Question about 2003 BMW 5 Series
Don't know how to get to turn signal bulb to change it.
For Front turning signal, you need to remove the whole head light system to get to turn signal. 4 screws attach it to the car's body. Make sure to remove the lamps first and disconnect the switch for the turn signal lamp. Just replaced it last week myself.

This is straight from the owner's manual.
#1 Make sure the headlamp switch is in the OFF position and open the trunk.
#2 Carefully pull the carpet away to expose the backside of the tail lamp assembly.
#3 Remove the nut and washer assemblies, then pull the lamp assembly away from the vehicle.
#4 Remove the bulb socket by rotating it counterclockwise, then pulling it out of the lamp assembly.
#5 Pull the bulb straight from the socket.
Install new bulb(s) in reverse order.

Remove 3 or 4 of the plastic pins holding the inner fender. They are located around the lip of the fender opening. The pins are removed by pulling the center cap of the pin straight out about an 1/8" and then wiggle and pull the whole pin out.
Pull the inner fender down and back.
Reach your arm in and grab the socket and squeeze the locking tab.
Rotate the socket counter-clockwise less than a quarter turn, and pull straight back.
Reach your other hand in and remove the bulb by pulling it straight out of the socket. It takes a 3157 bulb

it can be a pain because the screws are hidden. first you must remove the parking lamp raise the hood. one screw is visible from the top looking down at the lens...the other is hidden on the bottom side....look between the park laml and the turnsignal housing..a long phillip scew driver can reach it. once you have that removed lookng straight down at the turnsignal assembly you should see 2 screws. remove them and roll the assembly out and away from the body...you should see the bulb holder
