Exclamation Boxter tail lights not working

Hi, got a 2003 Boxter a year and a half ago and last week the driver's side tail light stopped working. Changed the bulbs and nothing... Ordered a new housing for the bulbs and the same tail light bulbs are not working. Reverse, break and signal do work. Any help is greatly appreciated! Do you know which fuses should I check?

Is your front side marker illuminated? I had the same symptoms a few months back... tried many lights... noticed the front driver side marker out... replaced... all tail lights worked.

Cool, I'll see if the side marker is working, if not I'll replace the bulb, hopefully it works! Thanks so much for responding!
