Question about 2001 BMW Z3
My 1998 z3 is blowing two headlamp fuses when I turn on my high beams. When it blows, I loose my headlights, tachometer, and fuel guage. However, the speedometer and parking lights continue to work?

Spark plug wires may be the cause. for cold damp start issues water is a conducter and will send spark directly to an engine ground not through spark plugs. also look for oil in spark plug wells this can also cause a misfire under certain conditions.

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.
