A small but annoying fault with my fairly new(to me) E46 Coupe.
Previous owner failed to mention(of course) that there is a fault with driver side headlight, intermittently you need to pop the bonnet and wiggle it to get it to work. I took the holder out and the driver side has obviously been overheating as the contacts are oxidised and it has browned some of the housing.
It had 100w bulbs in it, is this the problem do you think? I have tried to clean up the contacts and replaced the bulbs with 55W bulbs to see if that solves the issue. Still has a nice white light so hoping I won't notice too much of a difference, looks like the 100w has affected the inside of the lens as well - hopefully not enough to affect the MOT.
Would any of you have a spare driver side head light lamp holder, if they're sided?

Any thoughts welcome
