Wow, honda finally came out with a fix for the third light. Only time will tell if this one will fall off or not. Maybe they used a new type of glue.The dealer fixed the 3rd brake light cover on my Civic this afternoon. Honda fabricated a new bracket for the fix, and they claim it will not come off again.
I also just noticed this problem on my 2016 Coupe which only has 300 miles on it as of today, I purchased the car in the middle of May. Hopefully they can come up with a better cure then using glue, glue doesn't seem to be working too well!I read in another forum that this is an issue with the coupe. Here is the post:
My 3rd brake lamp cover on my Touring Coupe came loose on the left hand side after the first 1000 miles *and* a trip to Death Valley. I could have claimed warranty but I generally don't like anyone else working on my cars. I too thought that the Scotch mounting tape from Autozone would do the trick. It did until the window got hot from the sun and I was going over a rough road. The issue seems to be heat. After checking out the specs. of the various Scotch tapes online I ended up buying Scotch #4008 for it's high temp. spec. This part might be overkill but I used the tape in combination with Scotch 3X extreme Velcro fastener from Home Depot. This will add a slight thickness over the original material holding up the cover so the cover is slightly lower but it still seals. After 3000 miles the cover is still holding strong. I suspect that there will be more coupe owners reporting the same problem.
