    Default Headlight Bulbs

    I wonder if anyone can help with this?

    Ever since I have owned the car I have had a problem with the passenger headlight because the bulbs keep on blowing, had this happen about 4 times so far.

    I am not touching the bulb light itself, the left headlight is fine? I am running out of ideas and this is starting to cost me a fortune.

    Could it be a power surge to the light it self or something?

    Could anyone please help?

    Thanks in advance,

    Martin

    Sounds very strange indeed, not come across this one myself, but if you can do check the Voltage at the bulb and see if it is higher than usual but this situation does not sound like a simple one, sorry!

    A friend of mine had the same problem (not sure which light but one kept blowing) the local garage advised him to change both headlight bulbs (not just the blown one) and hey presto problem gone... go figure! no idea why this fixed it but it did...
