Yea, it's clips around it but you'll likely want to undo the bolts of the part that holds it to the chassis so you can manipulate it to get the housing/shroud apart. Good time to check to see if...

Nice, man :) .. Just got a 2013 X1 xDrive 28i myself within this last week. First time BMW owner as well. I'm finding it pretty nice with the rain sensing wipers that's on this one.
