Hey fellaz. Just got a pair of eurosmoke side blinkers for my E46 325I Bimmer, have looked a little at the amber sidemarkers already on there, and didn't want to start prying at them until i was sure on how to properly remove them and install the new ones. Anyone know how this works ?
Thanx fellaz, - Shane
sidemarkers: just gently pry out with a flathead screwdriver. * you may want to use a credit card to start the prying, then use the flathead. The credit card prevents paint scratching. Once off, twist the bulb a quarter turn to take off, then quarter the other way to lock them. Pop the sidemarker in and you are done.
you might wanna try placing a rag on that credit car or flat head that your gonna use to remove that marker with.. even a credit card can put a scratch in the paint doesnt take much all you really need it for is its flewibility to contour to the side of the car.

I just used a flathead screwdriver and wrapped it in a 100% cotton t-shirt. The shirt was thin enough that it didn't create an obstruction for prying it free. After that you just kinda push it in and pry it open at the same time... trial and error, just don't use too much force or the side indicator will snap in half, haha.
Hey guys, I like the side markers that you have on the e46 325i and would like
to put them on my Tiburon, the pointed ones. But I need to know how big a hole
I can cut into my fender for them. If anybody can give me the dimensions, it would be much appreciated.
I was wondering the same thing. I have an older model BMW without sidemarkers and I love the clear sidemarkers for the 03-Up 330ci. I ordered a set and now I have to install them and I don't know how I should go about cutting the fenders because I need a pattern to cut for the hole. Could anyone who has these sidemarkers help me out by tracing the hole in the fenders of you car so I know just what pattern to cut for a good OEM fit? I'd really appreciate it. Just remove one of your sidemarkers and trace the pattern on a piece of paper and either scan and e-mail it or mail it. I'd me most appreciative.
