Eyebrow LED lights

Has anyone experienced any LED light problems with the front eyebrows of the newer Montana's? It's a series of LED's rapped in a plastic sheath and inserted or glued into a specific groove on the front cap. I have 4 LED lights that are out in the center of one of the brows. After doing some investigating, the LED bulbs aren't actually burned out, instead, there seems to be a short in the circuitry or it's some grounding issue because when I press on a certain point, those 4 lights will sometimes go on momentarily, but it's unsustainable and they'll go off again. Even if I do find the defect, I'm not sure it's repairable and may end up replacing the entire eyebrow strip anyway. That may become another challenge, as it looks like the end of the strip is soldered in place. Before I do anything, thought I'd check with the MOC members.

Yep, replaced mine. Easy task, and the new LEDs are much brighter. There was a topic on here a couple weeks ago with a link for the replacement LEDs. Really is a simple task to replace.

It is labeled "Cap", and mine is on the electrical control panel by the stairs.
