More specificity. The most commonly needed fix in that area.

Edit: If I was changing the headlight (the bulb to the HID main beam) the car would be jacked up and the wheel removed because access to this is through an access door in the wheel lining.

Changing out the old winter blinker fluid over to fresh summer blinker fluid? And also installing a clothes line to freshen your garments while on the go?

On the driver's side, to gain access for my normal size hands, I have to remove the bracket holding the ATF reservoir and a relay of some kind, and loosen the coolant reservoir and have them pulled out of the way (they are all still attached by their hoses below) to merely change a H-8 bulb.

This is the second time that the driver's side bulb has burnt out in five years. The second one didnt last long, maybe 20k miles -- it was an OSRAM Sylvania. I replaced it with a Phillips, hope it lasts longer because it is a PITA.

One of the problems is that there are three leads going to the bulb, two black and one red. One of the black leads is significantly shorter than the other two leads -- leaving barely enough wire to pull the socket out of the access hole. I was about to solder on an extension, but everything was taking longer than expected and it was getting dark.

The passenger side is much easier.

Make sure you use only BMW approved blinker fluid or you will void the warranty.

What you need to focus on is to NOT drop any bolts or nuts which have to be removed to get the ATF bracket out or to loosen the coolant reservoir. I dropped one bolt and I was tremendously relieved when I heard it bounce of a few things and land on the pavement below car. Whew.

The nuts holding the bottom of the bracket to the frame are a bit difficult to get to and easy to drop when you try to bring them up. You need a long extension with a 10mm socket.
