2014 RS/SS, LED in Halo out ... replacement bulb?

One of the LED bulbs, on one side of my passenger side Halo is out. Seems odd, I thought LEDs would be more or less "lifetime" of car.

Has anybody replaced this? Based on another thread, it looks like it may require opening (baking) the headlights and replacing a board, but wasn't sure since that thread was about something else.

Only 25K miles, possibly a warranty item?

Did you figure out what bulb you needed and the process of changing it out

I have this same problem on my '14 2SS/RS 1LE. Curious if anyone has a fix other than replacing the headlight assembly...

Unfortunately, my warranty was up in August. Any ideas from others?

It does require baking the headlight in the oven to soften the sealant. Then pry the lens off of the housing. You have to buy more sealant to close back up after replacing the LED board.

That's a bummer, how many miles on the car? If you're going to take apart the headlight might as well upgrade to one of those RGB color halos from Oracle.

You don't need to bake the headlight it can all be done from the rear with the cover removed.
