Spoke to pug today an they have said that if they find it to be a fault then they will
Replace unit under warranty ...

But if they find it due to wear or tear they I'll have the bill .. Unit costs around 165 pounds then labour to fit



I'm on my second RCZ and had that fault with the first one alas out of warranty so had to buy one . The price was £114 52 in 13/12/2013 and decided to fit it my self.

You have to remove the boot lid liner , which is held on with plastic push in buttons and can be removed with a flat blade screwdriver . The brake light unit is held on by two 10mm nuts undo these and unplug the light unit job done it's that easy .

i'm still no further on with this issue. i went to see an electronics guru and he was no help. back to the drawing board or part with some cash :eusa-think:

on another note did anyone see steve's (rcz performance) flickering brake light mod in Yorkshire last month? Very cool :thumbup:

Hello and welcome to the forum. You can indeed purchase a replacement and fit it yourself and if you read this very thread you can find the part number and price but it's quite an expensive item I'm afraid.

Looks like I'll be using this forum quite often as there seem to be a lot of gremlins with this car. Shame Peugeot don't own up to obvious problems and agree fixes as its a beaut to look at and drive.

My rear brake light LED's were missing a few dud bulbs but my dealer told me if my car was in warranty then he would be pledging to have it replaced under warranty. Is your car still in warranty?

GSF Car Parts have these Led lights in stock. They are genuine but offer a modest saving over the dealer price. Renegade - there are two GSF branches in Dublin. Also many branches in England, Wales, Scotland and N.Ireland.

Hi,

Does anyone know where can I find a replacement, please? It can be used, I don't mind. The price at the dealership in Cambridge is out of reality.

Thanks!

See above posts.

If you get a replacement, find someone who is good with electrics/electronics and see how much to replace the damaged leds as you can then recoup some of the cost by selling, or alternatively you can sell the one after replacement and let the next person repair it.

Can you actually replace the individual leds or not?? If you took it to a auto electrician? Only got the two out but it’s just annoying

Ive been looking for a second hand unit to have a go at repairing but people are wanting ridiculous prices even for faulty units. LEDs are easily available the problem will be splitting the original unit to get inside then resealing but I reckon it’s doable.
If anyone has a dud unit they’ve replaced and they want shut drop me a pm. :thumbup:
