DIY: Angel Eyes/ Cornering Bulb Replacement for 2009 E90/92

Here are instructions for vehicles equipped with HID. I will also explain how to change out the H3 cornering bulbs as well. Tutorial is short, because it is truely a simple job.

Tools you will need:

1. Philips screwdriver
2. Pair of latex gloves
3. Needle nose plyers



Remove the 3 philip's screws on the access panel to expose the cavity to the cornering bulb. The rubber stripping will need to be pulled back to take off the panel cover. You will notice a brown wire that extends from the back of the bulb. Take your set of needle nose and gently pull the wire leading to the other end to disconnect. For the next step, if you have smaller hands you can do this without the needle nose. You will notice that there is a u-shaped pin supporting the bulb to the housing. Pinch the ends to release the bulb. Install replacements and you are good to go!!




For the Angel eyes, you will notice a fan like cover on the back of the light housing. If you are looking from the front, turn the cover clock-wise to release it. If you peek in the hole, you will see the back of the bulb housing that is angled about 45 degrees. There is not a whole lot of room to work with, but all I did was take my 2 index fingers and squeezed the sides of the bulb housing. Now turn it counter-clock-wise so that the bulb housing is vertical. You can now pull out the bulb using your thumb and index finger. Bulb can now be replaced. Make sure the fan-like cover is put back on tight to prevent moisture build up in the housing. That is it!! Literally a 10 minute job!!
