headlight drivers side

Recommended Posts

yesterday the drivers headlight stopped working, no problem I thought.

Having replaced the bulb it still doesn't work,the passenger side is ok

Are these bulbs fused separately? and if so are the fuses inside the car under the glove box or under the bonnet?

Anybody else had this problem and if so how did you deal with it?

Does your side lights or indicators still work in the same headlight unit that isnt working. If theyre working I doubt it will be a fuse. 

Your bulb may off blown and your new one could be a dodgey one or you havnt put it in propper. Im not saying your stupid but when I first changed for the dipped beam bulb. I hadnt pushed it all the way in.

bulbs can be right dodgy.  Went through a phase of getting some 120% more light ones - much more expensive than standard and were guaranteed for 2 years.  Each lasted about 3 months then packed up.  Don't bother now, just get the cheapos from eurocarparts and have no problems but like Mike said you might of just got unlucky and got a dodgy bulb.

When your bulb blew it is possible that it also caused the fuse to pop as well it happened to me once

have swopped the bulbs over and it looks like its the fuse as the bulb that wasn't working now works in the other side.

Now to work out which fuse it is
