Today I noticed that the left rear light in the cargo area did not light. When I removed the housing I found that the electrical lead had disconnected and fallen out of sight. (Yes, probably not secured properly when I swapped out the halogen bulbs for LEDs). Anyway, I tried to fish the wire lead with no success. I was wondering if anyone has had the rear panel removed. I think the cup holder piece needs to come off first, but not sure.

endoscope camera might be helpful in locating the wire without having to pull the panel. it also has hook attachment that can be used to pull the wire.

no problem...let us know how it works out
I got the endoscope from AliExpress and it didn't help me find the light socket wire. I tried several times and the flexible camera wire and the camera's high resolution made it too difficult to trace or even see the wire location. I think the wire fell behind a larger harness. I am going to take it to a body shop, which I should have done in the first place.
