GTi Headlamp Wiring Failure

Post by ValleyForge »

Really odd...
Driver's side dipped beam bulb went out a week or so ago; bought an H7 replacement from the local parts shop only to find it didn't work.
On closer look, the insulation had cracked on the internal wiring harness. After several minutes of carefully delivering it through the opening - all the insulation promptly falls off.
So I thought I'll pull the harness out through the entry plug. Not possible.
I'll cook open the lamp assembly and get it out that way. Not possible (well 30mins at 120C).
So I ordered a new headlamp assembly (Hella) 6Q2 941 008M which took 2 days, even came with globes.
And the insulation is the same!

Maybe I should have bought the Chinese TYC lamps :roll:
These are the wires to the parking bulbs - just easier to get in shot.
