Clear Sidemarkers for 330i

Does anyone know the cost and complexity of changing these over (cdn). I'm only interested in the sidemarkers not the corners etc.

Thanks,
Lester

They literally just slide right out. Less than a minute to swap both sides, including the time to walk around the car.

Get them from the dealership. The side markers don't cost much.

they're cheap.

slide them to 1 side, then pull up on the corner opposite of the direction to slid them to with a finger nail or tiny screwdriver.

Get them from the dealer!!!
i bought mine off the net...they kept popping out!!!
Get BMW parts for the side markers, trust me.

You just use a flat head....and CAREFULLY slide the side marker forward until it pops out...literally takes 5 seconds.

Throwing a screwdriver into the mix is just asking for trouble. Just slide and pull.

i found it was hard to slide sometimes
the screw driver helped but the key is to be careful
i used to stick kleenex under the screw driver to make sure not to damage the paint
