Re: Front O/S indicator not working

I've tried both bulb holders on the passenger side and they both work on the passenger side but both do not work on the drivers side. Do you mean the contacts on the headlights or on which bulb holders themselves? In that case, forget that ^. I guess it's time to pop the headlight out (bumper off) ...

Re: Front O/S indicator not working

The bulb holder (torpedo fins) acts as both the holder and the contacts, I'd pull it out and inspect the contacts. A new one (BMW # 63126940665) shouldn't be silly money, about £10 from a main dealer. I've tried both bulb holders on the passenger side and they both work on the passenger side but bo...

Re: Front O/S indicator not working

Is this the Cat C that was bodged back together? It's tricky diagnosing weird electrical problems from a distance, over the internet, at the best of times. Not being able to assume anything is correct and unbroken makes life a lot harder. :( Where did they measure the power being received, at the b...

Re: Front O/S indicator not working

Took it to a local garage today who told me that they think it needs a whole new headlight unit because the indicator is receiving power but just not functioning. I have noticed that there are some nicks on the wiring to the headlight but cannot see if there are any broken wires. What are your thoug...

Front O/S indicator not working

Hi All, Sorry in advance for my third post in a week on 'BMW problems'. Yesterday, I cleaned out my windscreen washer reservoir and filters which was a big success! Finally can clean my windscreen. I also changed all of the bulbs in the front of the car. All we're working with no issues before apart...

Re: Help identifying connection behind front O/S Wing

Any ideas on this? My o/s front indicator has stopped working since I discovered this yesterday. Could this be linked to it? Cant seem to where it fits in to.

Which would you recommend please people Here's a picture of the Osram Nightbreakers I added today, definitely brighter than the previous bulbs.

Help identifying connection behind front O/S Wing

Hi All, Was cleaning out the washer fluid bottle and replacing a fog light on my 118d M Sport today so had the wheel arch removed from the front O/S. While changing the front fog light I noticed that a cable attached to the fog light and horn was not connected. Anybody know what this is? It's the co...

Re: Front Bumper Adjustment E87

I don't think any official inspection of repairs to a Cat C car are required before it can be put back on the road. Did you buy it privately or from a dealer and what were you told about its accident damage? Might be worth getting car checked over by a mechanic or perhaps getting it MOT'd to ensure...

Re: Front Bumper Adjustment E87

I'd be wondering why its so badly fitted. Has it been taken off for some reason or been in an accident ? It's a cat C and been pretty poorly repaired. I'm wondering if it's been properly inspected and returned to the road. Do you know if there's a way to check this? I adjusted the further 4 torx sc...

Re: Front Bumper Adjustment E87

Yeah, your bumper cover does look a little low. There should be 6 large Torx screws along the top, I'd start by releasing those & adjusting it's position backwards.
