Hi All,
Do any of u guys know how to remove the windshield washer reservoir? I need to remove it to get at a bolt so that
I can change out the signal lights for the clears. I've done the drivers, but the passenger side is giving me a hard time. I can get at it but not with enough leverage.
Thanks in advance for for your help.

You didn't say what year/engine, but it's real ez on my early 525i. Unscrew the black plastic screw closest to the top of the fender. This screw and some foam-rubber-lookin'/maybe two-sided tape is the only thing that holds along with a tab and notch on the lower front edge of the tank. You will probably have to pull up with a little force to get it free, then just disconnect the pump connectors, or pull the whole thing to the side to gain access to the side markers. good luck!
