Headlight issues (replacing angel eyes)

I just installed the L.E.D angle eyes from bavauto on my 04 545i and one of my halos on the LH side is the wrong color. Long story short I took these off of my 07 530i I sold and put them on my 545i so they were working great on the 530. I couldnt quite figure out as to why one of the halos would be yellow and the other the L.E.D. color its suppose to be. I noticed (not sure of the name) that what the L.E.D. points at to project the light has a yellowish tent to it. I tried to get it off and nothing came off.

SO does anybody have any ideas?? I will post some pictures below thanks!


You can see the yellow halo Im talking about.



Cant quite tell, looked better on my phone but What I circled is what I was talking about having the yellow on it Half of the circle is yellow and it will not come off.



L.E.D. Light is fine



Here's the passenger side. Which how it should be.

The beam splitter may be misaligned or there may be dirt on the side that directs the light into the inner angel eye.

Does that part just pull out? That is the housing the light goes in to?

Unfortunately no, its part of the headlight enclosure just inside of the slot that you twist the angel eye bulb into. Can't really say the best way to access it other than to take the enclosure off the car and start experimenting.

Some long q-tips would probably be the most useful

Ok thanks. I'll try to figure something out.
