Zenon head light problem 330ci 2001

Anyone have this problem, with my zenon light on, under quick braking my drivers headlight looks like it moves up then down..? The lights work perfect but I'm not sure if its a quick fix or not??

Not to be an a$$ but it is xenon. I have them on my 323ci and have never noticed this problem. Maybe it is not latched all the way in. Open your hood and make sure the headlight is not lose. Hope this helps.

There are some pins that break inside the headlight I have been trying to source a part to repair right now you have to replace the whole light.

1. Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
2. Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
