I've done a search but couldn't find anything here.
Just wondering what each of the three blub sizes are in Mk4 headlamps.
Dipped = H7
Main = 9005
Fogs = H3
Sides = 501
search: bulb type - about 5 or 6 down
I've always been confused with the lighting names, just to check:
Dipped = H7 = Normal lights
Main = 9005 = The ones you flash people with or use when nobody else is around
Fogs = H3 = The ones on your front bumper (is this the same size on the GSi?)
Sides = 501 = The dim ones you use at dusk.
Yep, that's how I see it ....unlesss you have angel eyes of course.....Originally Posted by MikeWarner

What about the rear bulbs - anyone know what sizes they are?
Also, if I put LED rear bulbs in, would this confuse the check control system? - as I've heard that this may be the case (due to difference resistence through the bulbs or something).
Mike where did you order your HID kit from
Looks like this is "Mod of the Week for people"
Astra Sri Turbo
LMF Vauxhall - 01858 433599
Front indicator bulbs are 120 degree pin ones - cant remember the numbers
Rear indicator, fog and reverse are normal 180 degrees
Tail/brake bulbs are 180 degree offset pins
And leds will confuse the hell out of the check control - but putting a resistor in series in the circuit will replicate the resistance a tungsten bulb and all will be well - no idea what size you need tho
