Upgrading nissan almera dipped headlights?

Hi, my 2005 Nissan Almera dipped headlights are really dim, even though I've replaced the halogen bulbs. Is it possible just to replace the halogens with extreme brilliance or Osram Nightbreaker bulbs, or would something else need to be replaced to (e.g. upgrade the fuse)? Sorry - don't know much about cars!!

Have you taken your Altima to a dealership in a while? There was a recall on the 05 Altima for misalligned headlights...thus resulting in poor lighting quality...this could be the reason as well...

I would have the complete headlight circuit checked out by a competent tech before buying more bulbs.

I've replaced the bulb, the passenger side headlight is still out. My feeling is the problem is electrical but I'm not sure.


Im assuming that you have check the fuses for the headlights and they are good.If your headlight is HID(Hight Intenstiy Discharge Xenon bulb) The headlight assembly will have a balast that might be defective.Deferentiating the Halogen from HID.Halogen will have a yellowish color when you turn on the headlights whereas the HID will have a whitesh to bluesh in color.If your clk320 does have a halogen then its highly probable you have an electrical problem but if its HID then you might want to replace the balast.
