confused Help! Can I repair my rear L.E.D light on Ford Focus Hatch

The middle part of the light has gone out about 3 rows. Can it be repaired? Picture attached. Ford Focus LED chrome lexus lights. Led lexus tail lights emarked for the ford focus
They came when I bought the car. I can't afford to buy a whole new housing!

Re: Help! Can I repair my rear L.E.D light on Ford Focus Hatch

LED lights are generally soldered onto a board. It's inevitable that some of the lights will burn out before others. Your best bet is to replace the unit instead of trying to replace the individual lights. I'm sure the unit is sealed along the outer edge to keep moisture out, which would make replacing the lights all the more difficult. You could always install OE rear lights for an undoubtedly lower cost. I'm betting that the LED lights have some sort of resistor pack installed so the signal light doesn't flash fifty times per second. In that case if you go back to OE with incandescent bulbs, the resistor pack will have to be removed if it isn't already built into the light.

Thanks. How would I go about installing OE lights? I have 2 of the old casings but not the cables, lights etc. My MOT is due and I can't get it done without working lights!
