My Ride: 2001 BMW 330ci
Headlight Woes

Hi everyone. I drive a 2001 330ci. Lately, when I'm driving at night the right headlight will go out after 20 - 30 minutes of driving. I'll switch the headlights off and then back on again. The headlight will come back on...but then it will go out again. It will go out faster the longer the drive is.

I'm speculating that the problem is either a contact one or a temperature-related one or perhaps both AND I'm hoping there's a simple solution to this problem that doesn't require prying off the dashboard console.

Has anyone experienced a problem similar to the one I'm having now?

Much appreciation.
