hi guys, i'm sorry but i have to ask this question again. does anyone know how to change the fog light light bulbs on a e60? i just bought a pair of piaa 4700k bulbs but don't know how to change them . i changed all the bulbs myself on my e39 before and it was very simple. in fact, they are quite similar but a little different. i took out the plastic screws but couldn't pull out the brackets (the one that holding the foglights). i called the service dept but they said they can't tell me the instructions due to some liability issues . then i called my salesperson and he said since the car is too new, no one really knows how to change them . they have to take a look at the car and replace them for me...with a $99/hour labor charge ! i think it's ridiculous ! i can't wait to put them in, take some pics, and post them here. thank you in advance for your help .

there is no access from the front instead you will have to remove or at least loosen the plastic splash shields ( ineer fender liners lower portion) and access the bulbs from the back side.

thank you for dropping by dirty_tool. so that means to replace foglight bulbs for a e60 is harder than a e39? and i couldn't even remove or loosen the plastic shields. any clue? thanks again.
