Hello, I had an accident with my E34 that compromised my ant sx fender and light group.
I found the second hand parts and had fender painted.
Now I'd like to change it, the light group and the light mask.
Any tips and tricks, operator manual or so on? It seems in particular that to dismount and remount the light mask is somehow tricky... I don't know if I have to dismount the bumper or not.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

OK - Don't ask me how I know how to do this ! ghead

remove the lights - no bumper removal necessary yet. There is a screw holding the side marker in facing the fender Remove the front grill, and the ones to the sides of it. There are 3 additional screws holding the lights.

Pop the hood, - there are several bolts running the legnth of the fender. Remove them all. There are two under the fender, right by the door - they are covered in undercoating. Locate them, scrape them clean and remove them. Remove the front bumper (4 bolts under the trim) and there is one more bolt for the fender in a little bracket, you'll see it.
