Repair for LED strip that is out in headlight?

My passenger side headlight’s LED strip is out. I believe I have heard of others having this issue. It isn’t software related as I’ve had a couple updates since. I’m sure the service center would just replace the entire headlamp assembly. I’m looking for a solution to repair it, if it makes sense to. I do not have any warranty coverage from Tesla. I outlined above the strip in black.

Yes, it gets replaced by Tesla with an updated part number that presumably doesn't have the issue.

Not sure of your circumstances and why you don't have a warranty, but I think you'll either need to pay tesla to do it or purchase the assembly and do it yourself. I believe it requires removing the bumper to replace.

Here is the new headlight part number that they replaced my defective unit with.
