120 d 07 plate help with rear side lights

Hi There
I normally post on the 3 series forum, but my friend has a 120d on 07 plate, the o/s/r sidelight is out, (lights the three bars up in the cluster), I had a quick look, am i right in saying the rear side light is LED, if so does this mean there is a fault with the cluster itself.
Anyone seen this problem before. Any advice appreciated thanks

You are talking about the read tail lights? Those three LED tubes inside of the tail light - they go bad all the time. There is a service campaign (not a recall) on the tail lights. They need to be replaced. IF the car is still under warranty... BMW will pay to have them replaced. Both sides should be replaced. IF you car is out of warranty... you should see what BMW will offer you as "good will" policy.

IF your friends car is out of warranty... those tail lights aren't that expensive. You can even update to the new 2012 style "tubes" for $160 each tail light.
