2004 C70 Head Light Harness Issue

Post by kcv70 » Tue Mar 13, 2018 2:21 pm

The driver's side low beam bulb needed replacing, but the plastic adapter had burn marks and crumbled when I tried to replace the H11 bulb. I bought a replacement adapter from the dealer, but do not know how to join it to the bare wires where the old adapter was. I would appreciate advice on how to join these two parts.

It does not matter, halogen bulbs have no polarity. Just hook it up and go.
If you don't know how to splice two wires together, find somebody that does.
