2001 BMW 325xi Q&A

2001 BMW 325xi Question: My back rear lights driver side started working intermittantly and now are out.

I have replaced the bulb housing a year ago but the bulbs burnt out recently. I tried new bulbs in all three sockets but did not work. There is a recall for this issue but it appears to be years 2002 to 2005. -
Answer 1

Answer 2
