Front Left Turn Signal - Help Identifying Part # (Pics Incl.)
 
1 Attachment(s)
My front left turn signal is not working. The illuminated light symbol was on in my dash. I did some investigating, and it seems that the bulb is not making contact with the housing. I took apart the light assembly and pushed down on the bulb, with the turn signal in gear, and it worked. I let go of my finger, and the bulb popped up about 1/8 of an inch, and poof, it stopped working. I have attached a picture of the parts.

I have a 2002 330i.

What are the part numbers for the black piece (which fits into the white housing) and the actual white housing?

I also attached a diagram that i found on realoem, but it doesnt seem to match my OEM setup. It would be #3, but that does not look like what I have. Very weird.

If it is indeed #3, would the black piece that fits inside come with the part? Which #3 is it? There are 2 to choose from. I found it on pelican parts for $7.80.

I want to order the bulb housing myself, since its probably 8-10$, and I can fix it myself. Any help with the part #?

problem solved!

i figured out that one of the side metal pieces in the bulb housing was not contacting the side of the light bulb. It was not bent enough to touch the bulb. I just used a pair of pliers and pulled it out a bit more. Voila, light works.
