    Removal of Drivers Side Louver Light Assembly

    Has anyone ever removed the small air louver assembly that contains the BMW emblem on the drivers side front fender in front of the door? I have a nickle size ding above the louver and need to get behind it to do the repair. It is not easily accessible from the hood or with the door open.

    It appears to be pressed into a bracket that is bolted in behind it.

    Any expertise is appreciated.

    Thanks

    David

    I'd be interested in knowing this as well...

    I had my side marker replaced several years ago when the chrome started to peel. The marker assembly on that side has always been lose...even the original one. If I can remove it maybe there's a way to tighten louver assembly down or put a little silicone on it and snug it up.

    I thought to bring the side louver vent up again, as my right side louver periodically resonates at engine idle. There seems to be no information on removal or no apparent fasteners visible. Any ideas?
