Help please - Pre LCI E92 Taillight - Melbourne SE

So my rear LHS taillight isnt working.
Theres no error coming up on my display at all (which is most odd).

I've been doing some research on the forum and apparently the light that isnt working is in fact hard-wired LEDs or something stupid that cannot be fixed with replacement bulbs and requires a full taillight assembly replacement!
There is however a possibility that the connector has lost connection - and this is what I want to test out from another car.

Anyway, I'm looking for someone in Melbourne South-East suburbs who also has a Pre-LCI E92 who is willing to meet up for only 10mins.

Was hoping that someone could help me out, by simply meeting up and let me double check and compare my taillight components.

I'm very flexible with day/times and in no real rush - just prefer someone reasonably nearby about 15min radius from Springvale if possible.

Thanks guys!

Brace yourselves there is going to be a whole lot of E92 owners ready to dump their pre lci tail lights onto you :P

Yeah i had that exact same issue, luckily these days you can buy these tailights cheap! Silly me paid something stupid for a replacement and then bought LCI's 6 months later.

I highly doubt its a connection, unbolt both tailights and plug in the working tail light into the non working harness and vice versa and see what happens...

Yeah. I was reading some other threads that there could be connection problems between the light bulb holder and the housing - so thats what I would like to check first.

But I'm also open to ppl wanting to sell me their old tail lights too...
