Hi,

I have an 8th Gen Civic Type S GT and have an issue with the left side high beam. I've replaced both the bulb and the fuse but it is still not working. Does anyone have any suggestions for what could be wrong?

Have you checked for power coming to the bulb connector?
Could be duff contact or broken wire somewhere in the circuit

IIRC the main beam is an H1 bulb, so only has a "Live" connector to the bulb. which means that there will be a seperate Earth inside connected to the light unit somewhere. Might be worth removing the headlight and having a look inside to see if its still connected.

Ok had a quick look at a video on changing the bulbs and the earth for the unit is directly above the bulb. Heres a screenie of the earth. Might be worth just pulling it off and on just in case its got some corrosion on it.

Thanks for the quick responses. I'll double check the earth wire to see if that's causing the issue.

Need to get hold of a multimeter to check if it's actually receiving power
