You just loosen the big plastic wing nut, pull back the inner half of the tail light assembly, and remove the offending bulb by turning it an eighth turn counterclockwise.
These instructions from my web page show you a picture of what the tail light looks like when it is open. You might want to bookmark this web page because sooner or later you will likely need to do this fix.

BMW rear left hand side tail light and flasher not working also drivers window not working


The electric window could either be the fuse,switch, or window regulator motor at fault..Sometimes the window motor electric plug can vibrate loose or become loose from door slamming..Also the switch can become loose as well or contamination if you are lucky..You will have to remove door panel to inspect these components..and fuse panel..The light could be a faulty bulb..Check and replace bulb..before involving the signal indicator switch lever...If bulb is at fault go ahead and change bulbs at both rear sides..Do not try to repair signal switch because of air bag..If you can hold down on the turn signal switch and it works the switch is at fault...

How do i change the rear indicator bulb


you can access it from inside the trunk. There is a plastic panel covering the back of the lights and a couple nuts that hold on the panels. Remove them and you will have access to the bulbs.

Rear llight on driver side not working. Brake light, reversing light & indicator all work. Housing unit & loom checked OK


There are very few design flaws in the e46 (window regulators, sunroof guides). You just found one of them. BMW put dissimilar metals in the plug and pins in the tail light, and corrosion results. The ground connection corrodes long before the others. Cleaning it is a temporary fix. Replacing the tail light is a temporary fix. Adding a second ground connection is a permanent fix.
In the ground trace on the back of that tail light, you will find a tab for a spade fitting. Make an extra ground wire about 6" long with a spade fitting on one end and a loop on the other end that fits on one of the bolts that holds the tail light in. Do both tail lights while you are at it.
Actually, this was probably not so much a design flaw but rather a case where the plug and the tail light were made by two different suppliers who did not communicate their material selections to each other.

How do I remove the cover on a 2002 325i BMW tail light wiring? thanks


Do you need to change a bulb or are you changing to custom lamps. If it is bulb replacement open trunk/boot (depending where you live ) the access for the tail lamps is at the rear corners of the trunk, If you are changing lamp lenses or assembly remove the screws( same location ) at lamp corners

My 335i....actually a 2008 warning indicator gone haywire


There is an issue with the rear tail lamp bulb holders. BMW knows about this problem and released an updated part. Basically the bulb is not held tight enough, and occasinally loses contact with the holder. Your car should still be under warranty and any local BMW dealer should have the parts in stock.

Change Dodge Ram tail lights from 2005 to new 2008. The wiring harness to change from the 05 to the updated 08 are different. Is there a adapting wire harness from dodge for this?


I just got a pair of 2008 tail light lens for my 2002 Dodge Ram 1500. If you look under the rear there is a connector that runs up to the tail light. This is a small harness. I believe that all you need to do is purchase the 2008 tail light harness. It looks like it will snap into the bottom of the stock harness and will fit the 2008 lenses.
