Re: Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Electronics - Xenon Headlights - Discussion & how t

Not too much point checking the breakers yards as its a fairly common problem.
The Ballast is a small box of tricks that lives in the bottom of each headlight unit. The only way to get access is to remove each headlight. This in turn means at least dropping the front bumper to get access to the light fixings.

In my own case, I was able to remove the light without the bumper as it has had crash damage in that corner from a previous owner.

Its common for the headlight unit to allow water into the ballast which, being electronic is not to keen on h2o. I tried drying mine out but after a few days realised that replacement was needed.

I opted for a universal ballast of of the bay, 22 for 2 (just in case the other goes the same way) with adapter connectors at about a tenner each.

The result was a headlight which works great and cost about 20 to fix. Just went through an MOT last week so I know everythings safe. While I was at it I fitted 2 new bulbs of ebay too. In total I spent 60 and have a spare ballast sitting in the garage.

Hope you get yours sorted as the xenon lights are kak at dusk, even worse when only one works.

I have an problem with my Xenon adjustment system, when i start the car the lights adjusts just like they should, the problem is while driving the lights constantly adjusts/dances.

Anyone have had these problems?

Self levelling not working both motors can be heard and seen to be working but the lights just don't raise up to their normal level.

The adjustment screws (allan key fits) on both headlights, if I'm facing car engine which way to bring up each headlight is it clockwise or anti clockwise and how many turns to expect.

Temp measure until i can have car looked at

hello everyone,
Just realized that I will have to remove whole bumper to change xenon bulb. Did you guys had the same problem or it is just me? What is worse It is second time I have to change this particular bulb this year. I would think they last at least longer then household light bulb!! Sorry but this is really annoying to deal with such a poor "french" design and gives me a lot of headache.
