hi all ive been trying to tidy up the front end of my r33gts and ive come a bit unstuck.:eek: ive removed the passenger side light unit and repaired it (ie glued the plastic back together):) but the top mount has snapped off on refitting :mad: (was on its last legs anyhow). PLUS the darn low beam refuses to work despite having only unplugged and repluged the same wires in the same places....all other lights work...:screwy: ... HELP as im now without car and its first day of my holidays!!!!
Ideas suggestions on how i can get back on the road without spending a small countries national debt on new lights would be great at this point
thanks
:feedback:

The mounts on the side are ok aren't they? Try using a cable tie for the top just to hold it in position. As for your low beam, try changing the bulb. They can go at anytime really. :)

No fragile than normal filaments, any kind of hard knock can damage it internally, repeated switching on-off etc. Try the bulb first and if you have a Multimeter, have a look at if any juice is coming through.
