Hi.
My rear right cluster has failed, almost certainly due to water ingress. I’ve read much about this being a common fault and have dismantled, cleaned and dried inside without success. I know the connection is fine as the left side unit works when connected.
Can you buy replacement pcb boards for inside the lights?
If not, what is the cheapest replacement option? (I have tried suggested breakers/eBay etc)
Any for sale on here?
Thanks.

The RHS one is often the first to go. Never seen any replacement parts. I’ve only got them from Porsche. Carparts4less list them I recall.

Same thing happened to mine earlier this year. Ended up getting a replacement via OPC for about £435.

Problem with buy-in used is that you just dont know if they were removed for the same issue . these various threads about either removing a blue round tab to allow air to circulate or drilling small holes in the underside , lots have had success doing these things Thumb

There are a couple of black round stickers. No blue bits that I’ve seen.

The Slovenian ones are problematic and the German ones the updated hardware.

When dried out they can show as faulty at first. Mine cleared after second use.

I removed the round black stickers on mine (Dec 2009 car) as a pre-emptive measure, when the bumper was off for something else.

Didn’t see any blue tabs.
