If no such water leak is identified, the dealer will install the Center High Mounted Stop Lamp Repair Kit FREE OF CHARGE. If the aforementioned water leak is identified, the dealer will (1) either install the Center High Mounted Stop Lamp Repair Kit or a new Center High Mount Stop Lamp Assembly, as appropriate; and (2) clean and/or replace interior components damaged by the aforementioned water leak, as appropriate, FREE OF CHARGE.
