Papa Smurf.

I've got two relays that were hooked up to those HID Xenon light system, one relay to cover each one.

Perhaps best to replace both of those relays just in case?

Update,

Had a good look today under the bonnet.

Those pricks from Autobarn Upgrade Team, stole both spring clips that held the bulbs in position in the headlight unit. Also discovered a torn rubber dust sheath on passengers side headlight assembly.

It was all intact before taking the vehicle down to Upgrade Team for a check. Won't be going back to them again.

Mongrels. Do you have pick a part wreckers down there ? Hopefully you get the spare bits easily enough.

@ 93EB,

Yes, there is a ABC Wreckers at Oxley, I can go there and see if any bits laying around. $2.00 fee to enter the premises though. Might get another drivers seat whilst there, upholstery on mine is coming apart.

Update,

Went back to Autobarn and their so called Upgrade Team today, Wednesday 24th May 2017 and spoke to the Manager of the store and workshop manager, they both cannot understand why the H4 bulbs were removed, the workshop manager and one of their techies stated another techie could have removed the bulbs thinking they were no good without the other people knowing about it.

They did not offer a replacement of same or offer compensation. They offered to sell me two H4 bulbs , their stuff up, they should wear the cost. Maybe next step might be Office of Fair Trading Queensland if such an agency still exists.

To add insult to injury, the person who was under the bonnet playing around with wires and eventually removing the wires never produced the alleged faulty item to me for inspection and confirm they were faulty as in melted, burnt or other condition.

The person who removed the wires and ballast had done so on the assumption I was going to have it replaced by them on the following Monday. I received a phone call on Friday evening ( I just came back home from Autobarn) and again on Saturday morning from their workshop manager informed me the items are sold out, only expensive Philips HID H4 system available for $299.00 + $120.00 to wire up, time wise somewhere between 1 and half to 2 hour. I said NO like four times.

Surely one would check if they had stock to begin with before they started removing the complete HID system, it's not rocket science.

Update,

Had a new HID System installed. Took about 25 to 30 minutes. Now to get the bulbs realigned.

They appear to be very different compared to the others I had. Cant see any inline fuse with these ones.

@ Mad2

I ended up getting SunWolf 55w HID system with H4 High/Lo bulb.

Next one I get might go for 100w HID.

The system is wired through the existing headlight connectors, no inline fuse as such, I would thought there would have been.

You would want to adjust them low mate. 55w HIDs will be super bright. Im using 25w HIDs and even that lights up the road.

@93EB,

I don't know how to adjust these properly.

I can see a small white dial at the far side behind the headlamp assemble and another large orange looking knob.

The previous HID lights were aligned correctly (done at a detailer place) about 4 years ago.
