Installing
Install in the reverse order of removal, observing the following:
  Caution
Risk of damage to the headlight.
Do not touch the glass part of the bulb with bare fingers. Fingers leave traces of grease on the glass bulb, which vaporise when the bulb is switched on and cause the glass bulb to cloud over.
Wear, for example, clean fabric gloves when inserting bulbs.
Make sure the housing cover is correctly seated when installing. The ingress of water will lead to permanent damage to the headlight.
–  Test functionality.
–  Check headlight setting and adjust headlight if necessary → Booklet36.1
