Hi all, after some guidance if possible........

Was driving & warning notice appeared on dash "Left Side Rear Lamp" (yellow warning colour).

When I got home & checked it, the rear lamp was indeed not working but the right hand side was working fine.

It is some kind of LED strip (so it appears from outside) so I removed the complete assembly to find some kind of circuit board inside at the top. I am not sure if its this that is the issue here so I took some photos (see attached) then put the unit back onto the car.

I then tested it & the dashboard warning had gone so i checked the lamp & it is illuminated again although somewhat dimmer than the right hand side???

Any help as to what i need to do here would be much appreciated.
