help needed( JDM headlight bulb question

Ok so when I buy the silverstar H1ST I see it has only 1 prong. But upon opening the lude i see the connector has 2 pin slots in it...what to do? What is the model no for the JDM head light bulb?

ST is just the part number it is a H1ST. it only has one "prong" because it only needs one. you need to remove the stock light and replace that bulb w/ the silverstar. than there is a wire clip that locks the bulb in place. than you return the bulb to the headlight along with the gromet. finally plug the headlight back in.

trial and error may work if you are not familiar w/ the 5th gen headlight.

good luck

1. pull the headlight bulb plug off.
2. remove the rubber seal that goes around where the headlight is.
3. push in and move to the side the wire retainer that holds the bulb in the housing.
4. pull out socket and bulb.
5. remove bulb from socket and discard or keep old bulb.
6. do not touch the glass on the new bulb with your fingers, the oil off of your fingers can cause the bulb to blow when lit up.
7. put the new bulb in the socket.
8. installation is reverse of removal.

thats easy enough hope it helps.

Re: help needed( JDM headlight bulb question

So USDM and JDM run the same H1 bulbs? As I know nothing about JDM just trying to help this guy out. But I would say if both makes use H1 bulbs you have some crap tastic eGay stuff there.

As you were saying you see two metal tabs for plugging into the wire harness? Need pics to help any further
