My Ride: E60 M5

Is there a DIY instruction on how to remove the tail light and replace the bulb?

This happens frequently, an intermittent tail light bulb error. What I did to fix it was to pull the offending bulb and clean the contacts on the bulb and then replace it. The error never came back! Funny thing, the dealer wanted to set up an appointment with a loaner car and all to replace the whole assembly!
