Hi, if the bulb is just blown then you can replace it by removing the cover off the back of the headlight (black cover, rotates about 1/4 turn to remove) and just pull the bulb socket out of its retainer. It's the small round thing just beside the main bulb assembly, with 2 wires going to it. Once its out, just pull the bulb out, fit the new one, and reassemble. If it is the same side as the battery, you may have to remove the battery to get enough room to get in there to replace the bulb. If you remove the battery, you'll need the radio code, if its still got the original radio.
If the headlight lens is broken from some accident damage, then you'll have to take the bumper off to get the headlight out and replace it.
Hope this helps.

My dash lights shut off when I turn the headlights on..why?

Looks like the light switch assembly is malfunctioning.
Most of the cars today uses plastic in the switches, plastic that acts as cams to push the metal contactor in the switch might have melted down and failed to push the contacts in the parklight mode.
Replace that switch and tell us what happened.
Hope that helps!

2 fuses blew in the parking light circuit .

If you haven't identified the cause of the temporary short circuit or overload there is a very good chance it will recur.
Check for chafed or cut insulation on parklight wiring, particuarly around the lampsocket area.
Check for water /corrosion within parklight lamp sockets.
Check for possible problems on any wiring to towbar connection (if fitted).
Check parklight circuit connection to any aftermarket alarm system fitted

Fuse block #33 immediatly blows the fuse. controls left tail light and about 4 other circuits. Problem started after my alarm started going off for no reason. 1998 323is coupe

According to the BMW manual circuit diagram F33 feeds power through the parklight 'on' switch to left front parklight and left tail lights (all grey/violet wire).

Suggest you remove all left side parklight bulbs, then check fuse does not blow.
If it blows without bulbs installed, check wiring/lamp sockets for short to earth.

Instal one bulb at a time, checking fuse status each time.

Perhaps spurious alarm problem is related to faulty alarm wiring- especially if the alarm is an aftermarket installation. Check quality of any spliced joints to the parklight circuit for possible shorts or water ingress.

sounds like there is a short somewhere. you need to start checking things with a multi meter, could be a bad switch. I would recommend picking up a factory service manual for your vehicle off of ebay. If you need any further assistance let me know.
