For clarification - the aluminum and especially the lead fuse elements have a probability of poor contact. The copper or brass looking fuses don't seem to have that problem. If you have the aluminum (and especially if you have the dark gray lead fuses) take the fuse out of the holder and verify the contact area is clean and shiny, no groove worn in it.What type of fuses do you have, copper, or aluminum, they can appear intact and actually be no good.
How hard is it to replace headlight stalks?I have a spare headlight stalk and I'm just lazy enough to unplug (but not remove) the installed one, then plug in my spare. Lots of ways to play here!
YesBy sockets are you referring the the female piece that the new bulb fits into?
I think that this would mean taking the bulbs out of the sockets, bending the prongs slightly, then reinserting into the sockets. Then test the lights. Bending the prongs would help to improve contact between the metal parts.If so, how would you bend the connectors while at the same time having the low beams on?
