Re: Need Euro-Light Part Number

They're the same for all euro headlights, that have one lamp for low/high
beam, which is indeed a H4 (60/55W standard). I just pulled mine, and it
says AMP 927 284 (which might not be the part #). As the lights are
standard parts, you should be able to use a standard universal H4
connector. (cost me $6 at the auto parts store)  I've been able to do so
when I needed to replace the connectors on an MG B and a VW Jetta
(oxydised, RIP)

My attempt at ASCII art:

* __      *
*          *
*         |*
*          *
* __      *

See above!

Good luck Al!

             they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
