    2003 e39 headlight adjusters

    As i found out guys & gals, there is a secret to replacing the headlight adjusters that none of the YouTube vid`s show, cause they are all from the good old US of A, when changing the inner adjuster, you will find that once you feed the adjuster in, it feels like it`s hitting a spring, BUT, its actually hitting the Euro adjuster lever, If you remove the twist cap from the top of the headlight, you can move the lever out of the way & this also allows you to then work the adjuster into place using 2 hands/4 fingers, the first one took me 6hrs of shouting & swearing, the second took just 2hrs of shouting & swearing, cause it`s still a major ball ache to do. I really hope this extra info helps anyone else in the future. These times are not for removing & refitting the headlamps.

    Hi guys, today my drivers side front window stopped working correctly, it only goes down just past half way and also seems a little sluggish up & down, also wont work on continuous up or down, it does however go straight up & down, any advice please. P.S All other windows work fine.

    OBC confusion.

    Hiya Rosie, i tried the lead you recommended and also a external aerial but with no joy, so i presume its the Chinese head unit at fault, i`ve asked Duncan if he still has one, hopefully that will sort it

    Do you need to take the headlights out or can you do them in situ
