I still haven't gotten mine open (it wasn't worth breaking anything); but most people say you just need to use some force in the back where it sticks.

Regarding fuses, apparently the specific word "flashlight" fuse wasn't listed in this thread yet, because it showed up as a "charging socket"; but, it appears to be fuse $39, so, I added the description below for keyword searches to find the "BMW flashlight fuse".

Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
