    Hi all!

    Is it possible to replace a blown or broken LED in an LED Rear Light Unit?
    Also how much are they to replace?

    Many Thanks

    Hey,

    I had the same problem not so long ago, one of the LEDS had went on me. I had searched around the internet and quite a lot of people said you need to replace the whole unit and some said it is possible to carefully split and reseal. I got my replaced by Audi for free, so if the car is still under the Warranty I would be giving Audi a call.

    Usually sealed units, not worth opening, repairing, then sealing as water always gets back in.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I saw some cheap units on ebay with an LED light broken, so I will give them a miss! Cheers!
