Recently, the headlight bulb holders of my Vectra A literally melted (don't ask me how, but they did! :shame: ). So anyway, I bought a pair of new holders (non-vauxhall) and wired them up. However afterwards, I have blown (literally, again, into pieces) a pair of headlight bulbs. I think I buggered the connections since the new holders had different colored wires than those of the original...

So, I would like to ask you guys what color of wire goes where with the bulb holders. I think I mixed them up, that's why the "exploding" bulbs (I rewired them at night, stupid move :down: )... The holder has two vertical and one horizontal connectors...

Please help! It's becoming expensive (and dangerous) not to fix this.

Cheers guys!

yup, correct, yellow, brown and white wires... although i could not tell the yellow from the brown wires as both were faded quite bad, so i must have hooked them up wrongly... :crying_2:
