xantia lights

Post by fred perry »

I have a 93 Xantia . The lights on dip are dull. Is it possible to remove the silver cover over the dip bulb to increase light and does this work? Also do bigger wattage of bulbs help? Already cleaned lens but this has made little difference.Any advice would be great.

The problem you have is due to early Xantia's having a poor lens design. Later models, say 95 onwards have a different pattern in the glass.

To improve matters you can either buy the later lens to fit to your present lights or alternatively get a pair of lights from a breakers yard.
