Ok well i rang up autobarn to double check they were the right bulbs.....and he says they are.....

Im going to double check with you guys to make sure i am doing things right.
I removed the black plastic peice that has 2 screws holding it down to replace the globe, I cant work our where the other globe goes in, like where the other hole is to insert it. Sorry if the question is stupid as i dont know much about this area. Thanks

Hey,

If you removed the Black plastic bit, your looking at the High beams.

To get the the low beams you have to unscrew the round plastic cap at the back of the headlight. You then simply pull the wires and out pops your light buld holder. You may find that the drivers side headlight is a b**ch.(the battery gets in the way)
Im also pretty sure that the low beams are H1s from memory

Hope this helps.

Yep. On a low series, your Lowbeams (accessed via screw on cap at the back) are a H1 bulb. The high beams (accessed via the cap at the top that is held in place by screws) is a H3 bulb.
