Can anyone offer any tips on how to remove the trunk light lens to replace the bulb?
The manual says to unclip it from the left side, but I have tried prying with a small screwdriver, and all I am doing is taking chunks out of the lens and the surrounding plastic. Is there a trick that I am missing?
Also the Parts fiche from Max BMW lists the bulb at something like $14. Is this possible?
Thanks in advance for your help.

There was supposed to be an little opening at the shifter side of the area where the light is installed into to insert a small screw driver. The little latch is on that side and once you hit it wih the screw driver it will pop right out. Think they left it (the access hole) out on the trunk. Look at the dash light - same thing.

Yup $14 bulb. Time for an LED.
