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

Hi passenger side headlight on my espace has started to blink on and off, then it goes off all together.

the next day it does the same thing.

from reading on here, it looks like the ballast could be the problem.

how can I find out what ballast I will need please?

thanks
ian

Whilst on a short break in Germany, one ballast gave up and I had to try and make it home on just one headlight. Laguna being Laguna, by the time I got to Folkstone, the other ballast had given up the ghost so I had to drive all the way home on my fog lights.
I'd had my fill of the stupid HID lights, the stupid self levellers and the stupid car. I managed to modify a couple of H7s to fit with the Xenon deflectors removed (2 lt wires from the ballast straight to the bulb) and could adjust them to a reasonable dip but lost the high beam aim (too low) I looked on ebay and a seller was offering a pair of non xenon units for 30 posted, bargain, bought and fitted. now i can see in the dark again!
The reason I'm posting this is because I've seen a few people ask if you can go back from xenon to Halogen and from my experience the answer is yes.
Hi. Did you change the complete light units and if so did you have to modify anything e.g. wiring or connectors etc. Thanks.

No, I just swapped the entire lights over for non stupid HID crap. Use the feed wires to the ballast boxes obviously not the HT wire from the ballast box. No relay's or anything are needed I've covered 10k miles since the conversion without issue. I did snip a couple of plugs from a scrap car just to make things straightforward if I wanted to change a bulb. I did wonder if you could just change the holders at the back of the light unit as the holders are interchangeable, but halogen units are so cheap on the bay that I didn't bother trying. I ran my car for a while with halogens jammed in the back of the HID (Short for hideous) units, which wasn't too bad.
