W126 tail light

Ok, my problem started about 2-3 weeks ago. At first, the reverse lamp on the driver's side would not work. I tried switching out bulbs from the rear fog light (the assembly is from a Euro version) since they are of the same wattage and size. That didn't work. Both bulbs are not burnt out, so I know it wasnt the bulbs. So about a week ago, the reverse light starts working again all by itself. On Thursday night, my tail light on the driver's side stopped working. I checked the bulb, it was not burnt out. I cleaned out the sockets, still not working. I even tried new bulbs. Nothing works. Has anyone here ever experienced this problem before, because I cannot drive at night or in the rain without the fear of being hassled by a police officer for having a light. I need to know what else I need to check, and if I need to replace the assembly or not, and how to fix it if I can.
