Yes another question about euro headlights

Postby nicky gio88gt » Sun Aug 06, 2006 3:01 pm

I just need to know where I can get the bulb plugs for the european headlights. I tried lookin in the faq and as usual it wasnt exactly a fountain of information, and using the search button didnt help much either.  I checked out all the local auto parts shops to. Can anybody help me?

So what bulbs do you have on it :) ? sealed beam or H4 or what.

I'm sure any autoparts strore has what you are looking for.

My setup:


I have H4 bulbs on outer lights, with additional parking light bulbs.  At the inner edge i have sealed beam highbeam bulbs.

Try reading my EURO SPEC INFO topic from bstuff. http://www.bstuff.com/index.php?showtopic=30468






I fill up for $130. Also 11 years of Beretta ownership

Then just grab some H4 sockets from the autoparts store, i'm sure they have those.
Good luck.

Well atleast in here you can find em from the same racks where every other electrical parts are, like wires, switches, relays...

Good luck.

His problem is that North Americans have no idea *** H4 bulbs are because, as far as I know, no cars have them here ... or at least very few do (I'd assume expensive cars might, maybe).

So, local parts stores don't carry the connectors; I am having the same problems (the guy that sold me the lights accidentally gave me two taillights harnesses instead of the headlight one).

To get headlight harnesses, try eBay.  Here is my link to the connectors: Clicky Clicky

They're kindof expensive but be wary of "white" connectors as the white plastic typically melts easier (TYPICALLY, not always).  The lion's share of those connectors claim to be higher quality and they use 14 AWG for the pigtail which is another indication of apparent quality.  Shipping is astronomical tho.

See, I go and tell you something and it turns out I must eat my words.

I decided to check the local "parts store" which, in Canada, is basically Canadian Tire for just about everything.  Well, I perused the connectors section and found an item called "socket" (nothing to do with H4) and it fits.  So, if you can hit a Canadian Tire, then they have them.  If you re-check the local shop, just look for a generic connector that looks like it'd fit because it will; they don't want to pay licensing to the H4 standards people or something so they just refer to them as generic connectors.
