Hi guys..... I have an update on this....
I went to my stealers to buy the kits and turns out that it's a bit of a DIY job in order to get it to work!
They sold me:
1 x Connection block £1.00
10 or so wires at £1 per wire
Which came to about £16
I also need... the bulb holders they had at £22 each!
So.... to solve all the problems I got a mate to snip the wire, join it and attach it to the earth on the unit using a clip.
I gave him £20 and he's done a BRILLIANT job!
Hopefully it should sort the problem out and all should be ok!
I'm now going off to take the parts back so I can get my £16 back from BMW stealers.
Yeah no worries SlowTech.... you go for it fella.... thanks for checking with me first.
I have done this repair it took 5 mins a side and for a cost of 99p i will post a how to up over the weekend for everyone.
Any idea what/if there's a ifx/answer to the reason why my front drivers side bulb warning light is now coming on the dash?!
I think the fix I've done and what I think eddiee46 is talking about is well worth saving your money and doing it by hand. It involves taking the offending earth out of the block and attaching it via a crimp to a small handle that BMW seem to have left on the circuit. Ok it's a modification but it saves you the best part of £100 on BMW parts and a LOT of time to fit them!
