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

Alright, take the visor down to remove this lamp and replaced the bulb. You can get a straight blade screwdriver or a trim tool underneath the front side of it and then just slide it out like that. It's clipped in right there and then clipped in on the back. Take the bulb out, just grab the bulb, slide it out.

This bulb happens to be a K5618 bulb. I'm sure there's other versions of this bulb that you can use. So just slide this back into position, just like that. Make sure the contacts are good on that side and that side. And then to put this back in, we're going to slide the back side in first like this, and then lock it in place.
