Servicing ABM projectors

Post by shegarty » Fri Jun 14, 2019 6:31 pm

Hi all - so glad the site is back up ... does anyone have any experience with ABM projector headlights? I picked up a set for a decent price but the seller didn't tell me that the lower lip light (not sure if that's what it is called) under the high beam in one of the lights appears to be non-functional. Does anyone know if I can do anything about this, and how? Thanks.

It should just take a 5 watt 194 light bulb

When I installed mine I just got to it through the access ports for the high and low beam bulbs

And if your car has had the TSB for short headlight bulb life performed and has the small 6 inch extension harness on the main connector, you’ll have to remove it for that bulb to work

That would be it ... removed and working now
