probably a
Toyota OEM part.


There is a high-mounted brake light bar in the spoiler consisting of about
40 led's. The majority of these are now dark. My question is: are these
led's individually replaceable? Are they small bulbs, or will I have to
replace the light bar as an assembly (I hope not, since I have a bad heart,
and when I hear what Toyota wants for the light bar, I'll probably have the
big one <g>)

Thanks,

Henry

If it is anything like other car brands, the entire lightbar is a
unit. Yes, they are pricey. You could try a junkyard. And since it
has to replaced anyway, you could remove it, give it a shake and see
if that helps. Check the soldering. Could be that some water got in
there and corroded the solder joints. LEDs are usually soldered into a
circuit board or a strip. Technically they are not bulbs.
Good luck.
