Re: Replace Low Beam (H11) Head Light Bulbs

I'm done! The instructions make sense, once you've done it once ;-). It took me about 3 hours to remove the first headlight assembly, 30-45 minutes to remove the second. About an hour to put the two of them back in. I used halogen bulbs again, but higher visibility ones, we'll see how long they last...

Re: Replace Low Beam (H11) Head Light Bulbs

I'm still stuck on "remove the wiring harness connector" - is there a trick to it? I can't separate the two halves. Someone posted the same question on the you tube video as well.

Re: Replace Low Beam (H11) Head Light Bulbs

I just found some videos on you tube that I think will help answer my questions.

Re: Replace Low Beam (H11) Head Light Bulbs

Well, I'm flummoxed. I loosened the top bolt, removed the second bolt, then released the clear plastic clip under the fender, but I'm not sure what to do from there. What/where are the front bumper clips and where is the third bolt?

Thanks for any further advice!

Re: Replace Low Beam (H11) Head Light Bulbs

Hi Joe, Thanks for the great advice! I'll be heading to the auto parts store tomorrow. I looked on Amazon and found several different versions of H11 Halogen bulbs, each claiming to have better visibility than the next. However, they have different expected lifetimes (in hours), which isn't disclose...

Re: Replace Low Beam (H11) Head Light Bulbs

Thanks so much, I just discovered today that one of my low-beam bulbs is out!

Should I replace both at the same time? Is the Diode Dynamics SL1 LED bulb a drop-in replacement? I drive with the low-beans on all the time, since our car doesn't have daytime running lights.

Re: Free Charging

Now I feel like a dork. I don't really check the charging status from inside my car very often, because my EVSE gives me very good feedback when I plug it in (green is good, red is bad). So the red plug on the dash is good, you say!?! Ha ha, I assumed it was bad. Thanks for clearing that up for me! ...

Re: Free Charging

Thanks for checking those out, Joe,

I wonder why they don't work with my car? I only have the 3.3 kw charging on my car. When I plug in to the Volta station, I get a red plug icon on my dashboard.

Re: Free Charging

Hi Joe,

The Volta stations are at Sunnyvale's Loehmann's plaza (Homestead & Hollenbeck) near the new OSH store (2 stations), and in Santa Clara in the strip mall at Homestead & Keily near the Safeway east entrance (2 stations).

Let me know what you find!

Re: Free Charging

I've tried 3 Volta stations, but none of them work with my I-Miev, has anyone used them successfully? An electric VW pulled up to one after I'd tried it and had no trouble.
