Mein Auto: 328i
new left xenon bulb won't work

Have '07 328i. Had to remove cover from under wheel well to access bulb. Went to dealer for new bulb ($300), replaced bulb, and still won't work. Its a one piece bulb. Right side still works fine. fuses 56&57 are good. Still have light indicator in dash. Car still in air. Any Ideas? Please help. Getting ready to go to dealer.

Why did you think the 'globe' has blown? Xenon globes have 12yr life (typical). Tyry the rh globe in the lh unit and put your new globe in the working side to test it. I guess the lhs will still not work. Start changing components r to l until you make the lh work. That is the part you should have bought..
