: Any probs with head lights?

05-25-07, 09:10 PM
I have noticed that my front passenger side head lamp flickers a bit when I hit a bump, then it stops after a few minuts, this only happens for a short time. Anyone have this prob?

Flickering, no, fluttering, yes.:tisk:

is that common with these kind of lights? And should I be concerned about it?

Mine do it when I accelerate at low RPMs- annoys the piss out of me.

One of these days I'm going to have my techs check the grounds, but since I rarely drive at night I always forget.

Had mine replaced because it was slowing leaking water from a bad seal and the water damaged it. Tech said he has seen water half way up the head :eek: lights...

Your probably seeing flutter like was said above, which is normal due to the precise nature of the projectors and the way they are mounted. My BMWs all did this over bumps.

If your seeing FLICKERS though, thats an indication of a bad ballast, and the dealer should replace it.

Stiff sidewall runflats don't help. I have the tire pressure up over 35 psi and my aftermarket HIDs rattle hard.
