Which Bulb to Replace?? Total Novice!

Hi All,

New here and have a problem with a 2007 330i BMW. Basically the bulb warning light is on and its the front light. I need to know, when driving in good day light without the lights being switched on, the name of the bulb for the light that seems to stay on permanently?

Sorry if im being thick, just dont wanna buy the wrong bulb!!!

Cheers

Your DRL lights are also your high beams. Go to your auto parts store and they'll have what you need.

Yea it's your DRL. If you pull the stalk toward you, the high beams will come on and you will see which is out. Pushing away from you activates the xenon high beams.

It's an H7 bulb if I recall correctly. Might be an H3 though.
