  1. Dodgy Headlamp

    I've been replacing the drivers side as well so that they matched but they were always fine when I took them out. I still have the driver side Halfords one so I'm going to put that in and see how it goes. I don't think they are loose and they aren't touching the inside of the lamp. It's weird. If it happens again with this bulb maybe its worth getting the wiring checked then. Thanks for the help

    No I'm not. I've always used the metal rim bit to hold it not the glass :)
  3. Dodgy Headlamp

    Hi, Just wondering if this is a common problem or if I'm just really unlucky. I've had a 2008 Focus (the facelift one) since October last year and I'm burning through headlight bulbs on the passenger side. Not sure if its just because its been cold or if the headlamp is duff but its not fogging up inside so I don't think its leaking. So far its had the standard halogen ones it had when I got it, then I got some Halford ultra mega brilliance (forget the exact name) and these only lasted about a month, and then i got some decent brand ones which lasted a while but everytime the passenger side goes. Any suggestions? Also, if it means replacing the whole unit I might just go for some aftermarket ones if anybody can recommend anything decent? Thanks for the help!
