ok, so this is a dumb one, but I am stumped. just got a 01 330i and need to change the turn signal bulb.... I cant find any screws, and the manual states "using screwdriver, release inner hook" I am not sure if that is gignlish for screw or if there is a "hook"

I see a tab of sorts in the first hole behind the housing, but I am not sure what to do with it....


thanks!

so, in the 2nd pic, that is the tab I am looking at through the hole... looks like you just flip it, not really a srew, correct?

ok... I got it... there is the first "tab" which is really part of the assembly that guides it in. the tab you need to push down on is further past that - using the BMW screwdriver, you actually need to take the handle off to reach it.
