Arrow DIY: E92 Angel, Cornering and Fog Light VIDEOS

A little step by step on how to install your new angel eyes, cornering lights, and fog light bulbs. Video might be a little shaky...I didn't have any help and pretty much had to do everything with one hand while making sure I was recording the right spot.

Anyways..hope this helps.

Note:
- Never touch the glass part of the bulb. The oil from your hands can make it pop when you turn them on.
- And..both of the angel eyes turn clockwise to remove (if seen from the front of the car) and counterclockwise to screw back in.
- Watch on high quality for better image.

Angels and cornering bulb..


Fog Light

Ok well I did the cornering eyes easy, but I can't see enough so I'm going to stop and do the Angels in the day time.

This is a fantastic post...really helps reassure oneself that it's not difficult at all. I may look into upgrading all my lights. Thanks man!

If the bulb is flush with the housing then it's installed correctly. If you can't push the bulb out of place then it's locked in.

Do you need to disconnect the battery before doing any of these installs?

I've never heard of anyone doing that for a simple bulb change. Maybe for the HID ones as they're special, but these 3 aren't.
