Rear Red Side Marker Light

My rear drivers side side marker light is out.

Am I correct in that the front and rear side marker lights, the ones along the wheel arch trim pieces, have to be fully replaced when the light goes out? There’s no individual bulb I can buy to replace the burnt out one with?

I pulled back the wheel well lining and look at the unit and it seems that the plug connects to the entire red housing, which I’m assuming is sealed with the light inside of it.

Anyone have any experience in dealing with a burnt out bulb in one of these?

There is a clear bulb in each side marker that can be relaced. If I remember correctly, you twist the connector to remove the bulb. I replaced my arches with the Euro JCW versions, which do not have side markers (Florida has no vehicle inspections, so I am fine). I simply took out the bulbs and tucked the connectors out of the way.

I’m not seeing anything that twist. It’s a simple connector that plugs into the back of the light housing. Makes me think that the entire unit needs to be replaced vs being able to simply change the bulb.

If you look at a parts diagram it doesn’t show a bulb fitment for the front and rear markers but it does for the side turn signal marker.



I’m perplexed. lol

I am quite certain that the bulb itself it replaced. The notion that an entire light assembly would need to be replaced does not make any sense.

Its LED for the F56+ MINIs, so either it failed or the wire or circuit is damaged. Its all one piece.

Yup
The whole piece at $40!!
But check the connector first, also that you are getting 12V at that connector, before getting one.
