Number Plate lights by davidarnold

I have been able to obtain on Ebay a new rear number plate light unit.

Mine was an MOT failure point and is being replaced. The old one broke up on removal and is difficult to repair so bit the bullet.

They do not break up on removal, the person removing it breaks it through inexperience or heavy handedness. They are removed safely and intact if handled carefully, I have repaired many of the PCB (Printed Circuit Board)'s. When you say "Being fitted" I assume you did you break it yourself. Make sure none of the plinths plastic securing points did not "broke up on removal" also.
If at first you don't succeed, hide the evidence.

Steve repaired mine on the ZT, carefully removed as said and resoldered, my issue was the contacts which the bulb slot into had come loose on the pcb over time , now as good as new

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

That's by far the most frequent problem Rob. The OEM contacts were riveted.
