    Default Headlight help please!!

    Got a 57 vectra (facelift model) I installed HIDS a while back. The other day I had to change bulb but have lost the clip that hold bulb in. IT'S THE DIPPED BEAM I NEED
    What I want to know is the following
    1. Are the clips different from main beam to dipped
    2. Where do I get from and how much, as Vauxhall say they don't sell them separately
    3.any pics would be great

    Really appriciate any help

    It will be different to the main beam, as those use a H1 bulb, not a H7.
    Only place you'll get one from is somewhere like a breakers, unless you can fabricate one by copying the other one from the other headlight.

    Found this via a google

    Are you sure you need a clip? The dip beam on mine is H7 and does not have one. Try and new bulb you might just be able to press it in....

    That's not a facelift bulb as they have metal clips holding the bulbs and there the same on the full beam aswell

    The pic I previously supplied looks just like the way my H7 bulbs are held in, and I have facelift headlights.

    Nope, they're clips supplied with HID kits for preface headlights.
