My high beams are only as bright as other mk1's low beams. The bulbs in there now are from the previous owners, but are Silvania's, so I think they are okay. Do you think this could be an electrical issue??
Are they regular sylvanias or the silverstars? Either way check the grounds and clean out the connections on the lap assemblies and the conncetors. It could also be a bad relay with high resistance on the contacts.
regs, I'll check all the connections tonight. The whole bulb and enclosure are silvania if that makes a difference. I have to drive around all the time with my brights because theyre so dim. Its partically risky because of how many deer reside in my part of town.
It really depends on the condition of your car and the climate it's been driven in. I've had it go terribly where I've had to use penetrating lube for a day and still started to strip the phillips heads only to replace them with stainless ones, and I've had it go easily as well on a clean car.
hmm when I first got my MR2 the headlights were kinda dim..then got some Sylvania Silverstars, and it was like night and day. Had to drill out the rusted screws..took one that was salvageable and went to Home Depot and just got ones of the same size. Pretty easy to swap.
