Headlamp Lens Replace Tutorial

Anyone know of an online tutorial for replacing the headlamp lens on a '01 3 series? (or similar) I've found one for replacing the lens on an e38 at e38 dot org, but it's a different model.

Without some direction, I know I'll break something...I always do.

just go search for angel eye installs and they'll tell you how to do it, but basically....

uhh pretty much take the corners off. then take the weather stripping off the top, then depending on if you have cold weather package you have to pop off hte squirter at the head. then after you do that you gotta pull of the lower trim piece. then you could push the clips on the headlight lens and it'll be free.

don't really quote me on that... but thats pretty much the basics. If you really want just go look for a angel eye install guide and use that.

tech section next time. it's for changing the headlight trim, but you have to take off the lense to do that first.
