2004 BMW 330Xi- Xenon headlight height sensor



I got my control arm changed and the mechanic told me that the wire for the Xenon height sensor had no place to go and I needed a bracket of some sort...after some googling and I landed on this page:

https://www.pelicanparts.com/BMW/tec...ur_AWD_BMW.htm

Called the dealership as my local parts guy does not carry them. They listed a few extra parts but do I need them?

Picture attached (part is circled)

Is that all I need? I was thinking more of #7.

I don't think it was even installed on the old control arm as I find my headlights to be pointing on the floor when I bought it.

Thanks again

Yea, it's probably 7 and 8 you're missing.
In the mean time you can probably tape/zip tie your sensor in a position that would level your headlights.

For parts look at rockauto.com

Famous last words... lol.

Yea, hopefully not too much. It's $13 USD, so probably $40CAD at local dealer.
