Going back to regular 3rd brake light from spoiler light.

I have a quick question here. I bought my car with the rear spoiler installed from the dealer and the line for the 3rd brake light obviously leads to the spoiler rather than to the traditional 3rd brake light. I once tried seeing if the wiring to the traditional one was there and it wasn't. What I would like to know is how do I make the connection or the modification to go from the spoiler light back to the regular 3rd brake light?
I'm doing this since I kinda don't feel like buying a new spoiler to replace the broken one. Let me know any suggestions that exist for me. Thanks for the attention!

if your car came stock with a spoiler with the brake light,Than you gotta buy the harness for the 3rd brake light to add into.The plug is there just no harness.

follow the harness from the spoiler back to the connector. the harness runs along the drivers side. once you find the connector, disconnect it and the piece that attaches to the spoiler harness will be able to plug back into the bottom of the 3rd brake light in the cabin.
