Morning ,

Have had the Mrs headlight not working for a few weeks now.
It had played up before, but a weekend of letting it dry out in the sun with the bonnet up fixed it all up.
This time, no luck with nights of a fans blowing on it, out in the sun all day, and even a full removal and dry out.

Reckon the ballast is stuffed.

Any idea where I’d be able to get a new ballast from?

Cheers

Secondhand from wreckers would be the go.
Have you swapped HID lamps to be sure it is the ballast?

Yep, did the swap over and all good on the bulbs.
Will try and track one down and see how I go from a wrecker.
Thanks heaps.
Just wondered if people had bought them from a supplier locally before.

I thought I’d give it one more crack this weekend.

Knew it was going to be damn hot here is brisbane so parked the car out on the driveway with the bonnet up all weekend and removed both bulbs so it could get out.

Just brought it in, put the bulbs in and bingo!!!

Have ordered some of the butyl tape and will fix the headlight up good and proper this week and do a full dry of the ballast.
At least I know it works.
