I'd try new sockets for the bulb, you know the thing they sit in. I've heard numerious times about those going out on cars. And if their fine they shouldnt cost much to replace. After that I'd say your taillight assembly needs replacing, but thats gonna cost you if you want to keep the stock ones, if you didn't care how they looked, then you could find some euro's for like halfoff.
