Reversing Lights ?

Bit of an odd problem on my "02" Wagon.
Left hand reversing light works OK. Right hand one doesn't. Checked and replaced the bulb (weird capless type) but still no go. Doesn't appear to be any supply. Wires look OK? Where do the wires run back through the car. I'll have to check them out, further in I suppose.

under the plastic trim where the boot opens fella
Have you got a little 12v/continuity tester you can use to check continuity to the shell(ground) and the pin for 12v ?
Swap bulbs across dont just trust a new 1.

Most cars only have one reverse light, don't they ?

Not uncommon for one to be a blank though ?
