    To me, that sounds as though the wire on the inside of the stalk has broke, and when put into the high beam position, it's making contact again.

    I'm not sure how far they can be stripped down to reveal the wiring - Failing that, you might just have to get a replacment unit - I'm sure they'll be a few E46's being broken on eBay with the stalks !

    Not a problem

    What was the problem ? Was it a broken wire ?
