$100 PayPal Reward to anyone who can correctly tell me what this headlight goes to.

I purchased this headlamp off eBay without realizing that it only had a single wire harness as opposed to my '04 with two.

It would appear to be an '03-05 RH Range Rover head lamp assembly.

The unit says US-XEN with part number XBC000348 and a DOM of 12/23/2004.

Unfortunately, neither Land Rover NA or any dealer has been able to tell me.

Help!!!

If it is of any help the ballast is a Bosch Gen II for 03-05 xenons. If it was initial run instead of replacement part production it would be for an 05 NAS spec, right hand side. According to RAVE there is only one plug.

Would the second plug be for the automatic headlight leveling if fitted?

I do not know if the second is for leveling. I will look into it.

Ok, so you are saying that this is a RF North America Spec bi-xeon headlamp assembly. I have rave but did not check. I will now. Do you know what page?

I Checked the wiring diagram in the ETM of RAVE first then double checked the connector pinout for the C0011 you have pictured. As RAVE shows photos for all connector locations the photo for C0011 also shows the area above it as blanked. The long and short is that what you have pictured matches what is in the RAVE ETM for NAS right hand lighting and the Balast you have pictured matched NAS for 2003-2005.

I also have an '04, and it looks just like mine. I thought the levelling feature was standard on all Xenons...

Oh it most likely is. My L322 knowledge is not nearly as detailed as I would like. :oops:

There is no leveling feature on the NAS '05. That's what my 05 headlight looks like. I just changed the ballast a few months ago.

This is a right hand Xenon unit for an 03-05 L322 NA Market without leveling or active headlights.

So there ARE some out there without leveling? Mine is a late build '03 and I have leveling. I don't believe any NA market '03 to '05s had active.

To confirm, I am going to unplug the small wire harness on my 04 and see if I get any errors related to active lights or leveling...I will repost with the results.

Some of the vehicles don't have the self-leveling wiring. My UK spec. '04 Vogue does not have this feature.

I've just replaced the off-side headlight with one from e-bay. The e-bay headlight had the 2nd connector which is connected to a leveling motor in the headlight, and the one that came off the car didn't - just like the picture of your headlight. It has the moulding where the connector should fit [next to the ballast module], although this is just a blank.

I've fitted the new headlight, blocked up the 2nd connector to prevent water getting in, and it all works fine - no warnings [mind you, it wouldn't be expecting anything as there is no wiring harness]. I don't know what would happen if you tried to fit the headlight when the wiring was expecting the 2nd connector.

If you do not mind me asking, what did you pay for your new light assembly.

Re: $100 PayPal Reward to anyone who can correctly tell me what this headlight goes t

I'd been tracking the prices for a couple of weeks. Most had a reserve set at or above £50, although some failed to reach this level and were bid up to aroound £35. Some people still trying to get £90-£100, although that seems overpriced now. Someone trying for £245!

I paid £50 [plus postage] for one, but it included the wipermotor, wiper-arm and trim pieces that I needed.

I needed it because I kept getting the xenon going out. Changing the balast module made no difference, so I assumed it was the igniter inside the headlight, and it was easier to change the whole light than take it apart to change the igniter. Changing the light fixed the problem.

Wow, what an awful design to have the ignitor INSIDE the light housing itself. When I had that problem on my E38 BMW I just replaced the ballast which also contained the ignitor. I think I paid 75 for the ballast though, so it wasn't really much of a cost difference.

I thought I would pass on a bit of info that shows what a terrific community we have. Monies from this posts "reward" were matched by a few other members and a donation of $600 was made to the local foodbank. It's always great to see the generosity and compasion that comes from folks helping others.
