Judge, that video is for a E46 Chassis, which is the 3 series. Depending on model year the 5 Series BMW does not have removable lenses and unfortunately the OP will need to replace the whole headlamp assembly.

I should delete this, but your correction has set the record straight, and believe that this is a valuable resource for those with BMW headlight difficulties~


NP, I just replaced my lenses on my '05 and used that same video.

Depending on the year of the 5 series you can replace just the lenses and the later years you can't
