    I just put preface lift lights on my car this afternoon, bought second hand. The problem I have is the drivers side all works fine, the passenger side the brake bulb was blown so changed it using one from old cluster, and it doesn't work (brake light) now if I put the light unit from drivers side to passenger side the passenger side works and drivers side doesn't, I've tried all light units and its all the same out come, I've checked the brake fuse and that's fine, now I'm stuck to where else to go,

    any help would be great, a3 1.8 AGU if this helps

    Could this be the brake pedal switch?

    If the brake lights work on the drivers side and not the pass side, and if when the drives bulb holder is in the pass side it works then it can only really be the bulb holder is faulty, its late and im tried i hope i have read it correctly????
