Headlights Keep Blowing

24 May 2015 - 07:13 PM

For a while now one or the other headlight has been blowing.  I've then gone to Halford for them to fit a new one.  So last time I was there I had a brilliant idea (that's probably stupid) to have the Xenon +30 HID style bulbs fitted.  This cost a staggering £50 plus about £12 to fit.  In effect this doubled the value of my 04 KA.  My thinking was that they are LED bulbs and less likely to blow.  However, both these blew almost straight away, much quicker than normal and two have never blown at once.  


I have a few questions that would be great to know the answer to :)


Are Xenon bulbs LED, it doesn't say so on the packet?


Is there any guarantee that can be enforced with a bulb?  Should they last longer than a few hours (esp for £50)?


Or is this something wrong with my car that makes the bulbs blow and therefore the cars fault?


Any help here would be great.  I'm sick of paying so much money to Halfords and would dearly love to stop.





Steering Problem Very Strange

19 March 2015 - 07:54 PM

Hi All,


For a number of months the steering has been getting harder even at times sort of grinding.  Then for a day for 2 it can be back to being as good as new.


Any ideas?
