How do I replace the tail light bulb in my wife's X3 '06, manual says to pop the side plastic cover but it seems a bit to stuck. I don't want to break anything or end up at the dealer for it.

Based on the book it is the #3 light attached to the body, I have the amber indicator on the dashboard.

Any help, pictures, instructions Etc. is much appreciated.


Take off the carpet cover on the inside and the light bulb will be accessible . I purchased my new bulb at the dealer, Its silver coated. The only one I could find at the auto stores was clear with the comparable socket base. Good luck
