I will get onto that, had the misting problem as mentioned earlier in the post, seems pretty common. Thanks for the reply!

My little tip is whilst waiting for your new tail light to arrive take the old one out and put back in again then you will know where everything goes when the new one arrives

Hi Statto1505,

As everyone else has said, it's an absolute doddle to fit the light yourself if you have to buy it. Please, PLEASE don't hand your money over to the dealer!!

However, have you tried hitting the bottom of the base at all, kind of roughly where the bottom of the two screws is holding the unit in place? I know that sounds completely bonkers, but genuinely it does work from time to time! Mine has been behaving itself for a good few weeks now...you can see I have posted in here several times over the past 18 months

Otherwise bahamutzeta's excellent post in this thread (post 64) is another option to try out.

It's certainly possible you may not need to shell out any money at all if either of those solutions work.

Re: LED Tail Lights

Hi all,

I recently had this problem on my 2013 (63) Punto GBT. After visiting a number of vehicle specialists and electricians for their advice they came to the conclusion that it was due to the moisture build up within the cluster, which I understand is a common problem.

I decided to take the problem into my own hands. I removed the unit from the vehicle and dried it off with a towel completely. I then began to dry the unit out with a hair dryer, even removing the bulb mount and drying the inside of the unit out. I progressed to seal the unit with electrical tape to ensure no water/moisture could get inside. When fitting the cluster back onto the vehicle I also applied a few layers of electrical tape to the connections.

This seems to have resolved the problem, fingers crossed it stays like this.

I hope that this helps!

Yep, there are a few "fixes" which will all work to a certain degree!

Good news that it's sorted.

Hi, I have a 62 plate 1.2 punto easy. The same left hand side led tail went very dim. It has now been ok for the last 2 months after I hopefully found a cure. I took the unit from the car, and also unscrewed the bulb holder from the unit. There is a circuit board inline with the led which can be seen inside. So I drilled a small hole through the back plastic in line with the screw holding the circuit board in. Then after taking the screw out, the circuit board swings out. I only re-plugged the edge connectors and its has worked ok since. Worth a try as it cost nothing and just leaves a small hole in the back of the unit which makes no different to it.

Re: LED Tail Lights

Sory on my bad english.On my Punto 2012 yesterday it happened that the left led was barely shining. After I took unit from car, I tried to remove moisture with a hair dryer, and it works, the led now works normally. Thanks for the advice, I saved 50 euros for how much they are selling us on car scrap for the whole last unit

Re: LED Tail Lights

Interesting that its always seems to be the left hand side cluster that goes

Re: LED Tail Lights

Hello Everyone

Registered just so I could give feedabck.

I have a Fiat Punto Easy 1.4 purchased late 2012 which also had the left led on the back light seemingly go dead.

Mine's been dim for over a year and recently seemed to be completely dead. Yesterday as per reading this entire post I removed the fixture, disconnected the bulbs from the fixture and put them aside.

I then took a hairdryer and blew hot air over the back of the pcb which you can just see sort of in the middle of the fixture and then at the top on the led's moving the hair dryer up and down for a few minutes.

My light is now working again Full brightness, extremely happy. Just becareful I did slightly melt some of the plastic inside slightly (Don't let the hair dryer blow on one point for too long) but you would never notice once fixture back in place. Oh I did let it cool off as the fixture was quite hot to the touch when I was done (Hence melting ). I'm wondering now if there is a poor soldering job on the pcb as my light fixture unit had no damp or moisture. I live in South Africa which has predominately nice warm and sunny weather.
