2003 e39 headlight adjusters

Recommended Posts

They are the same. Facelift and pre-facelift are different.

 

If we are talking about E39 2003 these late model headlight have permanent glue and the cover can't be removed with typical heat treatment.

But in both cases youcan replace them without opening or baking the headlights.

Looks like you just cut a piece out of the top so you can get in

No...

Where your headlight bulbs are, you use those after you removed the bulb holder and the rubber boots to get to the adjusters...takes a bit of finess but very doable, i did 3 headlights that way

There is a vid on you tube where it's tackled through the bulb openings.

I did it swore a whole lot and wanted to stamp on them and set fire to the wreckage but managed it.

Make sure you make a note of the euro levers that are accessed through the top caps to which way they are pointing.

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

No mate you need to remove the headlights, 4 bolts and they are out.

They adjusters are a pain but if you have small hands you ll manage fine
