    Default Bulb Warning - Lose Fitting Bulbs?

    Changed all my bulbs to blue on the front, few days later had the warning light for right high beam... took bulb out and it worked again for a day - did this a few pointless times...

    Bought another set and the same happened with these, tried a couple. tried my mates osram and same...

    Put the standard bulbs back in and they felt a lot snugger and no warnings since. (its only ever the right main) blue bulbs everywhere else are fine...

    How does the bulb earth on the main beam, could my holder be bent slightly, can i bend which bit back? oh and bulbs have been put in right everytime

    If i take them out of the light, but still in the holders 9 times out of 10 they'll come back on... then half hours driving the warning ligth comes on, only ever main right side. others have same bulbs and fine... thats why i thought dodgey connector or earth...

    The ones standard ones i put back in are fine and a lot tighter fit. i'll have a proper look when air box is next removed, hands are already in bits...

    Put a small layer of solder on the pins of bulb it will make it tigher in the connector. Be careful not to use to much heat else you will blow the bulb!!
