Headlamp bulbs


Hi,

I am off to France en vacances shortly, and whilst I have sourced all the spare bulbs, I am bewildered by the number of bulb types available for dipped and main beam use.

The handbook makes reference to 12v 55 / 60w, but can anyone translate that into the type of bulb, eg halogen?

Many thanks,

Geoff

Re: Headlamp bulbs


55 / 60wt will be Halogen

Do not touch the glass envelope of the Bulb by hand, they do not like grease or moisture, it forms a weak spot on the glass which reduces the life of the Bulb - if you do touch, just use a clean tissue.
