    I thought it was simple bulb out issue above the license plate but on replacing I find that the problem persists and that the left light will not work. I have swapped the unit from the right to the left. So I guess it is wiring but where do I begin? I suppose the first job will be to look under the tool inset area (I have a 323 coupe) - stupid question 1 - how do I get the covering panel off without mangling the plastic fixings?

    Even if I get the cover off are there any joints in that area?

    Fuses have been checked, one covers both license lights and is fine.

    It occurs to me I could simply pair off the wires that do work and create a new branch - would that be okay?
