Knackered Bulb

17-02-2004, 22:10

So I fitted a pair of Philips Blue Vision H4 bulbs from the weekend before last, and having only managed to go out on one occassion at night one of the bulbs has blown!!!! A sum total of about 1 hours use....

Unbelievable, phoned the guys at powerbulbs and they have sent me another set and I shall return mine so they can evaluate what's happenned to the bulb.

Now, I don't know much about all the gasses and stuff inside these bulbs, but from the picture attached (you can spot the knackered bulb a mile off) does anyone know what happened to this bulb???

Maybe some grease on the bulb from when you fitted it?

Did you wash your hands and use gloves :p

Never touched the bulb, only held it by the electrical connector, is this what happens to them when they get grease on them then?
