What's up guys? I'm Andy from 1A Auto. In this video I'm going to show you how to replace the fog light bulb on this 2001 BMW 325xi. If you need parts for your vehicle, click the link in the description and head over to

To pull the fog light out just take a straight blade screwdriver or a pry tool. Be careful of the paint. You might want to put a rag there or something. Just pry out here and then we're going to slide it this way. What you want to do is pry behind here, there's a little retainer, goes right there. Disconnect the connector, just push down, and if it sticks a little bit just use the straight blade screwdriver. Slide the connector off. There's the fog light.

To remove the bulb, just grab the bulb, twist it to the left and slide it up. This bulb is a HB4. To reinstall it, just line the tabs up, push it in and twist it to the right. Connect the connector. Just line it up, lock it in place and line these two tabs up over here. Once those are lined up, make sure that pin's lined up in the back there, and then push right there. Lock it in place.
