    First time I had the rear light lens off.  Left rear brake light not working.  Found this – two sockets.  Does anyone else have this?  Moss only shows a single socket.  Any recommendation for LED replacement?  Thanks.

    Ricrx7. I also have two sockets on mine. Look in the sockets. The socket with two contacts is the tail/brake light combo. The single contact (mine is on top) is the turn signal.

    My double contact is running light and turn signal.  My single socket is the brake light.  This way the brake wiring does not go through the turn signal controller.  Allen, are your bulbs the same size physically?  Do you have MGTD light fixtures or VW light fixtures?

    There was a discussion started a few years back — http://tdreplica.com/forums/topic/led-parking-and-turn-signal-bulb-question— and revived last summer.

    I replaced mine and the new one is 100x better. The “flashing brake” is really nifty for such a small vehicle. Increases the visibility of when you are stopping.
