Hi everyone,

I am in desperate need of some help. I have changed my headlight bulbs to Osram H7's to upgrade the light level and distance seen.

When changed, i tried them out but the distance was no more than about 2 meters, large crosses appear on the floor and there are areas of shadow big enough to stand in.

I suspected that the bulbs might be faulty, and so swapped them back to the originals. They too are doing the same thing now and giving me the same symptoms.

I took the car to ATS this morning for them to have a look thinking they need re-adjusting but when turning the adjustment screw under the bonnet, and the dial inside the car, no adjustment happens.

Does anyone have any idea on what has happened? I thought it was the bulbs but it doesn't look like it. Have I inadvertently disconnected something inside? The ATS guy says the bulbs could be upside down but they only go in one way....

I have a 2009 focus Zetec S

Can anyone help....

thanks all

I done the same thing with my focus.

You need to put the bulb in the headlight first then put the connector on.

The little tab on the bulb needs to go just inside the lip.

Don't worry it confused the hell out of me aswel. Lol.

No problem mate. As I said before I done the same as you and only realised what I had done when my mot guy had a look.
