I don't think that has anything to do with my headlights. The only rust anywhere on my car is a little bit on the hood from where rock chips are, and that's just a little surface rust. I just think it's a crappy design. I just got tired of spending $15/bulb on the nice sylvanias and ordered a 10 pack of bulbs on ebay for like 8 bucks. Funny thing is they last longer than the good bulbs lolI've had my car 9 years now and I'm only on my third set of bulbs.
I don't drive much but I drive with all my lights on all the time.
(I did the mod where all lights turn off with the ignition.)
I'm guessing that my yearly undercoating/oil spray has kept all my grounds conducting properly so that my ECU gets proper voltage readings and isn't turning the alternator up and down creating voltage spikes.
(Krown sprays all wires and connectors.)
my issue is that I already replaced the high beam bulb but for some reason when i reinstalled it that the light wont turn on. ive checked the fuse and its fine and I even switched the right side bulb to the left side and the bulb is not the issue. im thinking it might be a grounding issue or maybe the wire is cut somewhere but Im not sure where to look to further diagnose the issueThe bulb that you twist then pull out is the high beam bulb.
The low beam has the adaptor and is held in by a wire spring thing.
The spring clip is a PITA to deal with and it's really hard to get in there to replace the bulb.
You'll get good at changing the bulb because you might have to do it every month. lol
The first 3 years I owned the car I put about 120k miles on it. The last year and a half I owned it I changed job duties and work from home, I might have put 10k miles on it but I don't think it was even that much. Most of that was just driving to the airport and back.I just replace my bulbs every December. Haha I drive my car all the Time so I have to replace them. I put on an average of 11k a year
That makes sense to me.I've also learned through trial and error that the cheapest H7 bulbs have the lowest draw and last wayyy longer. I think the higher draw might overload the wiring harness? But I'm not that savvy, it's just a guess
