Hi, I need some help with my tail light. I'm a bit of a dufus when it comes to cars so I've got no idea where to start! My car is a 323Ci 2000 model and the brake light is out on the drivers side (RHD) the warning light has also come on on the dash. I suppose it is a fuse or globe but I just don't know where to start to test to see what is wrong. If someone could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful,

thanks,

Matt :idea:

push the brake, ask someone to see if it lights up, if it does then its probably just loose, if not, replace the bulb in tail light, if no go, go inside your glove box open it up, on the top you'll see the fuse box, find your manual to make sure u change the right fuse and now you should be good. Simple as that, good luck

Cool, got it going again, was just the globe, easier than I thought to replace. Thanks a heap for your help.
