    Unhappy Brake light problem. please help.

    hie guys. i got an astra mk4 03 reg and on saturday i was pulled by the old bill in their unmarked vectra (ex road wars ) and they said one of my brake light was not working, i got two bulbs and tried them but still it wont work. this is the passenger rear brake light. so i took the unit thing(THE ITEM THAT HOLDS THE BULBS) and swapped it with the drivers side rear and it works, and the drivers side unit works when i connect it on the other side. ive changed the fuse and still wont work.
    so where is the problem?

    Might be some connection loose somewhere. check your plugs, where u plug the wires into the holder, check they are lining up ok, or something

    If it works on the passengers side when you plug in the drivers side holder into the passengers side then it's you Bulb holder that is at fault check for corrosion on the connector and where the bulb sits also make sure the bulb is the wright wattage
