Post by melboy on Sat Mar 22, 2014 12:26 pm

replaced both headlight bulbs and there is still a differance between them.
offside nice and bright,nearside not so bright,looked for where they are both earthed but cant find it.
cleaned up all connections but still no joy.

Have you a matched pair of lights and by that I mean both are dipped to the same pattern? or have you a center dip drivers side and a left dip passenger side.

i had no idea there was a difference,i just bought 2xh4 bulbs and replaced old ones.
the reason i changed them was because the nearside wasnt as bright.
and theres still no differance. Sad

If you point the lights at a wall if the light pattern is the same they are the same,

check for glass clarity = is it cloudy?
and then find or add some good earth points.
