Need help with sidelights and front indicators

Basically i purchased:

http://www.mstyle.co.uk/acatalog/bmw..._lighting.html

Second down: LED front sidelight bulb replacement

So the LED's came through the other day and i thought it would be simple enough to fit, popped the bulb disconnected the bulb but you couldnt physically remove the bulb inside the holder which connects to the wiring! I don't understand how im supposed to fit it :S do i need to get a new holder or what? Anyone who can explain that to me would be great, i've done some searching but can't find anything so its either not a common thing to do or i'm just being dumb as f***?

Also, purchased clear bulbs for the front indicators but i honestly can't work out how to get to them? I looked in the handbook and it just makes no sense.. honestly can't figure it out!! Any help with that??

I have a e92 coupe...

Is access not possibly through the wheel arch liner?

Well found out on friday that the only way to get to the front indicator is to remove the headlight housing.. to do that you have to remove the front bumper, BMW offered to do it for me but im sure they will charge me so i'm leaving it.

And i didn't realise but the LUX H8 goes in the sidelight so i can't put my led's there anyway! Pointless thread.. sorry.
