CS05 - Dipped beam rating

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I'm trying to figure out which bulbs are the dipped beam ones? There are 5 bulbs in the assembly and I am not sure if I should replace the large halogen or not?

can someone tell me which one it is / the rating?

Thanks.

C.

Do you have Bi-Xenon headlights? If it's standard Halogen lighting then the low beam is the higher bulb in the main reflector which I believe is a 55W H7. There are diagrams/instructions in the owners manual.

I've got the Bi-Xenon headlights. I'm assuming I just replace the Xenon bulbs? (One is flickering, one is not)

Yes replace the bulb asap. A failing bulb can damage the main ballast unit. I think the bulb is a DS1.

Might as well replace both. If one is crapping out the other side isn't far behind.. it's just waiting for you to button up the bad side and it will then give a big SIGH.. and die. Also - the color will be different between the sides (even with standard color bulbs - the color changes as they age..)

Pic of the DS1 low beam Xenon. Not sure what the advantages are over the D2 types as they seem to be a little cheaper in costs.
