The two sides are fused seperately, there are two red wires that come to the
back, one for each side.  If the front that side is working OK then check
the appropriate red wire at the fusebox (3rd fuse up) and the mass of
connectors nearby that feed the rear.  If neither front nor rear works check
the fuse.

Check the ground connection to that cluster.

  The main tail cluster grounds through its body fixings, the side-marker
should have a black ground wire to a 4-way connector with the reversing
lights, and the fuel pump on the right side only.
