    Hi I've got an A3 that i took for MOT. It's failed on the reg plate lights which aren't working. The fella at the garage said it might but the unit behind. But I really don't know can anyone help or do it need to change it??
    ??
    Is this a common fault?

    Have you checked the connections and contacts? Sometimes they can scale over a bit, scratch it off, maybe this will get a better contact. Or a loose wire? Seen the units on Ebay not too dear at worse case.
