In Topic: Help With Headlights Mk2.5

So it turns out they were the right way round. I tried rotating them 180 and they were even worse. So, upon turning them around the original way I inserted the bulb first, then pushed on the electrical connector, as per previously suggested. Huge improvement! Previously by putting the connector on first then pushing into the holder it must not have seated properly.


Also, I can fully recommend the philips xtreme vision +130% bulbs. I've always used philips upgrade bulbs but I've never used the +130% due to the price. But eurocarparts stock them for £20 (still £10 cheaper than most online bulb stockists) and a lot cheaper then when they originally came out.

many thanks for the video! very useful, I think the one thing I didn't do was put the bulb in place first then push the connector on, I did it the opposite way round, Maybe if I do it this way the bulb will be in the correct position.


Thanks for the tip, but I made sure to wear gloves and give the bulb a clean with some alcohol to be safe.


Will report back!

yeah that was the first thing I checked but it is set to 0 and the lights are still focussed really close to the front of the car. As I say the beam pattern is all wrong but I can't see what I'm doing wrong (probably something really daft!)
