How do I change the headlight, fog, and DRL bulbs on my 2013 X1?

Hi everyone. I recently purchased a 2013 X1 without the Lighting Package and wanted to upgrade the bulbs in the DRL, Headlights, and Fog lights to a brighter white bulb.

I have been all over the internet and you tube trying to find instructions on how to access the lights and do the changes myself but have had no luck.

Does anyone know how and where I can locate this info so I can swap out the bulbs?

Any and all info would be appreciated!

Thanks!

The access panels in the wheel wells are useless you are better off doing it through the engine bay. For the passenger side just unplug the headlight harness and you should have enough room to reach down and change the bulb. The driver's side is a bit more tricky, I removed part of the air filter housing, and unplugged the headlight harness. Once I removed those 2 things I was able to reach the bulb. You will need to remove and reinstall them by feel so take note of the position they are in when take them out.
