    Silly question, but have you checked the bulbs?

    Is there any water in your rear footwells?

    hi m8.

    the rear footwells are dry.

    the light didnt work when i got the car and i thought it could be the bulb but then the other day is started working and now it doesnt.

    i will check the buld to make sure

    Probably a dodgy bulb and/ or connection I imagine?

    I had it in my A4, a sharp tap on the outside of the lens would bring it back again. I just squeezed the sides of the bulb holder so it clamped the bulb a bit tighter. Job done :thumbsup:

    Could be the old water in ECU problem, a long shot as you'd probabily get more issues with locking n windows etc but worth a check.

    Check under the carpet as the inner footwell and outer (bit under carpet) are sealed watertight
