I’ve been away for a while, but now I’m back with a question.
I have a 2008 1.8 NC and I’m not sure what bulbs I have in the front, both heads and sides.
Can anyone help please?
Dipped beam - H7 12v 55w
Full beam - H9 12v 65w
Side - 501 12v 5w.
This is why i get confused, i have been told my 2009 mk3.5 needs 2 sets of H7’s for it, but then i get told i need 1x of H7’s and H9’s
H7 and H9 are the ones listed in my handbook for a 2006 Mk3 and I know they’re correct as I’ve just replaced them. This isn’t to say they’re the same for the Mk 3.5. What does your handbook show them as ?
Aww that means going out in the cold and un tuck my car from its winter cover lol… will be back in a minute
The manual gives a 3rd option it shows a HB3!
HB3 look very much the same as an HB9, Not sure but I think the difference is in the diameter of the bayonet fitting. Hopefully someone with a 3.5 will be along to help you soon.
With more and more options appearing i think i will have to start examining closer.
The manual states HB3 and H7, Having looked on the headlight itself this is indeed correct so glad i didnt buy the set as per the 3 websites i used as all 3 were wrong. I can take a photo of the manual to help anyone who wants to see the full listing?
