Question: How to change fog light bulbs on an M3..

does it involve taking out the front bumper? Or is there an easier way?

remove the black plastic casing around the foglight...it just pops off with a little tug. there is a bolt underneath, which you must loosen. when the bolt is loose the light housing is easily removed and the bulb is accessed.

takes 15 minutes max for both.......




any longer than that means you screwed up
