Do Japanese want usdm?

Default lowbeam went out for no reason.

Hey guys, long time no post.
My lights are angled too low so i was adjusting the leveling on it with my lights on and i noticed driver side lowbeam was off. I literally touched nothing but looked around for the bolt. I checked fuses, all good. What do? Would the bulb burn out from feeling the housing or what?

Did you try disconnecting/reconnecting the connector? For some reason I dont see your profile on the iphone, but on my bugeye the connector is easily removable, maybe you pulled it a little and it does not make contact anymore.

If it still does not work, swap the bulbs left/right and see if the problem changes sides. That would indicate the bulb is probqbly bad. While swapping, have a look at the bulb filament(s), usually when a bulb is blown you can see it, can range from being slightly distorted to torn apart.

if there is corrosion in the connection, a light movement could cause a interruption in current.
chances are the bulb was failing and you were there when it finally died.
