Removing Tail Lights on E92?

I'd like to remove and replace my tail lights. Does anyone have a good DIY step by step thread, link, video, etc? Thanks in advance.

So easy, even a caveman can do it.
  1. Remove interior covers
  2. Unplug lights
  3. remove 3 8mm nuts on each side

Done

Ok, thanks man. I figured it was that easy. However, I have owned cars in the past where it required taking the rear bumper off to replace them and I just wanted to know what I was getting myself into. Thanks again.

Hey folks, remember to take your time to align them properly . They have a bit of play, and one was misaligned a little from the factory in my car.

The module allows the LCI tail light upgrade to be performed without the need for coding. If you install the lights without the module you will get flashing of the brake lights on start up as well as, turn signals that flash much faster than normal. You could opt for the coding but I dont have anyone near me that can do it so I just bought the module.
