    Head Light's

    Alright AS,

    While parking up tonight, I noticed one of my lights were dim.

    After future inspection I noticed the driver’s side head light bulb not on.

    The passenger one was on,

    What causes this?

    And should I replace both bulbs?

    Think you may find that its called a 'blown bulb'
    Can happen anytime... just like you house bulbs.

    Usually best to replace in pairs as other one may be gettin near end of life too ???

    Thanks

    Thats what I thought my mate.

    I will replace in pairs, is this an easy job to do? Any idea on the price of a pair?

    How's your car? Do you still get wired noises?

    Bulbs are about £7 quid each... but go for upgraded ones...

    www.speeding.co.uk do them.

    car still makes some weird noises -but goes in for service 22nd mar so ill get em to check stuff.

    As for changing the bulbs its straight forward, Twist the holder and it will pop off pull out the oldbulb fromthe holder - put new bulb in (dont touch the bulb glass) and place holder back ion hole twist till locked and that should be it !

    Good luck.
