2005 idea 1.4 rear earth location? Rear lights

Hi all, can anyone tell me the location of the common rear earth point for the rear lights? The brake lights are coming in with the indicators etc. Thank you

Checke the contacts on the rear lights connectors first most common place for them to corrode
Other then that is like to be under the lining on the sides of the boot area

I've had the connectors out, cleaned them up and sprayed them, no real corrosion to worry about, also checked where the bulbs seat, nothing. Any idea what side it might be on?

@Zeewulf may have come across this

Bad airbag connector was my only issue.. so of no help

Idea: unplug 1 unit

Does the other side work better?

Process of 'yep.. you guessed it'
