I recently swapped my number plate bulbs to LED and snapped the plastic that holds them in whilst doing so. A few weeks later it ended up shorting a circuit probably due to water getting in.
I ended up having to pay Mini over £100 to replace the whole unit and repaint it which was a major ****take as Im now back where I started with dull yellow lights
I initially gave up and left them yellow for a bit but I really hate the way they look and want the BMW white look again.
How can I replace these bulbs without snapping the fragile plastic that hold them inside, so I can swap them to LED?
