Smile Can You open the Fog lights lens?

Hi guys, thanks for the help in advance. I just want to ask, is it possible to open the lens of the logs for E36s? Unfortunately the cover for the bulb inside the fog light is loose so it's hanging inside. I"m seeing a screw inside the fog lens that holds it but I'm not sure if there's a way to open it. Thanks.

i think you have to cut the silicon seal on the housing and then re silicon it when you're done...

DIYed my headlamp and fog lamp lenses.

There's a layer of silicon separating the lens and housing. Use a blade and slowly slice off the silicon between them. Scrap off excess silicon from the housing and replace with fresh silicon, reattach the fresh lens and clamp them together. Leave it to set for 1hr before fixing.
