    Check the connections to it, there may be some tarnish that needs cleaning off.

    I understand they CANBUS system normally throws up an error when the bulbs are about to blow, this is because the filaments are burning through and hence the resistance has reduced?

    may just be corrosion of the plug, a squit of wd40 might solve it. if not it maybe one of your bulbs in it has failed or is about to, if any use, i have a tinted one here from a 2005 sri that i am selling, looking for around £15 recorded posted for it

    take off the interior trim, either poppers or torx screws i would imagine, then you are looking at the rear of the light, 1 plug to remove, and if taking the light out alltogether, then push in the 2 spring clips holding it to the boot
