Hi Everyone,
I have the passenger side rear fog light not working. I checked bulb holder with meter all good. I think the metal grid is shot as it has rust marks and not making connection to bulb. Has anyone converted back to wired build holder, and if you did can you please send me instruction on how you did it?

Thanks
Keith

Agree with Ard. Some models have both, some just a single light on driver's side.

Hi all,
THe hard brake light seems fine, it's the LED bars not lighting across the inner passenger side lens. Is there a fix or replace?
Thanks

That happened to me and I ordered a new tail light assem. off of Ebay. Plugged it in and it works. Make sure and get one with the self-adhesive gasket included. Good videos on YouTube on how to change.

Thank you, I think that will end up being the road to take. It seems LEDs just died, and no way to repair.

Thanks again , EBay is next stop

HI Ard,
Sorry you where right one buld in the inner panel. Th grid that is metal had some corrosion so I cleaned up , the LEDs lines that run across inner panel longer light up. From what I understand no fix, easier to replace panel.

It was break force light that needed corrosion cleaning, the LEDs inner tail light are crapped out. I apologize it wasn't rear fog light
