Is your F10/F11/F07 headlight suffering from one or more of the following?

  • Water ingress 
  • Heavy condensation & excessive misting on the inside of the headlight 
  • Angel eyes are not working
  • Eyebrow not working
  • Indicators not working
  • Orange 3 LED corner markers not working
  • Headlight lighting system failure/headlight adaptive failure/vertical aim failure on your speedo & iDrive system

If that's the case, we've got you covered - our refurb and repair service will get your headlight back to how it should be without buying new ones.

The Cause

Water ingress is a widespread problem on the F10/F11/F07 adaptive xenon/xenon headlights. It's usually from the factory headlight sealant's failure, seals' degradation, or blown gaskets. 

The Solution

As part of our refurbishment and repair service, we'll carry out the following:

  • Inspect the headlight to ensure that there's no corrosion on the headlight plugs/sockets 
  • Pressure test the headlight to identify the source of the water ingress 
  • Remove the headlight lens non-destructively and remove all of the old sealant 
  • Dry the headlight out to remove all traces of water
  • Apply specific fluids and greases to remove light corrosion internally
  • Supply and fit a new headlight lens
  • Replace all factory liquid gaskets with KYCS uprated gaskets that exceed OEM specifications
  • Replace all factory caps with refurbished KYCS replacements that exceed OEM specifications
  • Pressure test & water test the headlight to ensure that there isn't any water ingress in the future

If you have intermittent error codes on your iDrive for lighting system failure/adaptive system failure or the following exterior lights aren't constantly working (angel eyes, eyebrow, 3 orange corner dots, indicators, eyebrow), this typically points to a faulty water-damaged TMS module. We can additionally fit a new TMS that's supplied to us at the same time for no additional cost. We only supply brand-new genuine TMS modules from the main dealer and don't recommend using aftermarket suppliers or products. This service does not include any exterior components such as the TMS or angel eye drivers. Our repair process is to the bare headlight as outlined above. If your headlight is water damaged, multiple components are more than likely water damaged/corroded and might need replacing - our repair service does not include replacement electric components.

If your TMS socket is corroded or water-damaged, we now have brand new replacement internal harnesses covering the external headlight plug and TMS socket for the following headlights;

  • F10/F11/F07 pre LCI xenon
  • F10/F11/F07 pre LCI adaptive xenon
  • F10/F11 LCI xenon
  • F10/F11 LCI adaptive xenon

If a new harness is required due to the constant water ingress for an extended period of time without any resolution steps being taken, we will notify you when the TMS socket is inspected. Pricing from £80 + VAT for a new harness fitted within this service, depending on the headlight variant. 

Post Purchase

Once you've purchased the service you require, you can either; 

  • Drop your headlight(s) off to us 
  • Post your headlight(s) off to us
  • Drop your car off to us (if selecting additional fitting)

Due to a large amount of headlights coming into us, please check our availability before placing an order as we may not be able to accept your headlights immediately. 

Once we have your headlight(s) in hand, we'll let you know, check them in and start then the following business day. When the headlights are complete, we'll notify you that they're ready for collection/outgoing postage. 

Turnaround Time (With/Without Exchange)

Our turnaround time is 7 days; however, this will be extended if the 7 days are interrupted by a bank holiday or national holiday or if the scope of work that needs to be undertaken is more than the initial order (for example; upgraded projectors, blackout paintwork, or changing out a corroded internal wiring harness). 

For headlights that we hold in stock for exchange, we'll be able to do a same day turnaround for vehicles coming into us with fitting, or next working day turnaround for headlights posted/dropped into us without fitting.

Our exchange process is based on using our inventory headlights in stock that have already been refurbished in advance, and directly swapping with your headlights. This will then take your headlights in, and then refurbish them ready for the next client. Your headlights will be tested upon receipt to confirm what is required to get them functional again using our bench testing facilities, and your invoice will reflect this. Your headlights must be OEM, not modified, and not damaged in order to be eligible for exchange. 

Due to a large amount of headlights coming into us, please check our availability before placing an order as we may not be able to accept your headlights immediately.
