    EU rear light problem

    My eu spec car has a problem with its right rear light.

    The indicator works. But the red part is working intermittently.

    Is this a light or control unit issue. ? Thanks

    No- its pretty much always hot (I am based in the UAE). Its a recent issue but is becoming more and more common

    I guess it will stop one day but it can take days, months or even years before it will break down. Because it looks like a heat issue it will happen in the UAE sooner than in the mild climate of Holland.
