A rock broke my front left fog light on my 98 540i. Does anyone have any experience in replacing fog lights themselves, rather than going to the dealer/autoshop? Do you think this is something I can handle myself without causing any further damage to my car?

its pretty straight forward

things you need:

screw driver

flash light

what to do: just turn the wheel all the way in and remove the inner fender plastic its pretty striagh forward after to my understanding.. just dont try to look for screws to remove the bulb lol.. it uses metal retention bands to hold in the bulb..
