  1. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi guys i sold my (according to my other half 'too small') e63 on Saturday and bought a stolen/recovered unrecorded 14 plate F11 on Sunday... the car looks fab but it came without front headlights. I was checking the mDecoder to establish what parts i need to order. I'm quite surprised that...

    Hello, So in February 2017 my 2007 E92 failed it's MOT because one of the headlamp washers wasn't working and the other was barely working. I replaced both, one was brand new, the other was used, but worked well. Less than 2 years later, they've both failed again, one is completely blocked, the...

    Hi guys, first post (and new Bimmer owner!) so please do move things or correct me if this is in the wrong place. Just bought a 2006 1 series 118i and the interior panel for turning headlamps and foglights on is loose and has fallen into the dash. I need to be able to get inside and push it...

    Hello all. I am learning and trying to understand the complexity of this E60 headlamp assy. I thought that the top headlamp access door was intended for the angel eyes. But is is not. Angel eyes are powered fron H8 bulbs accessed from the rear of the head lamp. What does this bulb accessed from...

    I’m having trouble refitting a headlamp bulb on my F10. The new bulb is in the holder but I can’t get it to lock in place. I think it twisted out anti-clockwise so I’ve been trying to line it up and twist clockwise but it won’t lock in. Any tips greatly appreciated.

    Hi guys, New here and been a while since I worked on a car so quite new to modern car systems, please bear with me. However I'm a skilled electronic engineer. I've got a F30 320D which has done around 85k. The other morning I noticed the yellow warning light in the dash display, and in the check...

    Hi there, I've noticed that when I use the washer jets and the headlamp washers come on also, the drivers side one often doesn't retract properly leading me to have to push it back in manually when I get out of the car. Has anyone else had this and is it a simple fix? J:)

    Hi to all, I have had my beloved 528i for almost ten years now and it is 21 years old but still like new. That is part of the problem though! I have never been at all happy with the light from the dipped beam setting on the headlights. I can hardly see enough road to go 30mph at night on...

    Help. I've tried to order this part twice now and got the wrong pump . The faulty pump has the numbers 1 378 875 058 PAC 12V 0 392 040 004 written on it. Can anyone help me find this part please? Steve

    Has anyone tried to check the dampers fitted to the headlamp pods? Probably not, but they are very prone to losing all damping capability and this causes the pods to shake when up and the headlamps are in use. It is pretty straightforward to replace them and can be done without removal of the...

    Afternoon, I am doing the typical headlamp cover replacement for my 2001 530D Touring. The OSF unit was made in 2003 (a replacement) and is glued with epoxy, so I am unable to do the repair on that, unlike the NSF. I bought a mastic glued OSF version with broken adjusters, which I replaced, but...

    Is there something I'm missing? I removed my 06 facelift headlights to install angel eyes, the power on is connected to the aux live in the ecu box as suggested in all the installation how to's, I first noticed the nearside leveler wasn't working and the offside was OK, later the same day the...

    Anyone know of a way to override the control logic and force the washers on for test purposes?
  14. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Took the car for MOT and it failed on a couple of fixable items (needs a tyre and have cleaned the contacts on a rear bulb that was rather dim) but the biggest problem is that the headlight washers do not work. There is no power to the pump and the fuses check out O.K. so I was hoping that it...

    Anyone have any pics of headlamp air reservoirs and where are they located ???

    I am going to try to make my headlamp lenses 'as new' as they have become very cloudy over the years. Got my 600 grit, 1200 grit and 2000 grit sheets of sanding paper .... water spray bottle and a tube of toothpaste for the final buff. I've studied most of the 'How to do it' videos on here and...

    Just got the car back after a few days in the garage. I've had the bumper straightened out and resprayed, windows done and wheels refurbished (looks the part with the tints :cool) however having problems with the washer jets. The offside jet doesn't retract and the nearside doesn't extend at...

    Sorry, I'm sure you have covered this before, but I was trying to answer a question for someone quickly. Can I simply disconnect old lights from 1999 E39 and re-connect 2001 headlights or are cable adaptors required. Thanks.

    Hi, is there a way to manually operate the headlamp wash on an E60 Msport? It appears that only one side is spraying.
