How do I safe remove the headlight assembly on a BMW 325i premium package?

Hello,

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.

Thanks,

Troy

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.

2006 BMW 325i E90 remote programming


That remote you purchased, did you remove your vehicle key from your old one and insert it into the new one? At the back of the remote there are pinch grips, pinch and pull to remove the key, you should have a plastic version of this key for your car, in the spare in the glovebox, unless it has been removed, check also in the owners manual folder, if you bought this car used it maybe in there. If you do not have the kaey that matches your car to put in the remote it will not program to the car. Hope this helps, let me know.

How to replace passenger side headlight assembly on 2001 BMW 325i


The E46 2001 325i headlight assembly is held down by 4 bolts. Question is where they are and how to get to them. The 4 bolts require a 10mm wrench.

There are two bolts on top of the headlight assembly. And two more near the back of the assembly, near the area where you would change a headlight bulb.

There is just one more trick to this. Please refer to this trim: http://e46fanatics.com/howto/howtodetail.php?howto_id=24

This trim hooks on to the side fender, just under the turn signal. You have to unhook this.

Then the entire headlight assembly (including the turn signal) can be slided out together.
