    The trims are clipped around the lamp housing....you need to work opposite slat side first.

    You probably can gain access from back but TIS instructions state it should be removed from the front.

    This is the link for bulb removal BMW TIS - 63 99 201 Replacing halogen bulb for left or right front fog lamp, and other than Saloon/Sedan/Touring from 09/2001 & Coupé/Convertible from 03/2003 you remove the Remove foglamp insert as per BMW TIS - 63 17 000 Removing and installing/replacing left or right foglamp insert (Coupé, Convertible)
