cool Rear lights on ED

ey all,

Got a pretty common problem (Drive side brake lights dont work)... ive repeatedly got it working again, as it is just a loose connection (bulb and all is fine)... however, it will always come loose again. Any suggestions and how to keep it working.

Re: Rear lights on ED

check that it is not the plasic holder thats cracked...
Failing that with a small screw dreiver raise the contacts inside the bulb holder higher so they push the locating tabs on the bulb tighter into the groove

Re: Rear lights on ED

What makes you say its common?
ive had my ED for 6 years and never had it happen.
Small adjustment of the contact should do the job nicely.
