Rear fog and side light not working

Hi there, both my rear fog and rear side lights on my 2010 Golf 2.0 TDI BMT have decided to stop working. At first, it just showed the warning message for the rear fog light intermittently, then both stopped altogether on Saturday. The bulbs and the fuse for these two are fine. Does anyone know if this is a known issue with the cabling or connectors? Is it something that can be fixed fairly easily. cheers

Prob should say that this is just the rear fog and rear side light on the right side of the boot cluster that are fitted into the boot lid itself. Both bulbs sit together on one mount.

You are probably looking for a loose connection, or a shorting wire. If a wire wasn't run properly, or has been relocated for some reason, it could be pinched, or rubbing somewhere. Intermittent issues are almost always a bad connection, or a shorting wire. Sometimes a bump in the road will move things just enough. Spend a little time looking at the wiring that is common for all the lights that are giving you issues, hopefully you won't have to dig too deep to find the source of the problem.
