Default What is this called on front tailight

EDIT: Meant front turn signal.

Hi all,

Picked up my first M3, it's a 2003. And man do I have my work cut out for me. But I knew that going in.

So I have a checklist of things to fix and look at. I tried fixing the sunroof, but I made things worse. So I'll probably leave that alone.

But this one should be easy. Previous owner said that after a car wash, the drive lights don't work until things dry up.

So in looking at it, I think the issue is the driver tailight cover thing is gone and the term cover is way too generic to fine what I'm looking for.

Welp, was trying to attach pics, but having tech difficulties with that at the moment. I'll have to play with that.

Thanks in advance.

Clicked this thread to ask the same question...

Maybe he just needs to change his blinker fluid?

Thanks brandroidian...

But I'm sorry for failing miserably in describing what I need. On this housing for the front turn signal lens, it's missing a cover or boot.

I would like to replace it since I believe that might be the culprit for the lights going out when the car is washed.

But searching for boot/cover doesn't seem to be helping, so I must not be searching for it by name.

And since I'm failing uploading pics as well. Here's a link to a Google photo album to show the pic of what I'm saying.

Sweet thanks, you rock. I was afraid I might need to replace the whole thing.
