Question about 1994 BMW 5 Series
The headlamps on my 1994 model BMW 540i (E34) don't shine brightly anymore. The 'brights' are great, but the regular beam is very dim. I have the correct bulbs fitted -- and SA laws prohibit fitting brighter bulbs than spec.
I suspect either that the glass has become dirty on the inside or that the inside reflective surfaces have tarnished / rusted (or both). I want to get inside it with a suitable polish etc. (Replacing the fitting is cost-prohibitive.)
Can anyone guide me to an online manual for dismantling and refitting the headlamps correctly? And any advice on the correct polishing / cleaning products?
In anticipation, many thanks!
Please check E34 Blogs, I have seen instructions to Remove projector headlamps, clean the reflector lens and re-install.
Good Luck, I sold my E34!!
