Major problems with tail lights!!

Asked by Aug 19, 2009 at 06:07 PM about the 2003 BMW 3 Series 325xi

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2003 325XI and both tail lights on my dash show that they are out, however only my left one is in fact out.  I took apart the back panels and saw that one of the fuses are burnt on both sides of the car, and they are both the same fuses.  So i need a new back panel and a wiring harness.  I need to know where to look for these parts? Has anyone else had problems with their tail lights?
