Xenon Light Advice

Hello I'm looking for any tips or info on replacing a xexon igniter unit. The O/S Xenon on my Cooper S has stopped working recently I know it's not the bulb and have checked all the connections. I've managed to get two xenon headlight units quite cheap from a wrecked cooper s and plan to swap the controller unit out of one into mine. Has any one here done this before and can give me some advice. I do plan to disconnect the battery

PS If anyone wants a controller unit or a D2R bulb for a reasonable price let me know as they are surplus to requirements.

Cheers

Peter

D2r or D2s?

Is the igniter not located behind the cluster and you can swapthem across?

Hello and thanks a lot for your reply they are D2R bulbs as mine is a 2002. OK I thought it looked quite simple but I just wanted to make sure there was nothing I had to watch out for.

Cheers

Hi, have you still got that controller unit? I'm in need of one myself! Did the swap solve your problem with the xenons? As I have the same problem on my 52 plate mini coop s, the passenger side flickers and goes off after 10 mins or so. I'm guessing its the ballast - the controller unit. How easy was yours to replace?

Let me know if you still have it!

Cheers, Rich

I have one Xenon headlamp that has not worked for months. I actually changed by lamp (at considerable expense), but that was not the problem. It worked intermittently for some time, but now not at all. My mechanic told me I needed an igniter, but when I did a search all I came up with is a controller. I figured they were the same thing, but when I read previous posts, I see that they appear to be different parts of the light assemblage. Can I get one without the other, or are they usually sold together?
