Mine fell off as well, found it in 2 pieces split in the middle on a parking garage floor behind my car. This happened when the car was about 2 weeks old, while I was on my Euro Delivery trip, dealer took care of it when the car came in.

I have no clue if they fixed them on the 09s.

It seems to be a recurring problem. The dealer told me there were some in the showroom with a cracked light. Some of the cars in the showroom are 09s.

If it happens to you, get it fixed, and make sure you tell them not to put the screws in too tight!!!

I noticed my 3rd brake light has cracked down the middle last week. The car's 5 months old. Then did a search and found this thread. Hope it's not a recurring problem.

Mine also broke. Was fine when I got home and the next morning the lens was on the driveway. The dealer tried giving me a hard time about it but finally agreed to replace. Hopefully it doesn't happen again.

My Third 3rd Brake Light Cover Brakelight Broke or Cracked and is gone too. I'll attempt to contact my SA and have him check the Technical Service Bulletin Bulletins TSB about this issue. I'll post again when I have an outcome regarding warranty coverage.

Tossing one more in the pot. Took a year, but it finally cracked all the way and was sitting behind the car's parking spot. Should be getting it replaced tomorrow.

Dude, you lost yours? Mines still hanging on there. I'm taking my car in next week for an oil change so I will have them look at it. I figured I'd lose mine before yours.

This just happened me today, walked out to the garage and half my cover is laying on the floor, already scheduled an appointment for tommorow. It looks as though the cover is connected to the third brake light, so I guess there is no way to just replace the cover, have to replace the whole light? Anyways, the list of crap that I have to get fixed on this car grows on.....
