They ship from a Canadian warehouse so the shipping is cheap!

Easy DIY.
Im on Rock Auto right now and it seems that only the ones coming from the US is TYC, the Canadian warehouse is stocked with a "Alternative Manufacturer" brand
For some reason the TYC is only $60 + $40 shipping (and some more for customs) and the ALT MF is $80 + $10 shipping
Should I pay more and get the TYC to ensure better quality.
Or did you still get TYC when you ordered from the Canadian warehouse?
Thanks!

Lightbulb Same thing - Tail light error

I had the same issue, I turned on my left signal and there was that fast loud clacking signal noise along with an error code. I still have my CPO warranty and Extended maintenance warranty but nothing covers the lighting. $400 something bill from the stealership. So I purchased Part Number: 63-21-4-871-753 from RMeuropean.com for just under $180! Should be a simple replacement involving 6 whole screws.

Sorry to bring back an old thread, but mine is starting to do this (error the other night but open the felt lining and hit the LED area from the inside it with a hammer fixed it, no joke it did) but worried about the long run.

So let me get this, the parts from Rock Auto is the entire taillight housing? so just remove the entire tail light housing by removing a few screws, remove. Plug in the new one, mount in back on the car and done right?

not bad for $53+ ship for the entire body rear housing or am i missing somthing?

That is correct it is the whole light housing.

The reason why the hitting part works is because there are bad solder joints.

I had this problem, just opened them and resoldered and replaced half the leds, opening them is a bit fiddly you need to be careful not to crack the lens.

After resoldering and closing them up witch plastic glue and silicone they've worked flawlessly for over 2 months and at least 10 car washes, and around 15 days of rainfall.

Garage List
Finally ran in to this issue... 70K on the dial for my 2009 335i Sedan LCI. Passenger side.

Just ordered these...

https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw...ll-63214871753

I've ordered from them before and the lifetime warranty has worked well in the past, figure the extra 30 or so bucks for the set will cover me if I have issues in the future.

Are you still looking for defective outer tail light? I just ordered a replacement for my defective driver side rear ("left") tail light, and a matching light to preemptively replace my passenger side.
