Hi guys first time using thumper talk with a new topic. Have learnt alot off here.
So my headlight bulbs keep blowing started few months ago. I bought a new rectifier that seemed to solve the problem then a week later they blowing again. I dont want to go and spend more on another rectifier for it just to blow again.
Does anyone have any insight into this?

P.s i havent got a standard headlight its a universal one off ebay.

Bad ground and you'll probably need another new reg/rec once you find and fix the bad ground.
