Q: Need a new driver's side headlight.

asked by on

I need to replace the driver's side headlight. It could be a bulb, igniter, or ballast.

It sounds to me like you have aftermarket HIDs, while are very popular. Personally I would recommend installing the stock factory lamps - they will last much longer and are designed to work with the vehicle. Have a mechanic from YourMechanic test and replace the necessary parts.
