Can you elaborate, your question seems vague. Plenty of threads here cover that topic.

Your parking lamp is your angel eye or halo... turn your AE's on (one notch to the right of center on your headlamp switch) and get out of your car... your halo on that side should be out. Get a new bulb... take this time to upgrade your AE's depending on what you have in there now... there are a ton of bright white AE's out there - do some research and see the vendor section of this forum for help. Or look at sigs like mine to see what mods people have done for ideas.

Received the bulbs today. Took out headlamp assembly, on further inspection, the wires going to the bulb are dry rot. The also the angle eyes that I order will not fit. Question, can i get the wiring redone, or do i have to buy entire headlamp assembly at the cost of 1400.00 dollars. any help would be appreciated.
