firstly im new to the forum so still getting to grips with it and this is my first BMW. its the e36 coupe on a 1999 reg.
i brought the vehicle and noticed i had a headlight out (passenger) so purchased some new bulbs and fitted them drivers side was working but replaced it anyway and still worked after replacing the bulb however the passenger side still did not work and the connector on the back of the bulb was wobbling so i purchased a second hand set of headlights. fitted the headlights put the new bulbs in and again drivers side is fine but still no dipped beam on passenger side. full beams, side lights and indicators are fine all round just the dipped beam doesnt seem to want to work on the passenger side. to check it isnt a faulty headlight unit i unplugged the drivers side and connected the passenger headlight to the drivers side and all worked fine so its not the bulbs, not the headlight.. has anybody got any suggestions of what i can check im startin to think its something to do with the loom? im presuming if the relay or fuse had gone it would take out both headlights? any help is much appreciated.
