    Hi Everyone,

    I have a question about the rear fog lamp on e46. Mine is not working - I have changed the bulb etc and cleaned the contacts on the board holding the bulb but still no success with it. The switch works fine on the dashboard and the green rear fog lamp light is lit up in the binnacle when the switch is pressed. It seems to me that it is a fuse issue. However, I am unable to find a fuse in the fuse box for the rear fog. There is one in there for Front Fog Light and these lights work fine.

    Has anyone come across this issue where the rear fog will not work? I would be grateful if anyone could advise where the fuse for this light may be located or any additional info to help me solve the problem.

    Kind thanks in advance for your information.

    Best Regards.

    Check the wires that run in the rubber hose connecting the boot lid to the car body. Due to the opening and closing of the boot the wires can fracture/snap which is what happened to me.
