T5 Post Icon Number plate lights

Has anybody any experience with T5 number plate lights ?. I've got the tailgate model, but I suspect the arrangement for barn doors is the same. I'd got one of the two lights not working, so I thought it would be a 2 minute job to replace the bulb. The bulb holder slots into contacts, one of which is spring loaded but they don't seem to make contact. Bulb is OK & there is 12v on the pins in the body part. I faffed about for about half an hour yesterday and am resigned to taking off the interior door panel to get behind were the number plate lights are then hard wiring the bulb holders. Has anybody got any alternative suggestions ?

Thanks

John
