    That sounds like a tough one buddy

    I had a similar problem a few years back (Peugeot 206) and found that the metal circuit strips in the rear bulb holder had corroded and furred up, and was short circuiting/blowing the fuse.

    Might be worth looking at the rear bulb holder (as in pic below) and checking that there is no debris, blown bulbs or corrosion in there and make sure the wiring plugs are not loose.



    After that I wouldn't have a clue lol

    Best of luck and hope you get it sorted
