i just got those replacement bulbs from bimmian and i installed them all except the two under the front dash. When i took out the lens case, it had some kind of metal case over it that you have to pry off i guess. does any1 have suggestions how to take that off easily without bending it out of shape b/c when i started to pry it off w/ a screwdriver it started to bend so i stopped not wanting to mess it up. thanx

If you go to Bimmian and then to their xenon interior lighting page, you can watch their install video. It shows you how to install each bulb, including the ones under the dash.

This will be the easiest way for you to figure it out

The video is about... 3 minutes long, so even if you are on dialup, it wont be too long a wait.

Good luck!
