Default Rear running light not working but brake light works

Hey there,
First of all this forum rules! I've learned a ton about my new TDI. But I have a funny issue. I've noticed my right rear running light isn't working. The left one works fine. Here's the rub; the right rear brake, blinker, and reverse lights all work. I have new bulbs and even tried the bulb from the left side, no dice. What gives? I've thought about getting a replacement bulb housing, but since 3 out of the 4 work, what are the odds that the bulb housing is faulty? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Default Left rear running light not working.

I have the same problem, however, my left rear running light will not illuminate !!! All other lights- fronts, left and right and rear right work properly. Yes i have changed bulbs and swaped with good. No help. I would appreciate help with this matter. Thank You.

clean and inspect the bulb socket, be sure the bulb can contact both nubs and body
