My Ride: 2004 330ci
Xenon wiring

04 330ci. My passenger side Xenon quit working a couple months ago, and I diagnosed the problem pretty quickly to be the wiring between the ballast and the xenon. I tried to patch it up, and it worked for a while but now it has failed again. Insulation is cracked to heck, and the wiring is breaking with the insulation. Before I make another stab at it with solder and shrink tubing, is there a source for just the wiring harness or do I need to buy another part to get the package? I've read the forums looking for a link and searched for the part to no avail. Thanks in advance for any help.

Ah, tough one. I think the ballast is mounted under the headlight and there some wires coming from the connector down there to the xenon bulb?

PM the member silleidiot, he can help you out since he has taken apart those headlights a few times.
