since the headlights don't work right now, it would be hard to tell whether they go down and then back up - since there is no light to watch. if we had someone start the car and someone watch the headlights from the front, would we be able to see movement? again, we would have to check later.
also, one side failed a while back and my husband bought and replaced the bulb. i don't recall him grumbling about the cost of the replacement, so he probably picked up halogen bulbs. HOWEVER, that doesn't necessarily mean that he bought the right type of bulbs (probably didn't know there was a difference).
if we put halogen in, when we were supposed to replace with xenon - would the headlight have worked at all that first time we replaced it?
are we getting closer to figuring out whether we have halogen or xenon?
