How to replace fog light bulb on 03 325i

Well basically I bought some Xenesis Bulbs for my car and tried installing them and just can't figure out how to get the oem bulbs out of the holders to put in the new bulbs. Any tricks or tips would be helpful

turn your wheel all the way to the left or right. and then take out the plastic wheel cover right behind the front bumper. after that, you should be able to see the fogs and take it out. if you wanted, you could take off your wheel and then do that.

You shouldn't even have to do that, you can remove the black plastic grill at the bottom of the bumper and reach up to twist the bulb out of its socket. Otherwise, if you can't manage that the wheel liner is another way to do it.
