Your outer lamps need to have the big bulb holder to take the H4 Bulb. The H4 is a 2 filament bulb to work dip and full beam where the small H1 bulb is only a single for full beam only. So basically the lamp with the small slit is only use for the inners and you'll have to get outer lamps to hold H4 (3 pin) bulbs. No need to rewire.

Cheers, Peter.

Not all quad lamp setups had H4 outer lamps as standard.

Can't remember which version it was, but one type came with H1 bulbs in the outer and inner lamps

Hi bulbs look like this incase anyone doesn't know:

When you put full beam on the outer lamps would go out and the inner come on, so you only had 2 lamps lit at any time

Rather than the H4 outer lamps which gave you 4 lit up at once.

You can fit and run the newer lamps but you'll need to do a bit of re-wiring.

Or buy some H4 outer lamps My link
