Well corner light's been acting up since couple of weeks ago, so I took it out..AGAIN, ADOUBLEGAIN, ATRIPPLEGAIN!!!!! :banghead::banghead:

Take a look at it








Seems like bulb socket melts down the nipple..I thought those pair of bulbs were defective, so I've ordered a pair, it happened again!!! Not even sure I can get replacement from them.
Anyone having same problem like this??

I got the "vacuum chrome bulb" set for 7 bucks off amazon and haven't had problems. Been on the car since christmas.

i have the same issue. you need new sockets! the e46 cars have this issue where the corner bulb socket's metal contact rust/wears down from dirt and moisture and melts the bulb tips.

sockets are like $12 at the dealership

i was having the problem a few days ago, what i did was use a screw driver to remove dirt and rust from socket connectors and after that it hasnt given me a problem since.
