: fog light bulb replacement 95 540i

for my 95 540i any help to explain how to get at the fog light bulb is appreciated. I unscrewed the wire housing and removed the yellow wire clip, I couldnt get the other wire clip off. cant figure out how to get the bulb out, and cant figure out how to get the whole housing out of the shroud either. the driver side bulb is burnt out per the computer text, after I tried to remove it, the passenger fog light is now also out ... apparently I caused a bigger problem trying to wiggle the bulb out of the drvier side assembly while I had the fog lights powered. I checked both fuses 3 and 8, both look AOK. HELP!

IIRC there is a plastic cover on the inside (engine side) of each fog light you slide a spring loaded tab using a flat blade to flip it open. It then reveals a screw. Remove the screw the fog light boby fall out.
