e90 xenon dipped headlight

....light not working.

They are factory fitted pre lci xenons. Drivers side main and dip work fine.
Passenger side, main beam works but not dipped headlight.

I take it it will be the bulb and not ballast or shutter issues?

Thanks guys

Swap the bulbs around, that will let you know if it's a bulb or ballast.

For anyone doing this, passenger side (right hand drive car) can be done through the flap in the wheel well. Wheel can stay on, just needs to be jacked up a bit.

Drivers side, wheel liner has to come off to get full access and so wheel has to come off.

Osram Cool Blue Intense

Just thought i'd let you guys know, these 'Cool blue intense' are not blue in any way that i can see, apart from at initial turn on for a few seconds. They are a pure clean white but definitely not blue. Slightly annoying as they purport to be a little blue.

Will report back tonight after dark driving now that i have replaced both sides.
