I had the same issue with the cheaper bulbs. Sylvania sent me some higher end bulbs and have had no issue for years. (I hope that saying that will not bring on a burn-out;)

Chrysler 300 replaced the rear brake pads, now one of them is hanging up

The job was not done correctly

Some step that should have been done, wasn't

Can't tell you what, without seeing & taking that side apart

What about parking brake cables all rusted & stuck

What about lack of fluid flushes every 2 years & now have
rusted & frozen calipers

Bad rubber flex hose restricted inside?

Pads installed dry without removing any rust or lubing
anything. That is a given if you paid someone.

Car manuals

Hi there:
You are right, the nearside dipped headlight has VERY little room and the instructions in the manual are misleading (image HERE)

The image is of the offside headlight where there's enough room to get a camera behind: having studied the image, it's easy to see what to do. The nearside headlight is the same.

1. Push one of the two clips inwards towards the bulb.
2. Once it is pushed far enough in to clear the lip on the mounting, push it sideways, away from the bulb.

Repeat for the other clip. The whole spring clip unit is now released and the bulb can be removed.

In the image, I've drawn a diagram of the bracket (red) with a cross section through the spring in blue - it shows how you push the spring down then outwards.

When refitting, it might be an idea to wear a glove because there is so little room that you will almost certainly touch the glass of the bulb inadvertantly. The locating lug on the bulb goes at the top: the 12-o-clock position.

To refit the clips, push each one inwards and then sideways over the lip.

Remember to reconnect the two-pin socket onto the bulb - I forgot and wondered why the headlight didn't work!

One other thing: a Halfords "477" bulb is an H7 bulb by another name. I knew I had some 477 bulbs from my old Pug 306, but it wasn't until I removed the old bulb that I realised that it was the same - saved me having to make a special journey to buy an H7 bulb.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Seems to me you have a short to ground what you can do is unplug the fuel pump connector then replace the fuse to see if it still blows if it does not then you need to replace the fuel pump and sender if it does blow then you will need to trce the wire back to the fuse panel to see where it is shorted ....

1998 cavalier, front brakes I just had new front brakes and rotors. They asked to install Control arm bushings and lower control arm bushing. I declined. Now the car pulls to the left when I brake. Why?...

I would say your brake work wasn't done correctly,wouldn't you

Did it pull with the old brakes? Doubt it

Control Arm Bushings -- I would resolve the brake issues
first & need a really good reason to do the control arm bushings

Never replaced a headlight on my 1996 saturn sl1 and now I need to. I bought the Sylvania Xtravision 9006 bulbs but the owners manual is no longer with the vehicle and I don't want to break anything...

ask a local mechanic to install for you providing that this high intensity bulb is allowed to be fitted in your country as here in spain they are not allowed unless the headlight has a special code in the number which is the certificate of homoglonation .Well this is spain and they do love the old paperwork ,dont the bulbs fit in from the back with a clip ?¿? most do but some vehicles you need to remove the headlight to fit a new bulb
