m135i Brake Light Broken

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Having an issue with one of my brake lights not working. The daytime running light works but when I brake the right brake light doesn't illuminate. There is also a brake light error message coming up on the dash. 

When I first got the car the issue came up pretty quickly so the dealer agreed to fix the bulb but the issue came back pretty quickly after. 

Is this a matter of just replacing the bulb again (as in the dealer put in a faulty one ) or could this be another issue requiring the full replacement of the light assembly?

Not necessarily the bulb. It may well be the bulb holder itself not making very good contact with the taillight strip. Rip it out and have a look when you check the bulb.
