    Replacement of 2007 BMW Z4 E85 E86 Halo Bulb

    I'm trying to replace the passenger side halo bulb in my 2007 BMW Z4. I found a YouTube video that says it covers all E85 and E86 year models 2002-2008. The bulb housing that holds that individual bulb should come out if you turn it counterclockwise. However, when I try to rotate the bulb housing it won't move. The bulb housing in the video looks different from mine, so I'm wondering if the removal process for my 2007 year model is also different. Does anyone here have some experience removing this bulb from a 2007 E85 or E86, that can give me some advice?

    Can you attach a photo of what you have? That may help. I know BMW will say you need to buy the whole assembly with the plastic bracket and bulb but as that guy showed you can remove the bulb even though they tried to make it seem you can't. You can also dremel a small notch in the black plastic at the edge of the bulb to make it easier to swap.
