Hello -


 I would like to ask for help determining what my headlight issues is, please see image headlight4. Just bought a used 2006 Cayenne S and went to replace the bulb in the drivers side which was burned out and broken, but was unable to remove the bulb since it was melted into place. I than pull the passenger side and it too was melted into place(the W5W bulb).



1. What caused this, wrong bulb?

2. what headlights do I have? there are many part numbers and issues

3. Since the bulbs are burned into the socket and the socket is melted can I just get this part? or do I have to buy the whole unit? 

4. can I use the valeo bi-xenon units that are for sale on ebay? if so do I have to have a different wire harness and ballast.  not looking forward to spending $1300.00 each if i have to replace both



Any help would be great , thanks Chris
