Door light strip went out is this a simple fix?

So the light on my 2013 door panel went out. Is there any way I can fix this myself? I'm in Italy now so the list of trustworthy dealers slash mechanics is very small.

Pull the door panel and check the wiring.

Typically it's the single LED that is the problem whether it's a connection or burned out, I've only seen one go bad so far.

I tried to copy/paste the repair instructions but I can't get the pictures to appear and the instructions are pretty useless without them, sorry.

Thank you both for your reply. Paul if you could maybe point me in the direction of the source for the repair instructions that would be greatly appreciated.

Josh, here are the instructions on how to remove the door trim panel and how to remove the light pipe. I'm not sure you will need to remove the light pipe, the LED plugs into the end of the light pipe and is available in two colors for that year, red/orange and blue. Good Luck.
