    License Plate Light Lenses

    Does anyone else have extreme difficulty getting these to go in?

    I just broke ANOTHER lens trying to get it in. I know how they come out.. so i've been putting it back in reverse order. At like $4 a pop.. this routine is getting old.

    Do it while the trunk is open...I believe the solution will become apparent.

    Hmm...well Idk what to tell you. Maybe use less force? They should just pop in with minimal effort.

    Have one of the techs at your dealership show you an easy way to do it. They probably know all of the tricks.

    I'm sure the lens and the part it goes in to looks the same as any other e46

    That's what I'm going to do. I broke one of the clips on one..and tore off the insulation on another thinking that it was the problem. So right after I order two more..
