In Reply to: HOW DO I REPLACE THE LOW BEAMS? posted by 1986 528e owner on January 30, 2001 at 10:29:18:

If you're lucky, your grill will be held on by the screw type fasteners, and they won't break when you remove or replace them. If you're unlucky, they will break (like on my car), or they'll be a different kind of fastener (also like on my car.)

On my car, some of the fasteners don't have screws- they have push-pieces that you push in to secure the fasteners. The only way to remove them is to push the push-pieces all the way through and hope you can find them again.

My advice- stop by the dealer and get some replacement fasteners, just in case.

Well after 14 years my low beam finally went out. the car has 225K miles and i want to replace the low beam. I took a look inside, and it looks as if i need ot buy a whole new lense and everything? Is there something i am missing? Its a halogen light but it looks like the bulb is built into the lense? how do i replace it? thanx, BYE
