The mounting screw is metal,the thread it goes into is plastic.The screw corrodes,and as soon as you turn it,it pulls the plastic thread out.I had the same problem with mine,what you have to do is try and pull the screw out whilst you undo it,this should free it.If not,then you'll have to drill the head of the screw off and remove the light and then try and get the rest of the screw out.
Once you get the screw out/drilled out,you just hook the light out of the bumper.
(The threads on both of mine were completely shot,so I had to 'modify' the mountings.....!)
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
