Uriyo, light bulbs are a commodity that have worldwide standardization. If you can’t find a number on the bulb, post some pictures of it with the dimensions. This forum hosts some of the smartest minds of our era. After they chew you out for buying cheap Chinese junk headlights, they will be able to suggest an equivalent type of bulb to use.

Get some oem headlights please, no aftermarket headlights will match the 06+ projector. If you want to mod them there is a great thread to get you started below.
https://my350z.com/forum/body-interi...-many-pix.html

If its not a joke and you do want help fixing the aftermarket lights we will need more information. Pictures would be great because as of now we are all just going to laugh at you for the aftermarket headlight because we have no idea what is wrong. Maybe a dead LED??? , but seriously without more information we can't help.

Get rid of the SPEC F tuning headlights, that's your first mistake. Go get yourself some oem headlights. Problem solved.

I'm not sure I know your solution either. But I'm at least willing to help. While those headlights wouldn't be my selection, they were yours. Whether you really liked them, or needed headlights for cheap, is none of my business. I'm not quite sure what you're talking about with the little bulb, I don't have a whole lot of experience with halos. Can you post a pic and we can see if we can figure it out?

If ya want to fix the rings ebay sells the cob led halos you just gota open the headlights is the hard part Gl I have used them haven't had any issue for a year I used them with those black depo for the ironman mod Gl. Btw retrofit source has the reseal (10bucks) for cheap and I think the rings were 15 for a pair when I bought them it's just the time you gota put into

I have the depo 06+ copy headlights in my 03. I pulled them apart and did the sti-r lens and iron man mods with parts from the retrofit source. I bet I didn't put 500 into the set. For resealing you can order from retrofit source or just use a weatherproof silicone from your local parts store.

i have the same spec d tuning headlights. One of my halos went out and i want to go ahead and change out all the lighrs since i want red halos. They arent true halos the bulb is what shines the light inside the halo houseing.


I







These are the lights i have one of the halos went out and i cabt find out how to fix the stupid bulb, yet along find the bulb size





This is the bulb, the little brown things is a connector soldered in it looks like then theres a brown connector at the bottom.





This is what plugs into it the brown connector in the last pic











This is the halo headlight the halos are just plastic housings, there are inserts for the led bulb underneath to shine the whole ring

That looks like a T10, 194 or wedge base with 2 leds horizontally attached. I'd start with taking the code off the base and searching.

If the LEDs themselves are burnt out (doubtful that both go simultaneously), they're easy to replace; check out oznium.com or similar for bulbs which leads which can be snipped and soldered in.

If it is the circuit that is bad, you're SOL unless you find a new bulb.

Far too small to be T10's, those are LED's. I'll bet that little circuit board is fried, if both LED's are out.

I mean T10 base/194/wedge. They're all the same designation I thought.

I know what you mean, but I think that assembly is just way too small - hard to tell the actual size from that pic, though.

I would submit a pic to superbrightleds.com or oznium.com or similar (mouser.com?).

Short of that, desoldering that connector and putting it on something you've rigged shouldn't be that hard.

I'd say your best bet would be to just buy a new set of halos and replace both sides (all 4 if you like). Just measure what size you need. The newer SMD LED halos on the market today are worlds better than these 2 led halos or the fragile CCFL ones.

the retrofit source has some nice ones with built in switchback functionality:
