  1. Dipped beam bulbs

    Alfa GTA
    Help! Just fitted a new Osram Silverstar +50% to the car. I didnt get any fitting instructions with them, and on removing the old bulb it sort of fell out before I could see which way round it was. Am I right in thinking the flat bit of the base points upwards? It seems to fit snugly whichever...
  2. No dipped beam headlights

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I came out after visiting mum in hospital last night to find that my headlights don't work on dipped beam. I've checked the fuses and their ok. Everything else seems to be working (inclduing the fogs that just about let me get home without accident). I suspect that it must be the relay...
  3. I just changed the dipped beam bulbs in the GTA

    General Alfa Discussion
    Only took me an hour, along with much swearing and skinning of knuckles. Thank God I didn't need to swap the high-beam. Fitted Halfords +50%, since one had gone so I needed them on the spot, and Halfords have stopped stocking other makes. They're definitely better than the old ones, dunno...

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi all, A couple of days ago both my headlight dipped beams on my 1999 146 1.6 TS went out simultaneously and haven't worked since. * The bulbs appear to be fine. * I checked the fuse - the fuse is fine * Replaced the relay today and they STILL don't work. :( Any ideas please? Thanks.
