    Default Dip Beam

    The o/s dip beam, which is a seperate unit to the headlight cluster, on my 2003 Vectra 2l dti has gone out. Is it a standard bulb arrangement and how do I replace it please ?

    Thanks

    Not sure what you mean about it being a separate unit mate but the easiest way (if you can't get your hand down the back) is to remove the airbox. You'll then see a round rubber cover on the back of the healight.

    Remove that and the bulb twists out

    Default Dip Beam

    Hi,

    Thanks for the quick reply. What I meant to say is that the dip beam was seperate from the main beam bulb. I was worried that it maybe one of those HID type. Does anyone know the type (code) of bulb it is please ?

    Read the How To and search the other dip beam posts. It's a H7 and shouldn't be HiD on most cars.
