PY24W bulb installation on 09 E92

I have an 09 E92 and purchased these bulbs to replace the amber front blinkers. According to the video there should be a little door that opens in the wheel well for installation but there is not. I couldn't find any access within the engine bay either...do I need to pull my headlights to change the front blinkers?

I didn't have a door to access the lights either, what I had to do was take off most of the bolts of the black plastic fender liner and peel it back enough for you to be able to get your hands in there. You should be able to access the housing for the front turn signals from there.

I had an occasional error message (Mine is an 07') which I got coded out but they are completely worth it!

Search for the fog light installation as you need to unbolt most of the black plastic fender liner in order to access the turn signal bulb, there isn't a big space for you to swap out, so taking off the wheels might help. I have smaller hands and did it without taking the wheels off. I have 07 and need to code the error out even the seller claimed that it is error free.

We use the HPB py24w high powered in our cars.

Installation is not too bad, we just throw a jack under the car and turn the wheel to gain access.

Unscrew a few bolts to the fender to access the blinkers.

We got the install done in about 15 minutes.

Remove and install the new.

No errors.
