This is worth knowing (for some!)
I hope this is useful for some and it may in fact already be known so sorry if it has but.....
I posted a few days ago how my factory fitted Xenons had gone out, well one had anyway, turns out the ballast had been soaking in water for the better part of a couple of years judging by the level of corrosion.:faint:
Audi wanted roughly £300 for a new one and the ones on eBay were still silly prices for used ones, (£120 northwards).:crying:
Cue the useful info part.
In a 'Rain Man' moment I remembered that when I worked at an Audi and Chrysler dealer in NZ when I was going through Uni, I had noted that the US cars used the same brand of some electric components as the Audis.
A bit of research:readit: later hey presto, Jaguars and Chryslers of the same era use the same Valeo HID headlamp ballast.
One Chrysler ballast replacement later I can see in the dark again.
Cost £65 :rockwoot:
One of lifes little wins.:icon_thumright:
Hope thats worth knowing!
