Vanity Mirror Light Replacement

2015 - 428i GC
Part#: 9216245

My driver's side vanity/sun visor mirror light went out and I'm looking for a replacement. The only ones I can find are used.

1. Is there anywhere I can buy a new one? (other than the dealer)
2. Any guidance on how it is removed? I'm struggling to find any instruction on how its removed. I assume it just slides out somehow but, I'm trying not to break anything.

Thanks for the help!

Lift off make-up mirror light (1) from roofliner in direction of arrow.

Disconnect plug connection underneath and remove make-up mirror light (1).

Note:
Mirror light (1) in LED technology, LED cannot be replaced.



Use realoem.com to find the part # for a replacement. Google the part # & you'll find vendors offering them. Good luck!

If you're looking for a replacement with a brighter and whiter LED bulb, benzinfabrik.com sells them. It's a German site and they also sell replacement ambient lighting LED's of various colors amongst other LED's.

Looking at the site: benzinfabrik.com , they offer interior LED upgrades for a number of F- series, except my F30

Isn't this the same thing? I know it doesn't specifically say F30 but it looks the same. Sorry if the site doesn't have what you need.
