There is a problem with the halogen high beams on the Discovery 4 - they do a fine job of illuminating the trees, but don't add much to the useful light output from the main projectors. Living where I do I spend quite a lot of time with main beam on, so I want to fix it, but have been unable to find any definitive fixes on t'web. I am thinking of trying a few ideas, first of which is to set the bulbs at a slight angle in their housing using a spacer of some kind (perhaps a bit of wire). I reckon if I angle them up, then the main focus of the beam will go down... After that I may try LED bulbs. Thinking here is that they may just give more uncontrolled light which might fill in the gaps somewhat. Problem is that they are all so different, so which to try first... But before I do any of this, I was wondering if any of you lot had found a fix? Cheers, Roger
Hi Folks, Defender 1997 300Tdi Looking to do a wiring mod so that the current draw for the headlamps is not routed through the column switch, i.e. the classic headlight upgrade. My intention is to do this in a way that does not cut into or alter the existing wiring loom. The attached image is a proposal. Looking for some feedback. Essentially the idea is to put a pair of relays (one for low and high beams) in each of the wings. Power for the headlights coming directly from the battery through the relay (3mm cable), fused in the battery box. In this way, both sets of lamps on each side of the vehicle are still independent. Looks like it is possible to source H4 socket and bulb connectors so should be straight forward to wire up. Run the new cables in some convoluted conduit. Thoughts? Many Thanks, Simon...
The headlights on my landy are the standard issue 1/2 a candle. And the bowls were rusty. So I decided to buy some nice H4 lights with plastic bowls. Decided I may as well add relays too while I am at it. So my question is, do I buy the relays at about £8 a piece from an auto electrical supplier, or the same price for 5 of them from ebay. I know the old saying about buying the best you can afford, but are they likely to be identical units? Anyone bought from ebay and had good/bad experiences with the relays?
StuLee posted a topic in Discovery ForumHello - new people here needing some help if possible. We've got a 52-plate TD5 (facelift edition) that has a couple of issues to sort out but we're a bit stumped right now. The headlight motors are constantly working whenever the switch is set to positions 1/2/3 - it's fine when set to 0 though. We can't work out how to get into the headlights or even what this problem might be down to. Also - problem 2 - The aircon fan motor has seized solid - Any idea if it's possible to 'free' this up or do we need a new motor? Cheers Stu
