Hella H4 halogen Headlamps

Do Hella H4 headlamps fit in the stock sealed beam mounting bucket (non-RS car), or does it need modification?

Re: Hella H4 halogen Headlamps

Thanks Mark, was told that it may be necessary to enlarge the hole in the rear of the stock headlight bucket to fit in the new halogen unit, but maybe that's for the version that has an integral park/turn lamp?

I had a set of them and had to enlarge the center portion of the bucket to get them to fit.

Re: Hella H4 halogen Headlamps

I just didn't used the rubber seal that goes between the bulb and the connector. I don't drive my car in rainy weather or wash the car with a hose so I've never had a problem.

Re: Hella H4 halogen Headlamps

Mine have been in since the '70's so I don't remember why they were hard to install but I'm pretty sure it was because my car is a RS, so it's hard to get in there and work with the stainless rings that form the outer clamp. That, and the fact that I didn't have a clue what I was doing.
