I've just changed one in my Passat, if your car is fitted with projector lense dipped lights, here's how....
1, switch off all lights and ign.
2, remove rubber waterproof cap from rear of lamp.
3, reach in and pull the bulb and it's connector out, it is held in place by 3 spring prongs, (space is very tight but it can be done with a little patience).
4. remove the old bulb from the connector.
5. making sure not to touch the glass area of the new bulb, fit it to the connector.
6. install the bulb into the rear of the lense with the tab pointing downwards, it may require a little wriggling to get it located,
7. once the bulb is located in the rear of the lense, push gently untill you hear a click, bulb is now locked into position.
8. refit the rubber waterproof cap.
9. test your lights.
10. if working, enjoy a nice mug of coffee. (I did)
Good Luck

Is the head light in a 2004 passat a bulb with two filaments (low and high beams in the same bulb)?


If it has a normal headlight system than yes the high and low beam are the same bulb the part number will be 1255/H7 If you have HID headlights than you will have a seperate high and low beam bulb. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

The dipped headlights on my 06 passat are very dull is there different strengths of bulbs?


There most deffinatly is you must try and find bulbs with a high WATT rating, however dont exceed 100W or you could end up melting the headlamps. also consider replacing the relay for the headlights, that often makes a substantial difference. just make sure its a good quality relay 30Ams or so.

No dipped beam headlights on audi a4 1,9td 2003


Check up dipped beam headlights fuse inside fuse box. For Audi A4 the fuse box is located on the left side of dashboard behind a plastic cover (for left hand steering wheel vehicle). On inner face of the plastic cover you will find the fuse diagram. If the dipped beam headlights fuse is OK, check up dipped beam headlights bulbs.

Gitting gti lights


The wiring is different, if your Golf had headlights with H4 bulbs then changing to high beam turns dip off. The GTi has separate dip and high lights, on high beam dip stays on (all 4 bulbs on).
