    Per title, I have ordered some silver colour (but amber shining) side repeater bulbs for my E46 330d... but I can't figure out how to get repeater off the wing to change the bulbs. Can you help advise?

    Thanks,
    nsi

    It's a sprung slip that holds on the side repeater, just slide gently to the left or right as appropriate and it'll come out easily.
    To do: Far too much.....

    Me: 04 E46 320d Sport in Titan Silver

    The Mrs: 59 E92 320d Sport in Space Grey....now replaced by a 61 plate Z4 2.0L S-drive M-Sport in Deep Sea Blue with beige leather

    I'm just a lottery win away from that 335i.........and a Series 3 Discovery..........and an old Mini.........and an E30 325i........

    Thanks. Does it move towards the front or rear of the car? (I don't want to push hard in the wrong direction and bust it!)

    Toward the front bumper & using a credit card, see note #3 in this LINK and note #4 for replacement
