My Ride: DD is a 2001 325i

Open the trunk, trunk light will light up (see photo), there is a latch you can feel, but only see if you stick you head inside the trunk. See arrow in first photo
2nd image shows Connector still plugged in
The unit that holds the bulbs needs replacing
as well as the plug with the 6 brown wires.
The OEM wiring will have multiple colors, this
picture was taken after changing the old one with the multi-color wires to the new kit which contains all brown wires.
Simple step by step instructions came with my kit. I have no wiring experience. All you need is a cigarette lighter and a pair of wire cutters/crimpers available at a Walmart or auto parts store, that can cut, strip and crimp the connectors. The pliers are very inexpensive

I got it from www.bavauto.com, I don't have the part number handy, but if you call them, explain the issue, they will know exactly what to do. Gordon Arnold is the guy I talked to, very knowledgeable.
