I finaly scrapped my 318i Touring at 205,000 miles and bought a year 2000 318ti Compact 1900. It drives brilliantly.
However; I took it for it's MOT and it failed on the rear foglights not working. The switch pulled out to the first stop for the front fogs but would not stay out for the rear. I took it all apart and found that it is not supposed to stay out and has a spring to prevent this. The rear light does not come on even when the switch is right out, neither does the tell-tale light in the dash. I am baffled, is there a relay somewhere? Has anyone else had this problem?
I can just loop across to the other light cluster when I have one working as these only had one rear foglight from new.
Added later; It is an E36 with M44 engine
