    I have received the BTS426L1 but with SMD Package instead Standard Package. The main difference are lengths and shape of the legs, as you can see in the attached image.

    Do you think could be adapted?

    Thanks
    Fabian.

    Sorry for late response but for some reason I do not get e-mail notifications when somebody replies to the thread. IF it was me I would solder short pieces of wire (insulated), solder it to the board and stick the transistor to the radiator. I will have to figure out what to use to stick it so it does not deteriorate from heat.

    firstly thank you for a spot on post!

    I know the post is a little old now, but - these still fail it seems!

    I'll let you know how it goes - lunch time today came out to find one high beam on, refusing to switch off, so pulled the plug on the bulb.

    Internet search, and I got here quite quickly!

    Cross referencing your discussed article -
    bimmerfest com/forums/showthread.php?p=3719703
    "These chips can be purchased from Mouser Electronics online at http://www.mouser.com/ by ordering part numer VN750-E. "

    I first tried mouser uk com, price is good, but post costly, so I tried good old RS components, and bingo, pack of 5 cost £1.13 each (minimum is 5) post is £4.95, in all £12.72.

    So try searching RS "uk rs-online com" for VN750, 2 come up but the correct ones are obvious!

    Give me a couple of days and I'll post back the results!
     
     

  6. Fixed... works a treat thanks once again!

    5 VN750 Mosfets from RS arrived yesterday morning (less than 24 hours after the order!) - this morning soldered in, put back in to the car and all is 100%!
    Good job too, my MOT expires 4 in days time!
    About 2 hours work all in all, although I took the LCM out a few days back to check it was the same model, and only loosely connected it back, so I could still drive and indicate etc.
    Thanks once again for this post, saved me £30 -50 for a replacement LCM from ebay!

    Good news this, shall be having mine done shortly.

    Looks like the drivers side had gone and a garage had simply cut the power to the bulb and paired it with passenger side as a quick fix, now thats gone so will need both repairing.
