  • Where to plug in rear side markers

    Ok, I bought some new side markers for my 88m3 and tried to put them on today. The fronts went on, no problem, looks good. The rear...well, they go on fine, but I can't find where you plug them in. I know the wire is really long so it must go at least a foot away from the light. I did not want to start tearing things apart and then find it was in the opposite direction. Does anyone have a picture of where these lights plug in????

    thanks for any help you can give, its getting dark outside and I was hoping to get this done today.

    Try using a mirror and a light to look for the wire. Then fish it out with a coat hanger. The plug quarter turns and locks into the side markers. I lost one in the rear bumper once when changing a bulb. I just stuffed my hand in there and felt around. Luckily I found it.

    Don't know where it meets the harness but I'd bet it's toward the back where it comes through for the tail lights.

        Thanks for the info and pic.

        Ok, that is just what I needed. I do not have the wires so I did not know what to look for.
