This can happen due to a bad quality of wires. Or it can be because of a higher wattage bulb trying to draw more current and heating up the wires.

1. If you are running a high wattage bulb (more than 65w) then install a relay and change to higher guage wires.

2. If its the normal bulb, then check for wiring fault/grounding/short as the problem has re-occured even after you have redone the wiring.

One of my friends faced a similar issue and the culprit turned out to be the faulty bulb holder that was shorting the circuit.

Higher wattage necessitate higher current (in amperes) which can ruin the switch. With a relay, the switch passes only a fraction of the current for actuating the relay which conducts the actual current to the load.

White fog light, do you mean HID based fog lights ?

It will not be a good option to drive with in foggy weather as it will not give good visibility.

anyway those should be available at any dealer on delhi, pricing may differ a lot between them, you'll have to visit a few stores to get comparision though.

i dont mean HID. what i mean to say is the glass of the fog light should be white. and does maruti suzuki keep fog lights as accessories?

When rjstyles mentioned that there is a screw just atop the assembly, I tried to locate the same on the assembly, but could not figure out that.

2) There is a plastic bolt located at the end of assembly. That from day 1 looked like its adjuster. No. 8 open spanner is required to rotate it. Worked with left headlamp assembly first. Rotated the bolt towards left, i.e. I was standing in front of the car, and then rotated the bolt left side. There was improvement!

Next it was turn of right side headlamp assembly. Rotated the bolt over towards right thinking that it might be design such that one has to rotate the bolt away from engine. I soon realized that this was disaster. On the Himmatnagar trip that we had to undertake, its was horrible to say the least.

Yesterday, rotated the bolt of right headlamp assembly towards left, and there was improvement.

Currently I have not taken any ride, but the height has gone up of beam. There is a wall around 10-15 feet away from where we park our car, I noticed that the height has gone up of beam. Finally now I can get the perfect setting I want.
whats the unsolved issue? there is marking on the light assembly telling you which side to rotate for your requirement.

Have you damaged the for light assembly? most probably you are having a short circuit in the light assembly due to it. buying it from maruti will be a costly option.

And then i have not come across 100/110 bulbs from philips rally. unless, you brought extremepower or similar class bulbs. You might want to check on that too

Hey Blackbeast, thanks for the reply. was not around for a week, so could not look at the forum. coming to the point, i remember that the beam throw was much better in stock bulb, esp. in high beam. when i toook the car to mandovi, they did park it in front of a wall where markings were done indicating the low/high beam levels. but they were not able to match it accordingly and simply said that its the max we can adjust manually since it comes with the leveller.

and reg. the bulbs, its genuine Philips rally 110/100 which i bought from AK traders in JC road. in fact i have also not come across this rating in the forum earlier. but i still have the packets and the bill and both places it clearly says 110/100. and since AK traders is the authorized stockiest / distributor for philips, i believe i am not cheated.

Yes and No. Certain acrylic/plastic lens covers in new cars are prone to fading, brown spots if one uses higher wattage halogens, especially if you do lot of night drives. So check with other NHC owners before you decide.

Fogging part can be avoided if you fix the rubber dust/water cover behind the headlights properly when you replace the bulb.

Jaggu, What about the Swift? I really dont want to take the plunge for a higger wattage bulb for my Swift. I have seen my friends' Verna lens cover fading due to higher wattage bulb. Are you running OEM setup on your Swift for headlights??

Absolutely 100% OEM for me, from iKON to Swift D it was a tremendous improvement and the head light level adjusting and fog lights are good enough for my needs, diesel has better illumination compared to petrol swifts. Yes brown spots come up in swift lens but general dullness i havent come across yet.

Hi Team,

Any one has any suggestions on Flosser 100/90 W H4 Blubs.

I am thinking of upgrading to them for my Esteem and want to check if someone has been using those on this forum.

Awaiting Suggestions from the Masters !
