Headlight motor swap - needing some advice

Post by Bunford » Tue Jan 02, 2018 11:15 am

My Depo v1 headlights just arrived and I am eagern to install them ASAP.

I have found a YouTube guide on changing the headlights on an E87, so I think I can get by OK with that. However, the guide doesn't mention swapping over the motors. I've searched here and can't seem to find anything about it.

Anybody got any advice or know of any guides on how to swap over the levelling motors from my OEM headlights to my new Depo headlights?

Much appreciated!
