Changing Reading light/Map light bulb - Help!
 
Hi guys, I just bought a 2004 X3 and I'm loving it so far! Both the driver and passenger reading lights are out. I've been searching for days to try and figure out how to change the bulbs but haven't found any useful info or guides. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

Here are some instructions showing a plastic tool to pry off the cover

Thanks! I'll give that a try and let you know how it goes.

in place of said "special tool" will a nice small flathead screwdriver do?

You'll risk doing some damage with the screwdriver. You can pick up a set of different size plastic prying tools from Harbor Freight for under $10.
