I am assuming that you have a burned out head light bulb.
1) Open hood.
2) Working in back of headlight assembly, grasp rear of bulb socket (harness connector) and turn counterclockwise 90 degrees. Pull bulb out of headlight assembly.
3) Disconnect harness connector from bulb (gently pry, it's plastic)
4) Installation is reverse of removal. (Do not touch halogen bulb with bare skin-oils from hand will cause bulb to burn out.) Align tabs on bulb base to cutouts on rear of lens assembly. (Note bottom tab is wider than other two) Secure bulb by rotating clockwise 90 degrees.

SOURCE: S60 HEADLAMP BULB CHANGE

I have had the same problem and have managed to Fix it!!

Just behind the headlamp is a black box that contains the engine management units. You have to remove some of this box......First unclip the two clips nearest to the engine and remove the top cover of the box. Then there are another two clips one by the wing and one by the engine that will release the lower section of the box. You will need a large flat screwdriver to open the final clip at the front of the box and, with some care, you can remove the lower part of this box. The engine management units ( the two silver boxes inside the balck box) will be left in place and should be disturbed as little as possible.

When this is done you can get access to the bulb. First remove the rubber cover from the rear of the light assembly. Then you need a flat mirror so that you can see inside the headlamp to see the connector, clip and bulb. Pull off the connector to the bulb - you must do this with the bulb still in place (you will not be able to remove it with the connector still fitted). Then you have to push the clip at the top to unlatch it and allow it to hinge down away from the back of the bulb. I bent an old screwdriver to 90 degrees and filed a small notch in it to help me push the clip and unlatch it. Note which way up the bulb comes out so that you can fit the new one the same way up. I know it will only go in one way but getting it correct first time saves messing about for ages! With the new bulb fitted, push up the clip and latch it in place again. Then fit the connector and test it before you refit the rubber cover and the black box. Remember to take care when removing and refitting the black box. It does come off - honest!

Good luck

The headlight is a Halogen that comes out the back.
Find the wire harness and follow it to the back of the light to a rubber cover. Pull the rubber cover off the back and find a holder. Unscrew or releade the wire "spring" then pull out the old bulb.
BR SURE NOT to touch the glass part of the new bulb.....

REMOVE INDICATOR LIGHT


When you changed out the bulbs do the lights work? Or is the indicator light on and the lights don't work. If the latter then you likely have a bad connection to the switch or a bad relay.

2001 BMW 325x1 - one out of two xenon headlamp


It is very common to have failures of bulbs and/or igniters on these BMW lighting systems. First thing I would try is to swap the bulb from one side to the other. If the problematic bulb works on the side that works fine and the bulb that does work fine doesn't on the other side, it is the bulb. If not then it is probly the igniter. Make sure the ignition is off and be EXTREMELY CAREFUL when working with this system, they put out high voltage and can hurt you if you are not careful. If all else fails, take it to a good technician WITH experience with BMW. Good Luck

I have 2006 Grand Prix How do I change head lamp?


Caution Halogen bulbs contain gas under pressure. Handling a bulb improperly could cause it to shatter into flying glass fragments. To help avoid personal injury:
Turn off the lamp switch and allow the bulb to cool before changing the bulb.
Leave the lamp switch OFF until the bulb change is complete. Always wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb. Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass. Keep dirt and moisture off the bulb. Properly dispose of the used bulb. Keep halogen bulbs out of the reach of children.
Raise the hood.
Remove the headlamp assembly bolts from the upper fascia support.
Slide the headlamp assembly outward enough to release the headlamp bracket tabs from the slots in the upper fascia support.
Position the headlamp assembly away from the vehicle body to access the electrical connector.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp assembly.
Remove the headlamp assembly from the vehicle.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp bulb/socket.
Remove the headlamp bulb/socket retainer ring from the headlamp, by turning counterclockwise.
Remove the headlamp bulb/socket from the headlamp assembly.
