    Evening, well the drivers side has stopped working. Not sure if its the bulb or the unit. Bit surprised as only had them in 8 month and done less than 2000 miles both night and day.

    What are your thoughts peeps

    I would suspect the wiring Nick, I've not heard of great problems associated with the bulbs.

    I know when I used to do the conversions at work it only ever turned out to be the connectors we used

    IF I ever use connectors I always wrap them tightly with insulation tape so that water the risk of moisture getting in is reduced AND the connectors cannot be separated easily

    Probably the ballast as they are fickle things-If you don't get a result from M Style then let me know.I've got a spare one-so you can have it FOC
