    Right, bought my car with these headlights fitted.

    Are they aftermarket complete units or have the angel eyes just been retro fitted to the standard units?

    Secondly, just the drivers sidelight (angel eye) has stopped working.

    How can I repair this and sort it out!!!

    Thanks

    Daniel

    These are OEM lamps and the angels have been retro fitted. What do you mean by driver's side light angel not working? Both or just one of them?

    Both mate, yesterday I switched the lights on and got a new light up on the dash. Checked the headlights and on the drivers side the normal low beam and high beam are working fine but neither of the angel eye rings are lighting up.

    Passenger side is bang on and working as normal though??

    Thanks for the reply mate.

    Ok Dan, I know what the problem might be. Check the connections to the inverter linked to the angels....otherwise it may have packed up. I've had this problem before with moisture build up and replaced them for better inverters.

    Cheers dude

    Tomorrow i'm going to strip the headlight off the car and go over all the connections etc and check them out.

    Are they hard to replace for a new set if they are dead? And also which ones would you recommend? MOT's due next week so gotta get them done ASAP!

    Thanks

    MOT won't care about angel eyes...just put your original side lights back in. Let me know the outcome and I will help your source a new inverter .

    Right, it's the inverter that's faulty! Where can I get one or is it going to be a full kit needed?

    This is the faulty one:






    Thanks
