Had one low beam light out so I bought two replacements. Like an idiot, I started with the good light when replacing them and the [email protected] retaining ring broke. After cussing for 20 minutes I started to replace the bad light and guess what? Yep, that one broke too. By the time it was over I had ran out of cuss words and made up some new ones.

I'm not going to get replacements from a salvage yard just to have them break again. I believe these babies are about 6 bucks each. Anyone have any pros or cons of who I should or should not get these from?

Thanks.

Just a thought, but you might want to replace the headlight adjustment screws while you're at it. Mine had rusted in place. I think the kit (1 per side) runs about $2-3 per. Very easy to do. Now if only the damn headlights were brighter ...

That's why I bought 2 replacements. The only ones you can get around here are halogens and the working bulb was a standard bulb.

Good idea about the adjuster screws. I'll be sure and do that.
