Removing headlight assembly per side takes 5 minutes max when you know what you are doing. Plus the bulb can be inserted very easily with very little change of a mishape such as touching the glass.

Hi, does anyone have had following issue: headlight bulbs keep blowing out withing 5-10 minutes after started driving around. Both bulbs together. Now even both front fog bulbs both have are blown.

Voltmeter shows 14.1 - 14.2 V with engine on. Battery is charged (Bosch).

Any ideas where to start looking for problems!? Generator?

Some update: yesterday I found at least 3 places on engine bay where several wires are connected to car chassis (mass of electricity). Through 6mm bolt.

Bolt and also wire endings were corroded, rusty and dirty. Cleaned all parts with sand paper and put together again. Let's see would that help. God bless citroen.
