You wil probably have to take the headlamp off, never opende one up but most of the time they are retained by two screws on the top of the headlamp and clipped at the buttom. Could also be clips or metal braces instead of screws, and you may have to take some trims off to get the headlamp off.

Slant6nova was close but I couldn't get the right side of the headlamp free to pull out the assembly even after freeing the trims. I was finally able to get enough slack after removing everything (cowling fasteners, fuse box, battery cover and battery vent) to access from the back side. has to be an easier way.

How to change screen washer bottle on a bmw e90 330d 2006 as it is leaking after all the frost. Seem to be in wheel arch?


to access the windscreen bottle, you have to take off the front wheel, wheelarch and dicconnect filler tube. Using 10 mm socket take off one bolt holding the bottle. To reinstall take off side indicator to make it easy for you.
for E90 model it is normal to have leak when the bottle is full. the water is coming out from breather on top of bottle. but if the fluid is complately drain, then there's something wrong with it.

Left zenon low beam flickers and the left front bulb warning indicator is on


Sounds like the power ballast is failing - that's what takes the 12v signal from the car and amplifies it up to a level sufficient for driving the xenon bulb. Swap the ballasts between the headlights (they're easy to dismount) and see if the flicker goes to the other side (swap only the ballasts - leave the bulbs in their existing positions). If the flicker moves to the other side, the ballast is the problem. If it stays on the left side, the bulb needs replacement.

Search online for the bulbs - the dealer will kill you on pricing (the Audi dealership wants $200 each for my A4's xenon bulbs, but I can find them online for about $30 per pair (or less)). You'd want to order a D2S style bulb for an OEM BMW fitment, in 4300k color temperature.

Windshield washer pump


if it is the same as a 2002 UK spec then the washer pump is situated at the bottom of the washer bottle. the washer bottle is situated behind the inner guard on the same side as the filler cap for the washer bottle.
the pump is push fitted to the water bottle.
if u have been using window washer additives then they can form a slime that stops the pump working.
if that is the case then remove the pump and wash it under the warm tap to clean it out and refit.
hope this helps

Left xenon ligth is not out... but has changed color from the cool blue ... to a slight pinkish color? is it the bulb or something else


xenon bulb has two electrodes and they will erode away if the bulb is old. The color that you see is probaby the erotion of the electrode mixed with the inert gas and metal halide. All HID bulb will change color over time. For example a brand new 4300K yellowish bulb will eventually turn into a 5000k color bulb which is purple and white

If your bulb is not too old but the colour has changed then that means your bulb has premature problem. Frequently switching on and off the bulb can age the bulb by up to 50%.

I strongly recommended to change both bulbs, so they have even color.

Cheers
