    Hi,

    I am having a problem my rear indicator. Actually it seems that all my rear driver lights are affected. I have a warning on the dash that there is an issue on the driver rear light.

    I take out the light and remove the connection and i can see a burnt connection.If i reconnect and press the wires at a certain angle then the lights work. I hold this with tape but its only a temporary solution. So it seems to be that this burnt.

    Question is. How do i fix this. i read of some people spraying WD40 will resolve.

    Any ideas on what needs to be done or replaced.

    One thing to note the indicator flashes at a fast speed when the warning is on the dash.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Mark

    Just an update. I have attached a photo of the damage. If you can see it. That pin is about half the size of the other pins and chared with soot around it. I cleaned the soot of and reconnected and with any adjusting the wires the lights seemed to work as normal.

    But is there anything else i can do to stop this getting any worse?
