F11 water in Headlight

3 posts in this topic

Since last nights rainfall. I got into my F11 (2012 530D) this morning and found these errors  Headlight vertical aim control and side light error.

The angel eyes light on my NSF is not working nor does the self leveling seem to work.

 

I went on to the forums and found out that it could be water in the headlight (had a leaking gutter dropping water over my bonnet)  https://www.bmwlander.co.uk/index.php?threads/f10-led-sidelight-failure-not-a-simple-bulb-change.1534/

 

opened up the module and quiet a bit of water come out. The round plastic cover that is meant to cover the rear of where the headlight bulb is, was missing which leads me to believe that water has been going in there. I took out the module and dried it with a hair dryer and cleaned it with pcb cleaner, i also got a hair dryer to the rear of the headlight and tried to dry it as best as i could. The angel lights and the auto leveling is still not working (there is some mild steam in the headlight) which i have left open so it can air out. Anyone got any experience or had anything similar happen ?
