It's a bulb replacement. If it's anything similar to my Audi, there is a cover on the back of the headlight housing that you pop off. Then you can reach in, pull the wire connector off the bulb, and unclip a metal retainer over the bulb, and pull the bulb out. Installation of the new one is the reverse. Just be SURE not to touch the glass part of the bulb. Skin oils can cause a halogen bulb to burn very hot and burn out very quickly. If you do touch the glass, wipe it gently but thoroughly on a cotton cloth to clean it off before you install it.

SOURCE: where is the engine filter

If I recall correctly, its at the trailing end of the engine and gets unscrewed from below. If you want to replace it don't forget the light coating of oil to seal the seal!

Bmw 318i E46 model 2003 automatic xenon headlights ok but the dushboard shows warning light for both of them


Do you have the correct bulbs? Did you check to see whether any of the other front lights are out? I don't know which instrument panel you have but have a walk around the car with the lights on and see if any of the lights are actually out..

Could be a bad connection. The warning indicator measures resistance in the circuit. Clean and grease each bulb socket with some dielectric grease.

2006 Volvo XC90 AWD V8 with H7 halogen headlights always displays 'headlight bulb failure' warning even though my headlights are both working fine. How do I fix this?


Try to check the bulb on the light unit the fault is given,checking the connector,or even renewing the bulb,probably the resistance of the bulb is down in bright but can not noticed. It had happened to a customer of mine on a BMW 528i ,even the lights were working fine,I renewed the faulty stated by the vehicle ECU and then the warning on the dash gone.

What is the yellow warning light on my 08 2l turbo passat?


Hi there:
A yellow warning light comes on (Headlight Warning) when it detects a blown bulb; the same warning light comes on when you switch on the ignition, the light should go out when you apply the brakes. If it stays on it has detected a blown bulb.


Hope this helps.

I have a warning that indicated left low beam malfunction. How do I resolve this issue.


  • It means the low beam is out on the left side of your vehicle. You will need to replace the bulb and things will be back to normal.
  • Changing the bulb on this vehicle is more troublesome than most vehicles.
  • I think on the 2006 750Li you have to actually loose the bumper a bit to get to the headlight to wiggle loose. Some of the newer BMW's are made so the bumper comes up on the bottom of the headlight assembly just enough to make the bumper have to be loosened to be able to get the headlight assembly out enough to change the bulb.

My headlamp warning indicator on dash board will not turn off after I replaced the headlights. Any suggestions on resetting?


You need to replace the bulb with the exact same one. If you use 2 different bulbs it will trigger the warning light because of the difference in resistance.
