Having problems with your 2005 BMW X5 ?

2001 BMW X5 Brake Light is out.

\015 Owner's manual is lost (I think my wife packed it somewhere) and the right brake light is out. I removed two bolts to remove the red brake light cover, but it's not budging. I didn't know if there was a hidden screw or bolt still holding it. Didn't want to be too forceful and break it. Any suggestions? Probably very simple but...\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018
