question.. midst process replacing bulb

hey, im replacing the low beam bulb on the driver side. (brights work fine and the right headlight low beams work but not my drivers side.)

Ive removed the plug which holds a stanley 168 bulb from the housing socket. I bought an H1 bulb thinking it would be satisfactory but the H1 is for my brights which work.

My questions is to anyone replacing the light if theyve had trouble getting the bulb out or if i need to replace the plug holding the bulb in general

My 99 Prelude takes H1 for low and high beams. No problems with removing them besides taking the boot and metal locking pin off it should be easy.

Re: question.. midst process replacing bulb

the 168 bulb is for your parking lights. its a little tiny bulb. your low beam is an H1.
