Faulty LED rear light

Post by AlexM » Thu Jun 13, 2019 5:38 pm

Happily driving along this morning and got a beep and check right rear tail light on the dash. I thought this was odd as the rear lights are LED’s as far as I know.

Looking at the back, the inner section (attached to boot) of the tail light is not lit. I opened up the inspection panel and water dropped out so looks like either a condensation or water ingress issue. Luckily the outer light still illuminates so at least have some tail lights.

Has anyone else had a similar issue? Will get booked in to dealer to investigate - but annoying nonetheless.

Definitely something the Dealer should sort out.

I had the same thing, took a picture of the lens full of condensation. It went in and new light assembly fitted all under warranty. It did make some pretty patterns when the brake lights went on. No trouble since

Thanks, good to know. Have booked in dealer for Tuesday and they have already ordered the part. Good job the outer still working or would not be able to drive in the dark.
