Backup light switches are different between automatic and manual transmission bmws. If you have the automatic the switch is under the shifter. Disconnect the battery and remove the shifter boot. Unplug the switch wires and replace the switch and reconnect the wires and battery. If you have a manual transmission the switch is on the passenger side of the transmission above the Allen type filler plug. Disconnect the battery, unplug the wires and unscrew the switch with a 19mm wrench. Screw in the new one an torque it down then reconnect the wires and the battery.
