One or two front turn signal bulbs is busted. Check your front turn signal bulbs and replace it.

If you remove the headlight assembly you will have access to the turn signal bulb.

It looks as if I'll have to crawl under the front of the car to access the bulb to replace it.

Look in the owners manual. It will show you how. If you don't have the owners manual, go to the VW web site and download it.

I just changed a turn signal bulb in my 2001 330xi. I found the answer on Wiki. Look for the question "How do you replace the front turn signal bulb located on a 2000 BMW 323?" Same design. And, surprisingly, very easy to change. Should be similar to this:

In order to change the signal light, you need to look under the bumper. There are 5 to 6 bolts that need to be removed in order to remove the cover.Ê

Open the hood. Near the front of the turn signal assembly there is a Phillips head screw. Loosen but do not remove the screw; it releases the front of the assembly. You then need to pull forward to release the pin holding the rear of the assembly. Reverse the above to replace the assembly.

I get better answers from my eight ball than a Ford website.

Turn signal bulbs are in both front and rear of the vehicle.See "Related Questions" below for specific instructions for both fronts and rears.

I'm not sure about the 2001, but on a '97, under the hood there are 2 inverted "L" shaped slide clips near the front corners. These pull straight up and allow you to pull out the headlight/turn signal unit. Twist the turn signal housing 1/4 turn CCW to expose the bulb and replace. Or, take it to the dealer and let them do it.

in my 2001 A4, it was the hazard light switch that had to be replaced. maybe thaqt's your issue also

2001 BMW 330i turn signal light bulb replacement: Purchase the correct replacement turn signal light bulb(s) first, before disassembling the vehicle. See sources and related links below for replacement bulb information. Then consult your owner's manual for the turn signal light bulb replacement procedure. As simple as it sounds, the owner's manual is the best place to start for bulb replacement instructions and illustrations. You may want to consider replacing both left and right at the same time in order to keep brightness and color equal (optional).

If your blinker is blinking at a faster rate than normal, it usually means that one of the bulbs is out. For example, if the left turn signal blinks faster than usual, check either the front or the rear left turn signal. If both turn signals seem okay, check the front left parking light. (this is the front orange light that is on when your headlights are on)

If it's like the 2000 there are two plastic wing nuts that hold the head lamp in place. Once loose, the turn signal piece on the side can be taken off. The sockets are about a quarter turn to come out and he bulbs pull straight out and push straight in. Be careful when you replace the head lamp assembly because there is a long plastic "tongue" that has to fit into a socket on the bottom side. Good luck!
