1098 Headlight issue (small lights)

Hey all

No this is not about the lamp connector melting 😛

I am not seeing the 2 small lights going on when i turn on the switch. The right light works (when i start the engine) and he signal high beam also works.

At the rear there are 3 connectors, i understand that the middle one powers the 2 high lamps and the left-right 2-pin ones are for the small lights?

I powered with 12V the middle one and the lamps turned on, but with 12V at the side connectors nothing turns on. On both of them.

So i assume the lamps are dead, how do i change those? Do i need to disassemble the whole thing? Is it glued? What are the 2 small lamp types?

The bulb holder just twists ccw and then pull out. The stock bulbs can be found at VW and BMW dealers. LED bulbs can be found on ebay but there are tricks to making them work
