    Default Rear Hatch Lights Plug

    Vectra Estate. Offside inner tail light went out on me last night. I removed all the hatch panel and replaced the bulb. This made no difference. On closer inspection the bulb dimly fades in and out.
    I removed the little black plug that feeds all 3 bulbs, cleaned and WD40;d it and clipped it back. It's fixed it, but the plug has corrosion on it.

    Can someone please post me a link for a correct replacement

    Thank you
    Paul.

    Sounds like my problem, tail lights on the driver side are dimmer than the ones on the passenger side, swapped the bulbs over and see that the bulbs are fine, dim bulbs brighten up on the passenger side and passenger bulbs end up dull on the driver side. They also appear to flicker a little, fading in and out - I'll take a look at that cable tomorrow and if I manage to get it sorted I'll post you something, let me know how you get on buddy

    You can get replacement bulb holders for the estate individually (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2509239602...84.m1423.l2649) but not sure about replacing the plug seperately.

    Get a tiny file set from the likes of Aldi an gently clean the corrosion off and use some contact cleaner too.
