There Beamer owners got broken foglights want to get them fixed, I’ll bet you’re thinking of taking them to the BMW dealership closest to you. I’m going to show you how you can do it yourself for about $100 Canadian and save yourself over 600 bucks. You will need some real specialized equipment this also specialized flat blade screwdriver, let’s try it.
One of the tricks are doing this is knowing where to put the screw tower to take the things out. First, some people will actually tell you to put the screwdriving above the tab that’s wrong. Put it off to one side, if you’re putting it on the right-hand side facing the car. Put the screwdriver off to the right, you need to get the little notch in there so that you can actually pull down on that little metal tab. That’s the biggest trick of all.
Let’s see how tough this thing is to pull out a little bit off to the right put it in, that felt like a tab we’re pulling on there. Let’s try it again to make sure there it is and it wasn’t that difficult. We pull it out cable on the back, just pull that connector off trick pinch these little tabs and off. It comes really easy and you’re left with that.
When you first get them that metal tab is sticking way up, so we’re gonna have to do that a little bit of a bend on it. Now for putting it back in watching these little tabs on both sides. Because they have to fit inside both sides of the light to hold it in place, we now put the cord back on Hector only goes one way. I just need to make sure that everything is lining up, there we go that side look good too indeed it does and then push till you hear it snap in place, that one is done.
We go for the other one check to see where that screwdriver has to go. Put it upwards at a bit of an angle first as it goes in push it down as far as you can and then when you pull down you can see already it’s coming loose. It’s probably loose enough as it is there’s that little tab on the top and sometimes it gets a little stuck, just because of the make the time, it’s been in there and how it comes connector pinch towards the back and off. It comes doing back in check those tabs, you’ve got them lined up full assembly literally should snap right in.
Now the moment of truth and there you go about 10 minutes fog lamps replaced easy-peasy and only about a hundred bucks Canadian. Ordered off an eBay out of the states instead of over $700 to take it to the dealership, that’s how you do it yourself.
