    Hello, i'm a new DSM owner and recently picked up some new headlight bulbs (low beam) but cant get them to clip into the connector for the life of me. I went back to the auto parts store and had them double check to make sure i got the right ones but it seems I did. Has anyone used this brand before?

    Did you buy a 9006 bulb? I have not sued this brand on a DSM before but I did have them in my old Galant with no issues, if they are the right size they should fit fine.
    Also, what connector are you referring to? The bulb into the housing or the wires into the bulb itself?

    It should just slide in and click in place. I'm not sure what would be hindering you from doing that as long as you are inserting the connectors in the correct direction. Keep trying, you should get it. If all else fails post a decent clear picture of the bulb and the connector and see if anyone else has any input/ notices anything thats off.

    I have run the sylvania silver star bulbs since the came out. Are you sure you didnt pull out the high beam by accident? The low beams are in the center of the headlight, they have a white plug, high beams have a black plug
