Change rear brake light Touareg 2003

Hi everyone! My brakelights all of a sudden didn't want to light and for I just couldn't find what the problem was. Well, after going through absolutely everything I finally came to the 3rd brake light, the center one and I noticed that a cable going towards the lighting house had been broken off. I cannot for the life of me find a video or guide on how to get to the lighting house for that center brake light.. Not for a Touareg 2003, only for 2004 and forward and unfortunatly it looks different then. Has anyone any tips on how to get into that lighting strip? Thank you.

I don't think there is any difference as 2003 was the launch model and the facelift didn't happen for 4 years after that.

When I have looked at videos it looks different. Im attatching pictures of how it looks for me with that panel removed. I cant find a way of accessing it.
