dome light sockets

Anyone know where I can purchase these sockets? I kinda broke the tab when I put it back together. I checked Realoem but didn't see it.

got mine from dealer, the key is to spread the metal prongs with a screwdriver so the bulb fits easier and is not jammed in causing the metal tabs to break..

Hey Revlimit... May I ask how you got your interior dome light out?
Did you ever get the part number for the socket?

I forgot the part number. The easiest way was to un screw the visor that holds the headliner. Then pop the clip out from inside. I try several different method prior and that seems like the most effective for me.

Damn I tried my local dealer but they said the only way to get it is to buy the whole housing unit.. I forgot the price but it was ridiculous amount.. You think they'll ship a few all the way to the west coast? lol.

Not true at all. I bought mine
here in Dallas at Classic BMW.
I get a lot of strange stuff from
BMW S. Atlanta. Like a reverse
light socket that I trashed on
a change out. I'm sure they will
ship all over the US.
