The rear hatch panel lights on the left side are flickering, kind of like there is a short in them. Anyone else have this problem or know what to do about it?

Owners manual lists the bulb as a 1600XB with a list price around $29 last I looked & is nothing more than a 168 bulb with a slight blue tint (kills some of the yellow and gives a whiter color output). Around $7 for a pack of two at local auto parts store. (Spray a little blue tint in it if you need to make an exact match).
Pull the fixture and see if the socket connections are good (not corroded or burnt). If OK, change the bulb. If not (corroded or burnt) I would buy a new light fixture.
You can pick up a light fixture here for $15: http://www.fordparts...r-lamps,,13776C

Mine has the same problem.... of the four "rows" of light, the top LED and the bottom LED on the far left side occasionally flicker and go off... I am wondering if anyone has removed the fixture from the rear hatch and attempted to replace the LED's.... knowing Lincoln, they suggest replacing the entire fixture... that's how my Mark VIII was.

The rear liftgate panel light is a sealed assembly. I suppose you could use a dermal tool and cut it open, and replace the two weak LEDS. (I would replace all six just to be safe).
All six LEDS are wired in parallel, so a failure of one or would be limited to just those LEDs.
If you decide to replace the assembly, there's one currently on ebay for $190.
Never seen any posts on the Web for repairing one of these.
