Question about 2001 BMW 325
I recently purchased a BMW 325i in excellent condition, I also purchased a set of aftermarket projection headlights, self contained assemblies. I tried to remove the stock headlights and ran into a host of problems trying to get them out... after unscrewing and unclipping what I thought was holding the lights in, I was still not able to figure out what is holding them in place. Can you assist me in understanding what is the proper procedures for removal.
There are 2 8mm screws on the top of the headlight and 2 identical looking screws on the backside of the headlight assembly (you will need about a 6 in extension for those 2). Directly under the headlight assembly you might have a painted trim piece. The trim is anchored toward the center of the car and can be released by pressing the tab in. If you want to leave it on when removing the light, it is also ancord in at the fender corner. You will need to remove the turn signal first.. There should be a small hole about 1 1/2 inches behind the turn signal. If you see a tab in hole, carefully press down while pulling turn signal out.
