So been trying to figure out this problem now...my rear tail light (running light) is out. Replaced the bulb, nothing. Checked with multimeter, 13.35 steady when headlights are on, 0 when ignition off. Left the new bulb in when I went out the other day and checked it when I got back, and the bulb was hot. It's only on 1 side that it's out (right) and the front fog light is also out on the same side of it makes a difference but I'm not overly bothered by that as I am getting fog covers anyway. However my MOT is due at the end of July and I believe the running light being out is a failure...

Hey bud. By you description maybe the connection between bulb holder and bulb is not very good or daft question, are you sure it's a 12v bulb and not a 24v? Just something to check

Positive is a 12V bulb. It was the original bulb in place when I pulled it. Looked a bit heated on the end, so I replaced it. Took it into a local shop and gave them it and they gave me the new bulb to match...

Have you checked where the bulb sits, sometimes there is a build up

From a mechanics point of view.....

Have you tried a hammer? Lol

 

On a serious note, the lower connection in that pic looks to be pushed in
