Rear Indicator light

Post by Hellequin » Tue Nov 14, 2017 6:01 pm

Is it easy to replace a rear indicator LED string, and do whatever is needed to stop the condensation? Mine has blown and all I am being told is contact BMW, which I am assuming would cost squllions

I believe you have to change the entire rear lamp assembly....

Part number left hand side 63217191775
Part number right hand side 63217191776

Type the part numbers into ebay, you will be looking at around £100 - £140

2 things: do these come with the LEDs fitted? which ones will match the originals as I would only be replacing the offside one?

They come as a working unit. Have you tried eBay?

I see there are quite a few on there, just been watching a video on removing them. Must look again and see if I can do it :)

Not too difficult, just removed both of mine and sealed them, didn't have a condensation problem but noticed the separation along the bottom edge
Car always been garaged so I think that helped.

Look on ECP as well and wait for a good discount.

Did you separate the lens from the body and if so, how did you do this?

No you can't separate the unit, there are a few threads on here about rear light water ingress.
I followed the instructions i found, but basically you remove the centre black part that clips round the bulb holders and seal with silicone, also
check the bottom of the cluster to see if the lens has started to separate from the grey body, seal this with clear silicone.

Got new cluster from eBay, took a bit of fiddling to get the old one out, new one now in and all good :)
