My Ride: 330d Coupe M-Sport
Pheasant damage, but what's broken?

Hi Sillie,

A pheasant flew into my nearside headlight and now it just points down at the floor. Based on your encyclopedic knowledge of these xenon units, can you help me to identify what's broken so I can decided whether it's worth the 600 my dealer wants to fit a complete new unit...

As you can see from the picture, the "eyeball" appears to have come loose and is no longer a snug fit within the housing. I'm assuming that's all that's wrong, but I guess there could be more to it than that.

What do you think - time for a complete new unit? My car's a 2004 330cd coupe and the dealer tells me there are no spares for this unit, just a complete replacement

Any thoughts/suggestions much appreciated.
