    Hi
    I got a E46 saloon 1999.The one with the long type front fog lamps.How do you get the housings out to replace the bulbs?

    Ive tried gently levering the housings from the inner upward edges with out any luck.Ive got some Nice icey blue bulbs to fit,but cant get housings out.I dont want to break anything!

    Anybody managed to get one of these out??

    You will see a hole on one side of the bumper where the fog light sits. This is where you put in your flat blade screwdriver and pry it out at an angle.

    Its stopped raining!!

    Managed to get the holders out following Neals Instructions.It appears the bulbs are integral to the bulb holders??

    So does this mean i have to buy blue bulbs from BMW? At a inflated price or is there a easy way round this?

    Any help appreiciated

    Come as one piece, so moulded to the holders. They are H11 bulbs like THIS.
