Replaced driver-side puddle lamp. Blocking foil / whatever defined the silhouette was 100% disintegrated, only showed a blob on ground rather than mustang logo. Repair calls for full replacement of the bulb assembly, the cover or shroud alone is non-serviceable. Research shows this is a common issue, and it was present upon purchase (~9500mi). Supposedly the part has been re-engineered to last longer... we will see.
