hid bulb in my 2006 x5
Would anyone can help me on how to replace a hid bulb in my headlamps? I was able to remove de bad bulb but couldn't put it back in place. at the base of the bulb there is a metal box that by twisted it should lock in place. Any help would be appreciated and if you have pictures much better.

If you're talking about the Xenon lamps then they will slide in two directions. You'll notice two bumps that need to align with the inserts and try again.

Are you having a problem getting the high voltage connector to snap back on? I went through this recently and could not get the connector to turn.

Look inside the connector, there will be a plastic ring. Make sure the notches on the plastic ring line up with the notches on the metal connector. It should slip right on if they are lined up.

thank you very much, it was a matter of alignment of the ballast.

IT IS NICE TO KNOW ABOUT ALL YOU GUYS OUTTHERE ALWAYS READY TO HELP. my bmw x5 2006 has developed this weird air conditioned problem: Sometimes after starting the engine, the A/C refuse to work and all of the sudden the compressor kicks in and everything is fine, it cools just fine. what can be causing the compressor not to start normally? I would appreciate any help.
