Third brake light bulb

Does anyone know for sure if the third (high) brake light bulb is (or is not) covered under the 5yr/60k warranty? I have found reference to where for some years that the headlamps are but nothing on the brake bulbs. This is for my daughters 2010 Sonata.
thanx

There's only one way to know for sure. Badger the dealer about it.

And hope they know how to do it - since it is one well known major hassle to replace.

Headlight bulbs were part of the 5/60 in 06.....I don't blame you for wanting a warranty replace on this bulb. I've yet to replace mine after almost 8 years on the road. I never slow down....hahaha

Mine still works after over 7 years.

I've looked at all the videos and the posts and I still can't figure out how to replace that bulb without butchering both me and the car.

Called dealer - nope its not covered under 5/60. Covered under 1/12.
Quoted cost of $100 to replace. Said its not easy.
I guess that will be a job for me when the weather gets better.
Thats not required by law is it?
