Givi top case stop light connection repair

I need to know how to disassemble the stop light connection in bottom of givi top case(e52). It came with used case and only works when wiggled a certain way. I hate(can't afford) to buy a new stop light kit when i think i could fix this if I could get inside it without tearing it up. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

If "wiggling" a wire makes it work - check for a LOOSE connection somewhere, but USUALLY near where you're wiggling.

When I had a setup like that, I had to occasionally clean the contacts on the rack and case, and push the contact on the rack up a little to make sure it had good contact with the case.

Thanks! Between cleaning contacts and finally getting into bottom case contacts to tighten the connections, my stoplights are now working.

I had Givi brand lights in a case before, and the wires were super tiny and kept breaking. I ended up soldering a larger gauge wire to solve that problem...
