    lights

    hello just wondering if there was a way to change the front Main beams so they can take xenon light bulbs instead of taking the light with the attached adapotor. like with the dipped you have the adaptor and can take the light out and swap them over but with the main beam its all one. is there a way of doing this with the main. abit hard to explain but hopefully someone shall know....

    its for a 99reg astra sxi aswel.

    cheers

    any replacement HB3/9005 bulb u buy comes complete with a new holder - so its just plug n play.

    Heres what the bulb looks like if u just get a xenon look bulb



    If u wanna fit proper HIDs then its just the same principal as normal - fit the HB3 into the location, wire into the ballast and other end of the ballast into the original multi plug on the cars loom

    brilliant but is it possible to just take out the buld and cut a few bits n wak a new one in, just because i have some exactly the same but without the adaptor? or does anyone know a place where you can get them as the motorworld and halfrauds where im at are useless!

    if u have a similar bulb but without the adaptor then it quite simpy wont be the HB3/9005 bulb - its more than likely an H1 or H7 instead.

    proper HB3 bulbs come with the holder as 1 complete unit.... u cannot buy the bulb part nor the holder part seperately

    u can buy hb3/9005 from most accessory places.... local motor factors will have em if ur desperate or ebay is ur friend
