    Default Signum 3rd brake light.

    The right side of the 3rd brake light has stopped working.

    Are these a sealed unit, or can the bulbs/leds be replaced seperatly?

    Are they bulbs or leds?



    I need to take all the back apart to sort out the boot microswitch anyway, so might as well sort this at the same time!

    just had it appart.

    They are surface mounted LED's, so have to replace the complete unit.

    Thing is if they are leds surely only the "duff" one would not be working. It makes me wonder if there is a bigger problem making the "unit" stop working?.

    it is just a couple of the leds that have stopped working. As stated in top post.

    Still strange that more than one has gone at the same time.

    I'd say there's a resistor in line (feeding) with those LED's and that is what's blown.
