    My 2001 318ci has a burnt out connector on the rear os bulb holder plug. Connected a new plug and holder but indicator still not working. Any ideas what it could be?
    Many thanks

    this is a common fault , woring in a dealer , we replace the connector , and wiring pins , replace the probely dammaged bulb holder , and rewire the earth in the plug and drop it to one of the 10mm earthing points , this will cure you terminals burning out .

    Thank you for your reply! I have replaced the bulb holder and plug connector with 5 inches of wire attached, have joined the wires from the car to the new plug wires but still doesn't work correctly (indicator not working). Could it be a blown fuse? Just wondered if you have any advice that may help?
    Many thanks again
    Ben
