3rd brake Light on wife's Renault Clio MK3

8
Found 15th Jan 2016
Wifes Renault Clio MK3 3rd Brake Light is very faint. Her car is a 2012 model and still in warranty. Does anyone know if this would be covered under her warranty as its an LED unit not a bulb as such?

if it isnt covered is it easy to replace? or does anyone know a rough cost to replace?

,As a 2012 model I would have thought manufacture warranty would have ended.Is this an extended 3rd party warranty or a Renault one.As this would make a difference.

​it's the standard 4 year Renault Warranty
If still under warranty, I'd give Renault a call in the morning. Might be a simple fault like a bad connection but could also be a bad earth somewhere along the line. Either way, try to get it done for free first. If not, Google and YouTube are your friend!
i would go for bad earth water prob got into it

​yes that's the part.
As suggested, Probably bad earth/connection.

Could try some electrical contact cleaner on the connection.

There's a brake related recall on clios, mine is the same shape and qualifies.
