Headlight Headaches

Shortly after I purchased my beautiful 07 650i conv. the left front low beam stopped working. I thought I would kill two birds w/one stone. I ordered led angel eye upgrades and a pair of brighter bulbs for the headlights, sticker shock. The supplier sent H2 bulbs I need H1. I go to an autoparts store get a single bulb (no return), no fix. I take the headlight assembly out, see that there was an access cover missing and figure something has been wet. I take the ballast apart and it is corroded. Buy new ballast, does not fix. Take it to a dealer and get a diagnostic. They found faulty light module (footwell) and low beam optical dislodged. I declined $1000 repair and went to an independent. I have since driven through high water and gotten water in the right side assembly, taken it apart to dry everything but when I put car back together I must have left the low beam optical unplugged ( or dislodged like the dealer diagnosis). I am getting no adaptive headlight movement and a trouble code with it.
What am I missing? Is the plug in the front bumper, headlight or what?
