    Hey guys I need a little help. I just got my headlights put together and turned on. One headlight (passenger) looks good! The other headlight (driver) has a weird glow to it. This never happend before the mod. Anyone have any idea what it could be? Is it a bulb problem? ballast problem? I was thinking maybe the bulb isnt heating up right ? or the ballast isnt power it right?

    Thanks for any help.

    Was the passenger side assembly replaced? Even though it may not show, you may need to restore the driver side lens.

    The passenger side is newer. I was thinking restoring may help. But Im starting to lean towards a projector issue. The light is evenly hazy/ colored throughout the entire housing. Figured if it was a lens problem it wouldnt be so even.
