    Euro headlights loose bulbs hid

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I am installing euro headlights and morimoto hid kit.

    The bulbs clip in but they have some play, I bent the tabs as much as I could with the bulb out and it helped a little. I am afraid once I'm driving I'll see shaking or vibration.

    Anyone have this issue or suggestions for a solution besides a full proper retrofit?

    It would be nice if ford used a spring clip to secure the bulb down.

    I'm using these on the backside of my LED bulbs to help hold them in tighter. Not sure if they'll fit on your bulbs, but worth a shot.

    Cool thanks. I was looking for a spacer or something and couldn't find anything. They might be too thick but for the price I might see if they will work.

    They are cheap aluminum and would be easy to sand down to the correct thickness.

    They came in today. Much thinner than I expected. Gonna try them tomorrow. I think they will work.

    Bought my headlights used so who knows.

    The adapters you recommend work perfectly as a retainer clip on the back of the bulb. Thanks again for the help!

    Now I just need to get some decent high beam bulbs and get em on the car.

    Glad they worked out for you.

    I've got Silverstar Ultra for the high beams and am happy with them. I've used the same bulbs on all 3 of my Fiestas and show no signs of going bad.
