SOURCE: xenon headlight problems
there are 3 things that make the xenon in your car work the bulb, an ignitor, and a control module, you know your bulbs are ok so thats good, now you will want to swap the control modules they are a metal box attached to the headlight assembly its roughly 4"x4" you will remove the hheadlight assemblys to get to the module, there are 4 8mm bolts and then it pulls out, it the light follows the control module then thats what you will need if not you will need an ignigtor, as far as the flickering that is moet likely the module going bad, the company that makes this system is AL (automotive lighting) there is an SIB from BMW about this that says under a warr claim both control modules are to be replaced and the bulb of the faulty headlight, however i cant count the number of times i have done all that and still have to replace the ignigtor, If it is the Ign that is alot harder to swap as you have to dis assembly the entire light assembly

SOURCE: how do you replace the
You have to remove the bumper first...
- socket wrench/socket kit
- 8mm socket
- 10mm socket
- flathead screwdriver
- flathead stubby
- torx driver set
- car jack
- monkey (to hold your work lights)
- jack up car (optional)
- At least jack up one side of the car
1) Remove 4 screws on top of bumper ( under hood, above kidney grills)
2) Remove 2 screws in each wheel-well, and clip bumper trim away from wheel-well trim
3)Push wheel-well trim away so you can unfasten 2 screws inside that hold top part of bumper to the car on each side
4) Release about 7 Screws on bottom of bumper from underneath
5) Remove bumper by uncliping each side and then pulling bumper forward
Foglights will stay in place. simply disconnect the cable.
After you remove the bumper and unplug the Foglights
1) To remove the lights you also need to remove the bracket that hold the lights
2) Remove the blots on the bracket and top of headlight.
Installation is in the reverse of removal...
