Hi! Short notes from my "bulb changing project". Left Xenon headlight was flashing or flickering from time to time. To verify that problem really was light bulb it self and nothing else, I changed bulbs from left to right (and vise versa). Flickering effect changed to other headlight, so I was okay to proceed with bulb purchase. I did some googling, and made some conclusions: - cheap non-brand bulbs might last only few months - cheap non-brand bulbs might be different color (different K-value) - cheap brand bulbs might be pirate versions - it's wise to change both bulbs at the same time, because old bulbs are much dimmer than new ones. - FR-V uses D2S type bulbs I bought OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER +70% XENON-D2S 12V/35W bulbs (120 € or 105 GBP per pair). Changing bulbs was quite easy. Some problems though... 1. Remove cap behind headlight. Mine was really tight and I used screwdriver head to turn cap enough. 2. Release spring style clamp on both (left & right) sides of bulb. Opening side is up and pivot point is down. 3. Open springs all the way down, ballast (small box at the end of the bulb terminal) is on the way, but it is possible to get spring clamps over it 4. Pull the bulb out carefully (there is cable hock somewhere, if cable is released from there you can bet few centimeters more clearance) 5. Turn lightbulb 1/4 and remove bulb. 6. Insert new bulb. It goes only one way, and It's really hard to get it right at the first time. 7. When changing bulb on the side that occupies battery, it might be a good idea to remove fusebox clamp (10 mm socket) for more room. 8. Put back cover or cap back and turn it tight. 9. Turn car on and switch lights on. Let there be light!
