    Rear brake light out

    Hi. I have a warning on my dash saying right rear brake out. I took it out yesterday but the bulb is fine, I even swapped it from my left one.

    This happened a wee while back but went away. The car is under warranty with Audi, would This be a warrantable repair?

    Probably your bulb cluster getting corroded.

    Covered under warranty - had both sides replaced under warranty on my a6.

    Remove cluster, scratch the terminals on the connector & the headlight as it may have as chris states some corrosion, worth a go.
