make sure the glass lenses aren't broke or leaking and try replacing the bulbs. on E36 the is a hole on the inside of light, put a screw driver in that hole and push. hte light assy should pop out. key word here "should" sometimes the fram around the light assy are broke. and pushing on it a lot can break it even more. i have even seen where peopl put epoxy on the light to hold it in the frame and when i pushed on the tap to release the light it broke right off. hopefully yours isn't hacked up like that though. if you have problem getting the light to release you can turn the wheel all the way one way. if you working on the pass front turn the wheel all the way left. and there are like 3 or 4 8mm screws you can take out to push the splash gaurd back and get to the back of the fog light.

look in the fuse box, and on the top panel, it has the fuse mappings.

There should be a guide on top of the box lid on the inside. Shows and names the fuses.
