BMW E46 '99-'05 | Headlight Bulb Change




What do you think about this video?

saddybedangdang: Cheers for the video, worked like a charm!

Tom: Thanks mate, just replaced it! Good and clear video

Pellum Bara: it looks like you rotating anti-clockwise...but you saying the contrary!

Rebecca Campbell: thanks for that, helped me out!

xeoMeee: @Lucas Auer It's an K&N 57i kit 2nd gen.

Reif Reifsnyder: I can't even see the back of the bulb on my car. It's covered by something that I don't know what it is.

melissa morgan: let there be light... and there was light ! took 2 minutes and 15 seconds to get the job done on my 1.8i . Saved £15. FANTASTIC VIDEO .TX SHAI

fr00bers: thats counter-clockwise bub

Tom Jones: nice one

andrewl85: Worked like a charm on my 528i. Thanks for the video!

bombarder16: Buy osram night breaker, it will look nice and wash your engine sometimes. 

BlowingThinking: thank you sir

Shai Avisira: glad to help

UKDREAD: hey just saved me 20 quid fitting! thanks :-)

Owen Brown: Just replaced mine. Thanks for the help.

David King: Just replaced mine. Cheers.

calvinblinkee: So the HID replacement procedure would be different?

GolfingPete60: Shai, When you reinstall the unit you tighten by turning the levers clockwise, not counter-clockwise as stated in your otherwise nice video.

donvee2000: Remember...as the demonstration shows DO NOT touch the bulb with your bare fingers or get any kind of contaminants on the glass. BUT if you do...... clean it with a cotton ball and alcohol. Grease from your fingers will cause uneven heating of the glass and it will crack.

Ranelle Galvez: are you supposed to make the bulb snap into place or it just sits on it like a spring? cause at first my bulb started to smoke, but the second time i turned on the light nothing happened.

xDLXSFx: Love the e46!!

dizzywow: Wrong on the rotation directions. From the perspective of the rear of the assembly, off is counterclockwise, on is clockwise, just like you would expect.

Shai Avisira: I will, thanks!

Steven Stakos: Why don't you upgrade to hids mate they are alot beter brighter and last 5 times more than halogen lights

luchiboy: Is this the same for an E38? (7 series)

larryjohnny: thank you! by chance do you know how to change the ignitor for the xenon headlamps.. I change the bulb and it still didn't work. the dealer told me to buy an ignitor which i found on ebay and a new bulb for about $160, would have been $700 + $150 labor at the dealership.. what a rip off! but how do I install this? Thanks for the tips..

Shai Avisira: just fit no special sound with the bulbs I'm using

pgmorse: Dude- you're awesome!! Thanks so much. I changed my headlamp in 2 minutes - literally.

Ranelle Galvez: is it supposed to makea *snap* sound or just fit into it?

Wylie Stone: nice work!

Andrea Sawyer: Super easy!!! Thanks a bunch

FlakJacket86: thanks a lot man! this was so simple to do. you rock

23forrestgump: Thank you very much, very concise and simple!

Irineo Trejo: Thanks!!!!!!

Darko Marinic: How to install HID Xenon aftermarket H7 bulbs?

Shai Avisira: you should push the bulb's pins into their place in the socket in the right direction. hope I helped..

jc1960: so I switched bulbs and it still doesn't work. What else could it be? fuses? how and where do I check? wiring? any suggestions appreciated.

Shai Avisira: thanks!

D.A.: Thank you.

MrLubba1974: Cheers dude, nice easy step by step guide . Thank you.
