Lux H8 V4 installation

Hi guys. I need your help. I bought the Lux H8 V4 for my 2008 335xi coupe but I'm having trouble installing the bulbs. I took the old bulbs out and I've searched on the forums lots trying to find how to do it but nothing has helped me. Guys talk about looking on youtube but I tried searching for videos and only videos I found were ones where it showed how to remove the bulb but then they skip over the hard part. It's a tight fit I know but also seems like there's this black piece of plastic in a tube type of shape behind where the bulb goes. Any advice or video for me to check out? One guy suggested in the past to remove the "front fender liner"

Gently lower the ass end of the bulb down passed the housing opening by the cords with one hand.

With the other hand, take a coat hanger and hold the front of the bulbs it's the hook and gently raise the bulb with both hands. As you raise it, guide the tip of the bulb to rest on the edge of the chrome opening. Drop the hanger (it's retrievable) and use your fingers to gently pull the bulb into the slot with a finger motion like you were telling someone to "come here" while still holding the cord in the other hand.

Don't worry about gentle touches on the LED that's not gonna ruin anything. Just be gentle and patient and you'll get them in.

Also be prepared to get cut up a lot.

+1 to oldbmwreader

What i recommend s lowering the light in with the LED upwards first, while holding the wire to keep it balanced
Then gently insert the top of the light into the angel eye opening
Using the wire while guiding, lift it so it goes into the opening all the way.
After that twist it into place
