    Default All lights, rear passenger side, not working...

    Hi Guys,
    Just had a funny time, figuring why none of my passenger side rear lights worked. Took me a few minutes, in the semi dark, to figure that the plastic connector may be the culprit. Wiggling the cluster around got them to work, intermittently, so I persisted...Eventually got the plug off and one of the terminals seems to be corroded, and possibly the plastic terminal holder a bit melted. It's really very small, so quite hard to judge. I scraped both a bit with a jewellers screwdriver, gave a blast with Contact Cleaner and now all good again. I will need to keep an eye on them though. Just a heads up to others, and asking if anyone else may have seen this?

    It would probably be best to replace the connectors. There is a very good brand I've just started using which is weatherproof and easy to fit.
    I bought a kit thru EBay produced by HiPo Parts. They also sell male and female connectors separately and aren't expensive.

    I'd be into it with a pair of side cutters, soldering iron and some heat shrink tube like a flash.

    This is a cheap, permanent and guaranteed repair.

    Ummm, I tried really hard not to bugger up my post, but still achieved!
    It's a 2007 facelifted 307, diesel, not that that matters.
    Pugnut, I searched high and low on ebay for the connectors, what chance a link?
    I could do the solder thing, but what happens when/if I need to change the cluster? I'm liking the idea of a new connector set.

    Thanks mate.
    I did in fact find those, but the Delphi threw me as I thought you'd said HiPo..
    I believe I may have found the culprit in my brake switch, it needs adjusting, as sometimes the brake lights stay on when foot not on pedal...this may also be why I cannot start the CC, either that or the clutch pedal switch...

    Thanks a lot I'll get onto it...
